Heights Mobility Study Public Workshop – Developing Performance Measures and Design Concept AlternativesApril 30, 2018
Safety and Mobility Improvements
- Identify opportunities for short term safety and mobility enhancements that could be implemented right away.
- Develop a clear understanding of existing community character and identify mobility strategies to support existing community needs.
- Build a consensus around a Mission, Vision, and Goals for the Florida Avenue and Tampa Street corridor.
- The Study will use the community’s vision to develop a conceptual transportation plan for the corridor.
- Depending on the community vision, future Study phases may include engineering design and ultimately include a construction project.
We invite you to get involved! The community plays an important role in the project development and decision-making process of this study. We want to hear from you about the concerns, issues, comments, and ideas that you have in order to help us identify safety and mobility improvements within the corridor and to help us define a future vision for the corridor.
