Alta worked with the City of Appleton and neighboring municipal and regional partners to see that the trail system connects to the Fox Valley, improving safety and accessibility for all trail users, supporting economic development, and improving quality of life for Appleton area residents.

The Trails Master Plan for Appleton provides a framework for future investments in multimodal facilities, with a focus on improving connectivity to local destinations. Alta identified connections and used a data-driven prioritization process to guide investment in modernization and to establish an ongoing maintenance program for the network. The plan provides the city with a fiscally-sustainable trail system, developed a preliminary model to help the city forecast long-term funding needs, and to identified additional funding sources for construction and maintenance.
