In a visionary approach for creating a sustainable community, the City of Wilburton enlisted LandPlan to facilitate a trails and sidewalk master plan to guide future growth. Trails and sidewalks utilized as alternative transportation corridors could serve to reduce traffic congestion helping to improve local air quality. Since the majority of automobile trips are less than two miles in length; offering viable alternative transportation choices through trails and sidewalks would encourage people to bicycle and walk more often, especially on short trips, thereby reducing traffic congestion and automobile emissions. The development of alternative transportation facilities will help ensure the development of the trails and sidewalk master plan will help ensure that Wilburton continues to be a healthy community with clean air, limited congestion, and recreational opportunities.
