Transportation Master Plan

Project overview
The City is kicking off efforts to develop its first Transportation Master Plan (TMP).The TMP would provide the ability to identify appropriate projects to enhance the transportation network, conduct community engagement to ensure such projects meet the communities’ goals and values, and prioritize projects based on need for implementation. The TMP, when completed, would provide a detailed vision, set goals and performance metrics for network performance, and outline an implementation strategy for both improvements to be implemented locally and for local contributions towards regional improvements. It will serve as an update to the City’s Bicycle and Sidewalk Plans. Following development of the Master Plan, the TIF program update would provide a mechanism to modernize the City’s fee program to collect funds towards construction of the improvements identified and prioritized in the Master Plan.

The TMP, however, is not designed to identify specific solutions to individual neighborhood cut-through traffic concerns, specific Safe Routes to School infrastructure plans, or provide detailed engineering designs of the improvements that will be identified in the Plan. These efforts would be prioritized in the Plan for future work efforts and through current projects such as Willows Neighborhood Complete Streets.
