Waco City-Wide Trails Master Plan

PROJECT TIMELINE

PUBLIC SURVEY

The City of Waco is preparing a master plan to expand and improve the community’s trail system. This planning initiative offers you – the residents of Waco – the opportunity to provide feedback on the biking and walking trails that make our community a great place to live.

Public input is the foundation of any successful planning effort, and your involvement will greatly help in the development of a trail system that best addresses our community's needs and desires. Please take a little time to tell us how we can enhance your trail user experience in Waco.

This survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete, but you are not required to answer every question. All survey answers will remain confidential, and your information will not be sold or used for solicitation.
