The creation and support of a healthy and active community is at the heart of the Decatur Community Transportation Plan. For this plan and the City of Decatur, that means establishment of a safe, integrated, transportation system that promotes bicycling and walking as a viable alternative to automobile travel, increased connectivity between neighborhoods and destinations, and equity for users of all ages and abilities.

The transportation system envisioned in the CTP is an environment that promotes the health and vitality of all citizens and visitors. As the focus is fixed squarely on increasing opportunities for non-motorized transportation alternatives, it provides safe and reliable options for everyone to become active participants, both physically and socially, in the community. It is especially beneficial to the city’s most vulnerable populations such as low income households, children and older adults, all of who experience differing physical, mental and financial challenges to mobility. This participation not only provides immeasurable benefit to the individual, but also to the collective spirit of the city.
