The City of Sanibel has a long-standing and celebrated commitment to providing residents and visitors with a variety of safe and convenient transportation and recreation options.
In support of this commitment, the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) in coordination with the City of Sanibel, have embarked on an assessment of the City’s Shared Use Path Network that will serve as an update to the City’s Shared Use Path Master Plan.
The City of Sanibel’s Shared Use Path Network is one of the most comprehensive, well-traveled, and enjoyable pathways for bicyclists and pedestrians in the United States, spanning 26 miles from Lighthouse Beach Park on the eastern end of the island to Blind Pass Bridge on the western end. In December 2018, the League of American Bicyclists recognized the City of Sanibel with a “gold” Bicycle Friendly Community Award. It is one of only two Florida communities to hold the prestigious designation.
The Shared Use Master Plan was originally implemented in 2009. This ongoing update to the Master Plan will recognize improvements completed over the past decade as well as seek input from residents and visitors on ways to enhance the Path system for the future. This will be done through a series of public meetings, outreach efforts and a survey. We look forward to your participation in the process!
