The Valparaiso Pathways and Greenways Master Plan should be incorporated into the city's Comprehensive Plan and Thoroughfare Plan. The design details and standards should be incorporated into the public works / street right of way standards.
The green infrastructure should be an update to the Park and Recreation Master Plan. While this document studied the pathways and trails within the study area, the results of this study truly formed an alternative transportation plan that can be used by the city for marketing and grant funding, etc.
The Valparaiso Pathways and Greenways Master Plan development resulted in various planning maps. These maps show key elements of the community that have been identified, including schools, parks, and other community destination points.
This map represents the various segments of the overall system. Each of the various segments have been color-coded for their identification of the pathways type.
This map represents the various trail segments of the overall system plan, but instead of displaying the individual segments, the plan identifies both loops (or circuits) that close on themselves for both city loops and county loops. The plan notes the length of the primary loops in miles.
The Transit Map illustrates both mass transit (bus) routes and proposed bus hub and transfer stations within the community. The plan also illustrates current planning for the extension of the SouthShore Lines Train transit and related hubs and stations.
