Sidewalk and Pathways
The City of Royal Oak is committed to providing non‐motorized sidewalks and pathways to provide alternative modes of transportation for citizens and stakeholders alike. In this effort the City Commission adopted a Non‐Motorized Master Plan. It includes recommendations for pedestrian amenities and safer crossings, and also discusses best practices for bicycle routes and wayfinding to
enhance non‐motorized travel.
The City of Royal Oak has had a long‐standing interest in providing pathways and sidewalks to connect neighborhoods with destinations throughout the City and Region.The Capital Improvement Plan incorporates plans, efforts, and preferences of the Non‐Motorized Plan. The City’s Engineering Division assesses, analyzes, and makes recommendations to fill the nonmotorized gaps throughout the City. A portion of the City’s road millage goes toward financing sidewalk and pedestrian safety projects in the City of Royal Oak.
