Provide your feedback on NOACA's new Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan

Your Input Is Needed!

ACTIVATE is NOACA’s new pedestrian and bicycle plan, currently under development. This plan starts with listening to the needs of the public in Northeast Ohio. Thank you for your time!

The ACTIVATE survey should take around 10 minutes to complete. Respondents will remain anonymous. NOACA staff will use your feedback to ensure that ACTIVATE addresses the issues that affect you. NOACA will be sharing the results of the survey in the plan.

The Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) is the transportation and environmental planning agency that represents state, county, city, village, and township officials in Greater Cleveland. NOACA addresses transportation, air quality, and water quality needs of Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, and Medina counties.
