HELP PRIORITIZE BERKELEY’S TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS
Come to Open House on March 16th

Berkeley, California (Thursday, March 03, 2016) - Come out on March 16th and help the City build our transportation strategy, which will prioritize improvements to our streets, sidewalks, bikeways and intersections.

How people move through a community has a powerful impact. The design of a community's transportation systems can strengthen neighborhoods. Better pedestrian spaces can spur economic vitality. Transportation design can help achieve environmental goals, such as reducing greenhouse gases. It can improve social equity by increasing mobility for low-income residents or underprivileged groups. 

Think about your values and your goals for what Berkeley should be, and bring them to our kick-off meeting. 

Berkeley Strategic Transportation Plan
South Berkeley Senior Center, Multi-purpose room
2939 Ellis Street, Berkeley
Wednesday, March 16th, 2016
5:00pm to 8:00pm, drop by any time.
Presentations at 6:00pm and 7pm

To look at transportation comprehensively, we compiled a single list of all the transportation-related projects in the City's adopted plans. That includes the Pedestrian Master Plan, Bicycle Plan, and plans for different areas of town. 

We then grouped every proposed transportation project geographically as well as by theme, such as for bicycle or pedestrian crossings. This allows us to compare, for example, one corridor's set of improvements to another.

We have already begun to evaluate these improvements to the City's infrastructure, including roads, sidewalks and intersections. Now, we need your help figuring out how to prioritize each project based on these criteria: 

  • Mobility and access for all modes of transportation
  • Transportation safety
  • Access to commercial districts
  • Transportation choices for diverse communities
  • Environmental sustainability and resiliency

Let us know what's most important to you.

With your input, we can evaluate and prioritize those projects that address these essential needs. Plans are the critical first step, helping establish goals and a vision. To implement them, many projects require environmental review, public processes, council approval or outside funding. Once plans are complete, we can move forward to fund, design, and construct new transportation improvements that benefit our whole community.
