To develop a project list for NW in Motion, we needed to use both data-driven analysis and public outreach to assemble a comprehensive needs inventory for the area. We engaged the public through an online comment map as well as in-person events, asking people where they were seeing safety or comfort issues while walking, biking, or using public transit. We also looked at data like where crashes were happening, where transit was getting delayed, and traffic speeds and volumes on neighborhood greenways. This process resulted in a needs inventory of dozens of individual problem spots or corridors. To narrow this down, the team assembled these issues into 20 larger projects falling into three categories: Neighborhood Greenways, Transit Improvements, and Corridor Safety.
