This analysis aims to identify areas where pedestrian and bicycle improvements will likely have the highest impact on the largest number of existing and potential users.
Between April 12, 2012 and May 31, 2012 we sought input on whether land use, safety, street network density or social equity is more important to prioritizing bicycle and pedestrian system improvements. We received over 90 responses to our survey on the Suitability Mapping.
The Suitability Analysis map shows the combined weighted scoring of land use, street network, safety and social equity evaluation factors.
The respondents weighted the factors as follows:
From this analysis a list of high priority needs will be generated by applying the weighted score to missing links in the bicycle and pedestrian systems. A high score is indicative of areas that may be more supportive of bicycle and pedestrian improvements in terms of the four evaluation factors noted above and as shown below.
