Study to Guide Future Transportation Plans in Cave Creek and Carefree
A study is currently under way to evaluate transportation issues and needs in the adjoining Towns of Cave Creek and Carefree and develop a comprehensive transportation master plan (or framework) designed to guide future local and regional planning.
While each town has unique and distinctive attributes and community values that will be acknowledged in the study, their mutual needs will be integrated to form a seamless transportation framework.
How will the community be involved?
MAG and its partners will provide several opportunities for local residents, business owners, community organizations, recreational users, visitors and other interested parties to participate in the study process, help identify specific community and user issues, needs and wants, and to provide input on study recommendations.
Upcoming public participation opportunities:
- Public Meeting
Sept. 10; 6-8 p.m.
Carefree Council Chambers
100 Easy Street, Carefree
Key objectives of the study include:
- Continuing development of the regional bike network on Cave Creek Road, Tom Darlington Road and Pima Road, developing a community bike loop around Black Mountain, and enhancing associated economic activity with cycling,
- Developing bicycle and pedestrian linkages between the Cave Creek and Carefree Town Centers and
- Developing strategies to improve access, parking and safety for the multiple special events in the Towns.
The study will inventory existing conditions, identify deficiencies, forecast needs, develop transportation policy and identify and analyze alternative solutions to improve safety, mobility and access for residents and visitors.
