The City of Asbury Park was awarded a Local Technical Assistance grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to conduct a Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan for the City on April 18, 2017. NJDOT assigned consultant WSP to lead the development of the plan. Steering committee meetings, focus groups, public meetings and a public input "WikiMap" were utilized as the community outreach efforts for the project. The goal was to produce a comprehensive plan for pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure that is achievable and serves all residents of the Asbury Park community - all ages and abilities.
The final Plan for Walking and Biking was adopted as a sub-element of the City's Master Plan Circulation Plan Element by the City of Asbury Park Planning Board on April 8, 2019.
