The Previous Transportation Plan was adopted on February 12th, 2007 and was revised on March 9th, 2011. The purpose of the Transportation Plan for the Bemidji Growth Area was 1.) to guide road-related investments in the Bemidji Growth Area through 2025; and 2.) frame non-motorized transportation issues and provide a policy direction to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists in the Greater Bemidji Area.
This plan is a companion to the Greater Bemidji Area Land Use Plan. The Transportation Plan supports and compliments the Land Use Plan by framing infrastructure investments by the road jurisdictions in a way that guides development. This Plan was replaced by the 2019 Greater Bemidji Area Comprehensive Plan.
