Pedestrian Master Plan Tools and Resources

Tools and Resources

Pedestrian Prioritization Tool

Montgomery Planning asked for your help to identify how and where you would prioritize pedestrian infrastructure improvements through our Pedestrian Prioritization Tool. This feedback helped inform equitable and data-driven decision-making on the Pedestrian Master Plan’s recommendations and its future implementation.

Pedestrian Shortcut Map

The Pedestrian Shortcut Map is part of the county’s first Pedestrian Master Plan aimed at making walking and rolling safer, more comfortable, convenient and accessible for pedestrians of all ages and abilities in all parts of the county. It is also an effort to understand what informal pedestrian connections – apparent in trodden grass, dirt or gravel on public or private property – exist in Montgomery County.

Pedestrian Level of Comfort Map
