Everyone enjoys being a pedestrian in Boulder for all types of trips — walking is easy, safe and well-connected.
To create a pedestrian network that is:
Safe and comfortable: Walking in Boulder is safe, secure and comfortable for everyone, in support of Boulder's Vision Zero goals.
Equitable and inclusive: Boulder is walkable and accessible for all, no matter who you are or where you live.
Vibrant and inviting: Public spaces and pedestrian facilities are vibrant and inviting, and walking is the preferred way to get around.
Healthy people and environment: Walking for transportation and recreation in Boulder is used to achieve improved health outcomes, social connectedness, and a sustainable and resilient environment.
Connected and barrier-free: Access to destinations and other modes ("walk extenders") is direct, efficient, barrier-free and integrates new technologies and innovations.
The vision and goals of the Pedestrian Plan were developed based on feedback from the community, the Pedestrian Advisory Committee (PAC) and the Transportation Advisory Board (TAB).
