Now through October 12, citizens are encouraged to review and comment via a brief survey on materials from the recent Complete Streets Open House which includes a series of maps representing a proposed bikeway network and pedestrian improvements, global recommendations on the Complete Streets process, and certain design criteria that are expected to become part of the Complete Streets Implementation Plan. Citizens may also view how the proposed projects would be implemented at current funding levels. Survey comments provided will be considered as the city moves toward finalizing the Complete Streets Implementation Plan later this year. The survey will be available through October 12.
But taking a regular walk is also beneficial for your neighborhood. This basic human instinct—to get out of the house to see what’s going on—is the glue that holds most great communities together. The classic example are the Latin lands where an after-dinner stroll—the passegiata in Italy, the paseo in Spain and Latin America, the volta in Greece—is as much a part of the culture as sunshine or siestas. In towns and even large cities, people amble around the same set of streets each evening. The shops are usually closed so the purpose is not shopping and errands but to connect with their neighbors and enjoy their surroundings.
