The plan was advertised/circulated for comment in January and presented at 2 public meetings. It was updated based on comments. Significant changes include:
The Plan recommends actions for the city to become more pedestrian-friendly and prioritizes over $21 million of sidewalk, ADA ramp, and crosswalk improvements in the city's highest pedestrian demand areas. These include areas around schools, bus routes, parks, and intensive care/at risk neighborhoods. 18 geographic focus areas, including 13 neighborhoods and 5 corridors, were inventoried for improvements. The process has included 2 community forums, 4 meetings with a stakeholder committee, nearly 600 citizen survey responses, and 15 meetings with separate neighborhood groups.
