Pathways and Trails

The City owns and maintains approximately 91 miles of pathways which includes trails, sidewalks and off road paths.  See the Pathways map for locations.

Pathway Master Plan Update 2021


The City is looking to update its pathway master plan this summer by adding or removing additional segments. A presentation was made on April 27, 2021, to the Public Work Environment and Transportation Commission about possible changes. Staff will hold a second meeting with the commission on July 27, 2021, to discuss this topic in more detail and to give the public the opportunity to provide input.  If you have questions or comments, please contact Jesse Freihammer, Assistant Public Works Director/City Engineer, Jesse.freihammer@cityofroseville.com, 651-792-7042. Later this summer, changes to the pathway master plan will be presented to the City Council for consideration and adoption. 

Proposed Segments


Proposed Eustis Segment
Proposed Fairview Segment
Proposed Marion Segment
Proposed Tamarack Segment
Proposed Snelling Service Dr Segment
Proposed Lydia Segment

With the exception of the Tamarack Segment, none of the proposed segments have funding identified or any scheduled construction timeline. However, as the Pathway Master Plan is a planning document and helps staff work towards longer term projects, it is helpful to add these segments to the Master Plan so as development and/or funding opportunities occur, staff can move quicker to construct these pathway segments.

Exhibits


The Pathway Master Plan is adopted by reference in the city's Comprehensive Plan and serves as a planning tool to assist the City Council on decisions regarding pathway issues.

Pathway Master Plan


The Pathway Master Plan Map depicts the city’s existing pathway system and the proposed pathway connections.  The Public Works, Environment and Transportation Commission recently updated the City of Roseville Pathway Master Plan.  The City Council approved the Final Plan on October 8, 2018.  This plan was first adopted by the City Council in 1997 with updates in 2001, 2002 and 2008.  The purpose of the Pathway Master Plan is to provide a set of guidelines for the development of the community's pathway network.
