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.
Residents Envision Safer, “Complete” Streets for all Users
This past spring, community members had an opportunity to weigh in on potential options being considered to address the transportation priorities identified by residents, recreational users and visitors. Those priorities include: bike lanes, sidewalks and crosswalks, new multi-modal trails, additional business parking and maintaining local streets.
Recommendations will be presented at final Public Meeting:
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.
