That's where we're looking for your input. We recently hosted a series of "Roundtable" discussions on six topics: Public Transit; Bicycling, Pedestrians and Health Issues; Transportation for Seniors and Veterans; Transportation for People with Disabilities or Transportation Barriers; Roads and Freight Movement; and Transportation for Young People.
We got a lot of input from the folks who attended those sessions. Some topics that came up at almost every roundtable include:
• Improved snow removal and snow storage options are needed.
• Cuts to public transit have presented challenges to transit users across the board, but particularly to the disabled, elderly, low income and those too young to have drivers’ licenses.
• Sidewalks need improvements such as fixing damaged sidewalks and filling in sidewalks where they don’t exist.
Summaries of the conversation and themes from each of those Roundtables are available on the Horizon 2040 webpage.
We asked the people at those listening sessions to fill out a survey on their transportation priorities for the region, but we want to make sure the results reflects the priorities of the larger public, so now we're asking you to take the survey too. You can take it here.
Please spread the word about the survey. We can’t accurately portray the community’s needs and priorities without their feedback.
