Since 2002, Naples Pathways Coalition has been advocating for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and vulnerable road users. We worked with community members and elected officials to develop the City of Naples Pedestrian & Bicycle Plan as well as Collier County’s Comprehensive Pathways Plan.

As work continues with the Paradise Coast Trail, organizers are excited that this project will expand transportation options, improve community health and boost the economy. They are also looking for ways to engage more walkers, runners and families in enjoying our greenspace.

Naples Pathways Coalition board members would like your help. Please take a few short minutes to complete this survey to share your thoughts about the need for walker and cyclist safety in Collier County.

“Individuals and families are flocking to our community for opportunities to enjoy the outdoors safely. With the Paradise Coast Trail initiative, we hope to support the ongoing health and economic vitality of our community,” said Michelle Avola, Executive Director.
