Transportation Master Plan

The City is developing its first Transportation Master Plan. The Transportation Master Plan will 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 Transportation Master Plan will 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. Concurrent with the Transportation Master Plan, a Transportation Impact Fee program update would provide a mechanism to modernize the City’s fee program to collect funds towards construction of the improvements expected to be identified and prioritized in the Master Plan.

The Transportation Master Plan, 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.

A consultant team was hired in May 2017 to prepare the Transportation Master Plan and update the Transportation Impact Fee program. An online open house and survey was conducted to gather input from the community about how the City should prioritize transportation improvements in summer 2017. 

Current status

The second round of community engagement for the City’s Transportation Master Plan has come to a successful close. We had over 1,200 participants in the online open house and pop-up events, and we greatly appreciate the feedback! Currently, staff and the consultant team are compiling the responses and reviewing the feedback. The results will be shared in the next few months.

The website for the online open house is still open to view for informational purposes. While the comment section is closed, all of the background data, project map, and other helpful resources are still accessible.
