About the Committee

Active Transportation Plan Steering Committee is a growing and active group of engaged residents, City officials, and community partners and/or leaders that work to ensure the Elyria Active Transportation Plan is moving forward, and efforts to revitalize human-powered transportation options stay on track.

Committee members are responsible for attending meetings, executing tasks from said meetings to engage community partners and gather feedback, as well as generally representing the needs and desires of the community.


Active Transportation Plans aim to create safe, easy and fun opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities to choose human-powered transportation options. Human-powered transportation includes biking, walking, skating, scooting, and rolling to get where you want to go. When it is safe and easy to choose human-powered transportation, communities can reverse the nationwide trend toward obesity and chronic diseases associated with inactivity.
