How were the projects chosen?

In 2015, City Council adopted the Neighborhood Greenway Assessment Report. The report includes operating guidelines for neighborhood greenways, specifically the amount of traffic and overall speeds. 

In 2020, the Fixing Our Street program included $2.5m to help retrofit existing greenways to lower traffic speeds and volumes and create safer, more comfortable places to walk, bike, and roll. Staff identified neighborhood greenway corridors needing updates based on existing infrastructure and traffic data. The corridors are listed in the section above.

Will my street be considered?
