Through the Lewes Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee, seven goals have been proposed:

  • Continuous, safe bicycle and pedestrian network that ensures a contemporary pedestrian-friendly environment for visitors and residents. 

    • Low-stress family friendly routes encouraging more biking and less cars in town.

    • Safe, well-designed pedestrian walkways and bikeways.

  • Adequate and secure bicycle parking and pedestrian amenities at all major trip destinations, including but not limited to all City parks. 

  • Ensure safety for pedestrians and bicyclists is incorporated into all discussions related to the design, maintenance, or enforcement of all City & State maintained roads.  

    • Through collaboration with DelDOT, prioritize projects to promote safe & friendly biking.

  • Bicyclist and pedestrian well-being and safety shall be a cooperative undertaking. 

    • All aspects of City government, including its committees, committed to prioritizing bicycle and pedestrian safety initiatives in their work.

  • Continuously improve bike and pedestrian safety through educational programs.

  • Adopt community engagement strategies to monitor use of pedestrian and bicycle facilities. 

  • Develop a concise plan with achievable short and long-term goals.
