Active Transportation Plan

Active Transportation Plan Village of Sodus Point

Public Open House

The purpose of this open house is to provide residents and visitors with an opportunity to review the draft analyses and recommendations of the study and provide feedback before they are finalized. The Open House will provide an informal setting for attendees to ask questions and discuss the draft materials. Interested residents and stakeholders are invited to attend the Open House at their convenience between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM.

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.

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.
