Take the Poll: Pick Three Projects for State Funding in 2018-2021

Our MPO meets on Tuesday next week, and the agenda gives us the first look at area candidate projects for the 2018-2021 Statewide "Enhance Non-Highway" funds.

Later this week we'll come back around to the meeting agenda in more detail, but for the moment, let's take a brief look at the candidate projects. The goal for the meeting will be to craft a priority list to advance on to the next round of assessment. Committee members will be asked to vote for their top three projects.

So let's do the same!

If you want to be strict about the criteria, you can read it in the meeting packet here. But for our purposes I think it's more interesting just to ask outright, without hedging or otherwise qualifying or analyzing things, what three projects seem most important to you?

I'll present a very brief description of each, and at the end will be a poll. Pick three only!
  • 45th Avenue Sidewalks and Bike Lanes (County)
  • Brooklake Road Sidewalks and Bike Lanes (County)
  • Two Replacement Commuter Buses (Cherriots)
  • Planning for Eastbank Trail (Salem)
  • Hayesville Drive Sidewalks and Bike Lanes (County)
  • Claggett Creek Path from Hyacinth to Kroc Center (Salem)
  • Five Crossing Safety Projects, including two key Winter-Maple Bikeway crossings (Salem)
  • Eastern portion of Union Street Bikeway (Salem)
