Regional Walkability Plan2022-05-03T12:53:57-07:00

Help us make Southern Nevada streets more walkable

Many streets in Southern Nevada are uncomfortable for pedestrians; sidewalks are often obstructed by light poles, end abruptly at the edge of undeveloped properties, or do not meet universal design standards. Additionally, wide roadways, suburban development patterns, and a lack of pedestrian scaled lighting, shade, and street activity contribute to lower levels of walkability and daily activity.

To overcome these challenges, the Regional Walkability Plan will serve as a blueprint for a walkable street network that connects all people to community destinations, workplaces, and transit. The plan is an implementation action of the On Board Mobility Plan, and aims to improve community health and increase pedestrian comfort and safety.
