slide22

Why are we going through the process?

  • Create a suitable corridor
  • Identify community values & issues
  • Guarantee the opportunity to participate
  • Share stakeholder viewpoints, visions, and goals
  • Understand the transportation constraints
slide23

What won’t this workshop do?

  • Determine corridor alignment
  • Guarantee everything will happen
  • Accuse or be confrontational
  • Win or Lose
  • Compromise safety
slide24
Goal

To BALANCE:

  • Community values
  • Environmental considerations
  • Safety and capacity
  • Economic realities
slide34

Stakeholder Input

An opportunity to bring YOU, the community stakeholders, into the project study process early:

  • to provide input as individuals and community representatives
  • to identify community issues
  • to share values
  • to determine important elements related to the project
  • to consider what the BALANCE between safety, capacity, community, and environment is fair and practical
slide35

Traffic & Transportation Issues

  • Truck vs. car traffic
  • Destination vs. thru traffic
  • Pedestrian Circulation: safe crossings, bikeways
slide36

Business & Commerce Values

  • Maintain small town image vs. the strip
  • Maintaining good commerce flow-goods, services, people

slide39

The BIG question is…

What is the

BALANCE

between community/corridor and transportation needs?
