Philadelphia Trail Master Plan Now Open for Comments


The Philadelphia Trail Master Plan is available for public review until May 31st. The plan is the first of its kind in Philadelphia and was recommended in Philadelphia2035 to coordinate the planning and construction of trail systems in Philadelphia going forward. It inventories existing trails and details and prioritizes 75 proposed trails citywide. The implementation of the plan includes forming a Philadelphia Trail Committee to coordinate proposed trails citywide. The plan will be adopted by the Planning Commission this summer. Public comments on the draft plan are due at the end of May and can be emailed to Jeannette Brugger at jeannette.brugger@phila.gov.
