Howard County is updating its 2007 Pedestrian Master Plan.  The new Pedestrian Plan, WalkHoward: Moving Forward, continues efforts to improve walkability in Howard County. Our community is happier, healthier, safer and more efficient when we have a system of sidewalks, pathways, bus stops and roadway crossings that make it easy to get around on two feet and in a wheelchair.

This Master Plan will address walking in all of its forms – whether you are trying to get somewhere or just taking a casual stroll somewhere you love.

So join us in developing an integrated and safe pedestrian network by participating in an open house and telling us where a spot improvement is needed.
