Freedom Mobility Plan Presentation
Michael Hildebrand, Executive Director, Upstate Alliance
Matthew Rehnborg, Transit Planner, Greenlink
Q & A
Q: Why not evaluate every neighborhood that has an existing shape file?
A: Greenlink has an established relationship with the Nicholtown neighborhood leadership which is active in addressing infrastructure components. Nicholtown also has a historical record of community engagement and activities. The committee wanted to use time and resources wisely to produce a successful demonstration.
Q: Do you see using this as part of a governmental approval process for projects in new and existing neighborhoods?
A: Hopefully in the future a system can be developed that is beneficial to municipalities and counties. The UMA’s Active and Livable Task Force is currently working on a short trip survey (two miles or less) to determine how community members they take short trips and how these trips may be improved.
Chat comment: Proximity to schools could enhance opportunities.
