Because NW in Motion is meant to be a near-term plan that focuses on a small set of projects in the first five years after adoption, we needed to further prioritize the list that emerged from the Needs Inventory. Using City-adopted policies as our guide, we developed set of criteria including safety, equity, demand, and connectivity to help us create three tiers of project priorities. We also considered feasibility factors, such as how likely the project could be funded or completed in the next five years. The twelve Tier 1 projects are the ones that best meet the criteria and have a high chance of near-term implementation, while the Tier 2 and 3 projects will be considered longer-term needs for the area. Tier 1 projects will also be developed in greater detail in the next phase of NW in Motion.
