Active Transportation Plan


Active Transportation Plan Village of Sodus Point


Project Purpose

Sodus Point and the Genesee Transportation Council (GTC) are working with Barton & Loguidice and Landis Evans + Partners to prepare an Active Transportation Plan for the Village. The Plan will provide Sodus Point with a community- based, data-driven blueprint to guide future decision-making about infrastructure investment while favorably positioning the village for future regional, state, and federal funding opportunities. The primary purpose of this initiative is to develop a system of sidewalks, on-road bicycle facilities, and multi-use trails that safely and equitably accommodate bicycle and pedestrian traffic throughout the village. This will be accomplished by introducing conceptual designs and policies that, when implemented, will transform the village into a walkable and bike-friendly community that positively impacts residents’ health and contributes to overall economic growth.

The experience of walking and biking in the Village of Sodus Point should be safe, convenient, comfortable and enjoyable. Village businesses and attractions must be equally accessible to both motorized and non-motorized traffic. Sodus Point currently offers a range of pedestrian and bicycle environments, from an urban-like experience in the central business district to a more rural and natural experience along Lake Road and State Route 14. However, the mix of motorized and non-motorized traffic often creates hazardous situations. Active transportation improvements will elevate safety for all modes of travel, establish connectivity to historic, cultural and natural resources, and help Sodus Point reach its potential as a healthy, attractive, vibrant and resilient 21st-century community.

Kick Off Meeting

April 25th, 2019

The Steering Committee met to review the draft timeline and to comment on the map features.

Walking Tour

On June 5th  Steering Committee met for a walking tour of the Village.  The Village was divided into three sections (the loop and Wickham Boulevard areas, the lighthouse and Bay Street to Fitzhugh and south on Route 14 to Margaretta Road and Harriman Park and the Heights area).  Three groups took about 90 minutes to walk these areas with the consultants to identify trouble spots that inhibited bicycle and pedestrian circulation.  The committee reconvened at the Village Hall to summarize their findings and determine the date and format for the first public meeting.

July 4th Breakfast on the Bluff Display

Consultants and members of the Steering Committee will staff an display table with graphics and surveys during the Breakfast on the Bluff event on July 4th at the lighthouse.  This open format will encourage discussion about the project and offer the opportunity to obtain important feedback from both residents and visitors.

Community Assessment / your opinions matter.

Thank you for participating in this assessment. Your feedback is important to help shape Sodus Point’s efforts to improve active transportation throughout the Village.
