Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: INVENTORY AND EVALUATE EXISTING SIDEWALKS: Establish evaluation criteria and scoring system for sidewalks with the input of City Staff and members of the Complete Streets Committee. Scoring shall prioritize needed improvements to sidewalks and trails based on usage, physical condition, and ADA compliance. Using the most recent “Healthy Communities Policy Guide” of the American Planning Association, incorporate health community design concepts and tools into the prioritization methodology. Evaluate up to 750 blocks of trail and/or sidewalks. Evaluate the existing physical conditions of sidewalks/trails for: width of surfacing, obstructions in path of sidewalk or trail, type of surfacing, and sampling of cross slope per block. Determine whether curb ramps exist and evaluate compliance with current ADA standards. Items to be evaluated and recorded include: cross slope, width of travel path, presence of detectable warning panels, direction of ramp/crossing, and presence of obstructions to path. Score each intersection for prioritization of future improvements. Compile data graphically on a GIS system. Provide coded maps identifying relative needed improvements to bring the reviewed system into compliance with ADA and walking standards. IDENTIFY EXISTING AND/OR EXPECTED AREAS OF HIGH PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENT: Utilizing a data-driven GIS method, identify likely high mobility-impaired pedestrian traffic generators (i.e. senior center, medical facilities, schools, etc.). Determine appropriate locations and times for pedestrian counting. Criteria to guide counts include may include: population and employment densities, roadway or intersection characteristics, schools or other key destinations. Collect data from other studies, plans, and reports for evaluating high pedestrian traffic areas. Perform video observation for counting of pedestrian and mobility-impaired pedestrian movements in various areas as identified as likely High Pedestrian Movement Areas. PUBLIC MEETINGS: In partnership with city staff, hold public meetings to present findings and seek input from Low to Moderate Income beneficiaries in determining priorities. Meetings to include: 1 community-wide meeting, 1 focus group (Complete Streets) meeting, and 1-3 outreach meetings with limited mobility clients at nursing homes, senior centers, etc. Additionally, public hearings to receive, review, and adopt the plan will be scheduled with the Planning Commission and City Council.
