Fairfield County Active Transportation and Open Space Plan
The Fairfield County Active Transportation and Open Space Plan (Fairfield County Plan) follows three developments that have occurred in Fairfield County; publication of the Fairfield County Development Strategy and Land Use Plan, a Healthy and Smart Development project from the Fairfield County Health Department, Community Health Development and two applications to the Safe Routes to School Program. Significant events are occurring in Fairfield County that further drives this plan; the City of Lancaster comprehensive bike trail, the City of Pickerington’s trail along Diley Road, and the City of Pickerington’s Comprehensive Bikeway Plan.
The Fairfield County Plan will be a major accomplishment of regional collaboration between local governments as well as those agencies responsible for development, recreation and transportation within the county. The Plan, prepared in response from the Fairfield County Regional Planning Commission, will develop an overall planning and policy ethic for Fairfield County identifying goals, policies, and objectives for the future of the county. The Plan will also provide a benchmark for guiding planning related decisions and as a point of reference for more detailed plan implementation action by responsible officials and agencies.
