Walkable Places Milestone Achieved
On June 11, the Walkable Places Committee unanimously approved the proposed Walkable Places Ordinance Framework and the Transit Corridor Ordinance amendments. This was a culmination of two and a half years of work by the Committee that included several meetings and public outreach in the three pilot communities to get feedback from residents and stakeholders on the proposals.
We believe these two regulatory tools will guide developers to create development that is more vibrant and walkable for the public and promotes a safe and comfortable experience for all modes of transportation.
In the coming months, the Planning & Development Department will finalize a public outreach plan for the proposed regulatory tools to collect public input. A public hearing for both items will be held in the fall.
Thank you to the various organizations, stakeholders and individuals who have diligently worked in advancing this initiative.
