Residents of Steubenville (and nearby friends),

The Health Department received a grant from the Ohio Department of Health to partner with the City of Steubenville for Active Transportation Planning.
What is Active Transportation? Active transportation is human-powered transportation that engages people in healthy physical activity while they travel from place to place. People walking, bicycling, using strollers, wheelchairs, skateboarding and rollerblading are engaging in active transportation.

Not interested in a survey? Don’t worry, there will be other opportunities in the near future to have your voice heard. If you want to be more involved with the planning process, please email [email protected]
