Active Transportation Master Plans & Implementation

Target: Salina, Chouteau, Langley

A community wide plan focused on maintaining, improving, and creating new opportunities for active modes of travel (i.e., modes powered by human energy that involve some level of physical activity, including travel by foot, bike, wheelchair, scooters, and other types of mobility devices). Active transportation master plans can address all active modes of travel or be stand-alone bicycle or pedestrian master plans.

Parks and Open Space Master Plans & Implementation

Target: Salina, Langley, Pryor, Locust Grove

A community wide plan focused on preserving, improving, and expansion of green infrastructure (e.g., parks, nature, and open spaces with trees, plants, and soil). Master plans within this strategy may be developed for parks or open spaces that include recreational greenways to add and maintain trees and related green infrastructure.

Complete Streets Policy & Implementation

Target: Hot Spot Region

Complete streets policies establish a commitment to safely accommodating people using all modes of transportation – including driving, bicycling, riding transit, and walking –in the planning, designing, construction, and maintenance of transportation system. Complete Streets implementation includes actions to operationalize this commitment to all modes of transportation through infrastructure improvements, pilot projects, and programs.

Safe Routes to School Policy & Implementation

Target: Salina

Policy prioritizes making walking and bicycling to school safer and more accessible for all children, including those with disabilities, and increase the number of children who use active modes of transportation to get to school.

Social Support Interventions in Community Settings 

Target: Hot Spot Region

Community-based social support interventions for physical activity combine physical activity opportunities and social support to build, strengthen, and maintain social networks that encourage positive behavior changes. Interventions can also include education and group programs.

Wayfinding

Target: Pryor, Locust Grove

Signage and maps that increase awareness of places to walk, bike and promote placemaking. Placemaking is a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces.
