Sheboygan is very fortunate to be one of only four communities in the United States selected to participate in the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP). This federally-funded program was created to demonstrate how walking and bicycling infrastructure can link community resources and increase rates of walking and bicycling. Sheboygan County received $25 million and has used those funds for 25 projects across the county since 2005. One of the County’s largest projects undertaken through this program is the Taylor Drive Multi-Use Path, which was completed in November 2016. Donohue designed a 2.6-mile path along the City of Sheboygan’s west side.
