- Multimodal Planning
The State provided a grant and hired consultant Michael Baker International to coordinate a multimodal plan for Goochland County's Centerville and Courthouse villages. The Multimodal Plan is evaluating Bicycle/Pedestrian recommendations in the County's Comprehensive Plan for two of Goochland County's Designated Growth Areas: Centerville Village and Courthouse Village.
The plan will also evaluate existing Bicycle/Pedestrian infrastructure in Centerville and Goochland Courthouse Villages. The goal for both villages is to make recommendations to improve Bicycle/Pedestrian planning which promotes interconnectivity, accessibility, safety, and appropriate design. A separate goal is to evaluate the demand for potential transit service to the Centerville Village and Support State efforts to promote safe alternatives to vehicular traffic.
The multimodal plan kickoff started with a community meeting on November of 2021. The consultant reviewed information from the county's comp plan and major thoroughfare plan and community input. On May 18th, they presented their recommendations during a second community meeting.
The recommendations from the multimodal plan will be added to the ongoing village plans.
