Recently, the Fresno City Council unanimously voted yes to the citywide Active Transportation Plan. This plan is set with a new prioritization tool meant to benefit the community and its transportation needs. 

This tool is designed to help advocates and community members to rate which project should be prioritized over others. 

According to an article by Streets Blog, "The Active Transportation Plan calls for adding 947 miles of bike facilities and 661 miles of sidewalks throughout Fresno in the years to come, at an estimated cost of $1.3 billion." 

This new system of prioritization was initially set to be voted on in December, but was delayed. Thankfully, it was passed early March and is an exciting step forward for Fresno.
