Building Better Connections with Transportation Alternatives
We want to provide transportation options to where you live, play, work and shop.
One option currently being explored is
Bus Rapid Transit (often abbreviated as BRT).
A Bus Rapid Transit corridor is one way the City can expand its current bus service to include a quick and reliable, high-frequency bus route to some of the City’s most popular destinations. This service could help reduce traffic congestion, air pollution associated with vehicle exhaust, and helps ensure all of our residents can access employment centers. The transportation consulting team is being led by

Map Your Week!
Where do you travel in a typical week? The City explored ways to improve this commute with Bus Rapid Transit
(often abbreviated as BRT). A Bus Rapid Transit corridor is one way the City can expand its current bus service
to include a quick and reliable, high-frequency bus route to efficiently move people to and from work, shopping
destinations, and home. Participants were asked to plot their typical weekly travel on an interactive map, so
planners and consultants could learn know more about the most popular City destinations.

Local Plan Needs Local Input
The Kick-off meeting will be our
first effort at directly engaging City residents in a conversation about housing
and transportation. Together with our consultants, we will be looking for input
about issues and concerns regarding how our city should plan for housing and transportation
To get feedback from everyone about these issues, the meeting will be divided into
three parts. The first 30 minutes will introduce the project and consultants. The
last hour of the meeting will be spent meeting with the consultants as smaller groups,
looking at maps and images, and discussing current opportunities and issues.
What concerns do you have regarding housing? What issues and needs do you see in
your neighborhood and within the City? These are the types of housing-related questions
you can expect to be asked during this meeting. The goal of asking these questions
is to create an accurate picture of where we are now, and where we want to go in
terms of housing within the City.
The transportation consultant team will be asking a similar, but different set of
questions. In this session, participants will be discussing ways to connect people
in different areas of the city with jobs. The transportation team wants to know
which roads and corridors might be used for a new Bus Rapid Transportation system.
A Bus Rapid Transportation system (often abbreviated as BRT) is one way the City
can expand its current bus service to include a quick and reliable, high-frequency
bus route to efficiently move people to and from work and home. The goal of this
meeting session will be to get a better understanding of transportation options,
needs, and concerns from both a city-wide and neighborhood point of view.
