Our Task

To develop a citywide multi-modal transportation plan that improves and expands opportunities for pedestrians, bicycles and transit users.  The plan was driven by a blend of public involvement and evidence based solutions.  Well over 400 people completed an on-line survey.  The analysis of the existing conditions included a relative demand model that incorporates measurements of population density, land use diversity, activity generators, transit activity, connectivity and employment centers.  The final report provided policy and program recommendations, physical environment recommendations, specific area concept plans and a network implementation plan.
