The project will occur over seven months and will consist of the following three phases. Opportunities to be involved will occur throughout the entire process.
Phase 1. Facility Assessment
Phase I consists of collecting and reviewing all pertinent data and previous planning studies in preparation for engaging stakeholders and the general public. Phase 1 includes the development and launch of the project website, development and implementation of the community questionnaire, the stakeholder tour, a variety of community field activities, the Complete Streets/Smart Mobility Workshop, and the first Public Workshop.
Phase 2. Data Analysis
The second phase of the planning process includes development of a preferred set of recommendations for physical projects, policies and programs to bolster pedestrian, bicycle and equestrian facilities; sense of place in the Valley communities; economic development; and image and identity. After vetting the concepts with the Advisory Committees and staff, the MIG Team will organize and facilitate a second Public Workshop to present the Draft Plan Concepts.
Phase 3. Plan Development and Adoption
The final phase of the planning process will focus on refining the plan concepts, developing the action-oriented implementation strategy and design guidelines, developing the plan document and vetting the Draft Plan with the committees, community and key decision makers. The third phase includes three drafts of the Pedestrian, Bicycle and Equestrian Master Plan document and the third Public Workshop. The final phase will conclude with adoption of the Final Big Bear Valley Pedestrian, Bicycle and Equestrian Master Plan.
