JANUARY 17, 2018 - In This Issue:
The time has arrived - the Corrine Drive design concepts are ready for your review and feedback!

The Design Concepts

There are several ways we can improve the Corrine Drive experience for people of all ages and abilities. We're offering three overall looks for Corrine Drive, and each has a variation:
  • 5-Lane Concept
  • 5-Lane Concept Variation
  • 3-Lane Concept
  • 3-Lane Concept Variation
  • Hybrid Concept
  • Hybrid Concept Variation
Keep in mind that these concepts are all possibilities. None of these concepts has been chosen yet. After gathering your opinions, the project team will review the public feedback and weigh that with technical considerations. These will be blended to create a plan for Corrine Drive. It's possible that features from different concepts may be combined when the draft plan is created.

How to Provide Feedback

To help you see and rate these concepts, we're using an online communications platform called Neighborland. MetroPlan Orlando has created a space on Neighborland.com for the concept drawings, descriptions, and data about each idea. You can go through the information about each concept and provide feedback (including location-specific notes), then tell us which design concept is your favorite.

The design concepts will be available for input online through March 16. In order to comment on the designs and vote for a favorite, you'll be asked to create a log-in. You can log in through Facebook, Twitter, Google, or email. Once your log-in is created, you can study the concepts at your leisure. You won't need to go through everything in one sitting.

Proposed Safety Solutions

In addition to the design concepts, we have posted seven proposed safety solutions on Neighborland. These were developed in response to locations with safety issues that the community helped identify earlier in the study. These items can be implemented with any design concept that moves forward.

For each of the safety solutions, you can see a rendering and a description of the proposal, make comments and say whether you think the idea should be implemented.

Each of the safety proposals stands on its own, so it's possible that all or just a few will make it into the final plan for Corrine Drive.

If you're new to the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study, make sure you read up on the study background on the Neighborland site.

If you want to read more details about the design concepts and how they were developed, check out the page of Frequently Asked Questions and the technical report.

If you have neighbors who don't have internet access and would like to request a paper copy of the design concepts, call 407-481-5672, ext. 305.

For the next two months, Neighborland will be the hub of the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study. There is a lot of information there, so take your time. We are counting on your thoughtful feedback to help us narrow down the elements we should include in the final design proposal this summer. Thanks for staying in touch with the study.

More information about the study is available at CorrineDriveStudy.org

We really want folks to view and comment on the design concepts through the Neighborland online forum, but that may not suit everyone.
So we're setting up opportunities to talk to MetroPlan Orlando staff and additional ways to see the designs. We want as much feedback as possible by March 16, so please let us hear from you.

We've scheduled five Corrine Pop-Up Meetings, for people to stop by and talk. We'll be happy to chat with people about using the Neighborland online platform, answer questions, and even provide electronic tablets where people can log on to Neighborland. We won't be making formal presentations at these Pop-Ups, because we want the comprehensive presentation on Neighborland to do most of the talking.

Here's a schedule of the Corrine Pop-Up Meetings:
*  Monday, Jan. 22 - Audubon Park Community Market, 5-9 p.m.
*  Friday, Feb. 2 - Baldwin Park First Friday Festival, 5:30-9:30 p.m.
*  Saturday, Feb. 24 - Leu Gardens, 1-3 p.m.
*  Saturday, Mar. 3 - East End Market / Audubon Park Garden District Eat Local Stroll,
2-5 p.m.
* Thursday, Mar. 8 - Redlight Redlight, 5-8 p.m.

Some people may want to view the concepts without logging into Neighborland, and there are ways to do that as well. The content on Neighborland.com can be viewed without logging in, but only those who create a log-in can comment there. We've also posted the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Technical Report - containing the design concepts, study data, and descriptions of the process - at CorrineDriveStudy.org for viewing.

 For people who prefer not to access the designs on the internet, we can provide printed copies. Contact us at: 407-481-5672, ext. 305.


This study uses MetroPlan Orlando's draft Complete Streets policy to showcase how such approaches can shape a corridor. Using technical work, data analysis, and public involvement, it will suggest improvements to make the road accessible for all users. The Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study will continue through the summer of 2018.
The study is an independent analysis directed by MetroPlan Orlando staff and financed with internal planning funds, using federal and local government money. We are allocated federal funds from the U.S. Department of Transportation each year to conduct activities, such as Complete Streets studies. We also receive funds from county and municipal governments in the region, which pay for activities not covered by federal funding. The study receives no money from private individuals or organizations.
