A survey of business owners and other stakeholders was conducted to prioritize the goals of the project.

The top priorities were:

  • Safe and non-confrontational environment
  • Encourages new investments from developers with new projects
  • Well-lit walkways
  • A very walkable street along its edges & at street crossings (may create some congestion)
  • Supports social interaction on the street
  • Traffic calmed with minor congestion at peak times but slower overall traffic
  • Business supportive
  • Encourages new investments from existing owners through renovations
  • Celebrates public art/design
  • Dynamic design elements that attracts users throughout the day and night
  • A very bikeable street (may require loss of one—lane of traffic or some parking)

Stakeholder meetings were held to go over constraint and opportunity mapping results, collision data and preliminary solutions.
