The Planning and Economic Development Department seeks your local perspective and wisdom. We are planning improvements to the City’s pedestrian and bicycle network. From March – September 2021 the newly formed Pedestrian & Bicycle Network Assessment Working Group (PBNA) is tasked with conducting street audits. Members of the PBNA and the public will assess connections between the City’s commercial nodes and parks. Through a series of mapping exercises PBNA members will visit designated routes and assess existing conditions, identify needed improvements, and evaluate travel behaviors of pedestrians and bicyclist. All feedback will be used to identify and prioritize tactical improvements and programming.
Based upon community feedback, staff is investigating ways to design streets, trails and pathways from the perspective of pedestrians and cyclists, as well as motorists. Focusing on:
- Improving public safety;
- Minimizing pedestrian/ cyclist and motorist friction points;
- Calming speed along straightaways and at intersections;
- Improving the local transportation network;
- Creating intuitive navigational and design systems suitable for all users,
We remain mindful of the accommodations needed for those who commute to and from the City.
