Fairfield Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

The goal of this project was to create a comprehensive framework to guide the development of biking and walking facilities in Fairfield.

The main purpose of the plan is to create a comprehensive framework to make possible the development of new and con­tinued improvement of existing biking and walking facilities. The implementation of recom­mended plan actions, policies, and strategies will greatly improve the quality of life in Fairfield and its attractiveness as a community. The plan is built on the following five general goals:

  1. Transportation: to expand opportunities for bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the town;
  2. Environment: to protect and preserve the environ­ment and Fairfield’s natural resources;
  3. Economy: to improve the local economy by providing high quality recreational and multi-modal facilities;
  4. Health: to increase oppor­tunities for bicycling and walking as a means to achieve improved physical fitness; and
  5. Safety: to reduce the fre­quency and severity of vehic­ular, bicycle, and pedestrian-related accidents.
