The City of Cascade and the Cascade Mobility Team asked for assistance in identifying top capital improvement projects for increasing connectivity and safety for bicyclists and pedestrians. To that end, New Mobility West hired Vitruvian Planning to lead a public process that would result in prioritized recommendations and implementation strategies. In April 2015, Vitruvian and NMW staff spent three days in Cascade to conduct a workshop that included diagnostic activities and facilitated public meetings.
Working with the community team, NMW and Vitruvian completed a walk audit and street inventory to evaluate the current system and identify issues and opportunities for improving safety and connectivity. The team also held meetings with stakeholders, including a business forum, to understand top needs and challenges. From this process, Vitruvian developed a report that outlines several high priority projects that were identified during the workshop, as well as potential sources for funding.
