So I asked Julie Warncke, Transportation Planning Manager, "what's up?" and she sends this news brief and an announcement about small groups for the Bike and Walk Plan Update:
The Spanish survey is the reason that we extended the overall survey through the end of the year. Our schedule has slipped some - the consultants are wrapping up needs assessment and we plan to have a meeting of the advisory committee in January and hold public workshops in late January.If you fall into one of these interest/user groups and would like to attend, please RSVP to the Transportation Planning Manager.
In addition to working with the data, we did school walking audits for 5 schools (4 elementary and 1 middle).
Our consultants also conducted 4 listening stations on a Saturday before Thanksgiving (Kroc Center, M&S Sales, Lancaster Mall, Salem Center).
We have also scheduled some small group meetings for this Wednesday, 12/15.
- Downtown Interests (including Willamette U. and Capitol Mall area); 8-9 AM OR Noon to 1PM (both will be held - so people only need to go to one or the other, not both); Location: Broadway Commons, Room 303 (Africa Room)
- Public Transportation Dependent [for folks who only use transit]; 10 to 11AM; Location: Broadway Commons, Room 303 (Africa Room)
- Youth Voices; 3:30 to 4:30 PM, Broadway Commons, Room 303 (Africa Room).
