Active Transportation Plan Interest Survey

Active Transportation Planning is planning, designing, constructing and maintaining a safe, comfortable, and efficient roadway network for users of all ages and abilities mainly focusing on walking or biking. Active Transportation Planning helps plan a network that provides connectivity, improves safety, supports consistent project implementation, and increases awareness. The Village of Swanton is considering embarking on creating an official Active Transportation Plan to allow for better planning of said networks (espeically towards Oak Openings), increased awareness, and potential funding opportunities. VIllage Council kindly requests your participation in this survey to garner information to help aid in their decision. Please click here to take the quick survey. Thank you in advance!

We ask for your patience as this storm is expected to consistently drop snow for many hours. Crews work towards making streets passable, not perfect.
