Brookings Bicycle Master Plan
Brookings, SD started their bike plan with a serious goal in mind – to become a Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Community by the year 2040. To reach this status, they asked Toole Design to develop a plan that will help them become a place where bicycling is a safe and comfortable way to make trips, year-round, throughout the city, for students, residents, or visitors. Our creative public outreach process reached over 1,000 residents, and informed recommendations for policy, programs, and key corridors that had widespread community buy-in. The final plan gives Brookings specific action items to implement their plan, assigns leadership, and outlines costs. The recommendations have already been added to the City’s 10-year Capital Improvement and Reinvestment Plan.
