Subject:

Title

Joint Maple Avenue Corridor Multimodal Transportation and Land

Use Study - Briefing 3 of 3

Body

BACKGROUND SUMMARY:

 

The Town has tasked Kimley-Horn to conduct a multimodal transportation study of the Maple Avenue Corridor.  This study will be coordinated with ongoing land use planning, redevelopment, and rezoning of properties in the Maple Avenue Commercial (MAC) Zone district.  The purpose of this study will be to develop a set of near- and mid-term recommendations along Maple Avenue for all modes of transportation.  Town Council discussed parameters of this study at a work session on November 5, 2018 and approved spending for this project at the January 7, 2019 Town Council meeting.

 

OVERVIEW:

This is the third and final phase of the scope of work for the study includes:

 

Based on the future land use scenario results, Kimley-Horn will present potential multimodal transportation improvements for discussion with Town citizens in a workshop format.

 

The draft list will include:

                     Near-Term Implementation projects that address immediate access and mobility needs of corridor and could be initiated by the Town. These projects would not specifically require redevelopment or any additional right of way. It is envisioned that these projects could be constructed/implemented leveraging Town resources or funds.

                     Mid-Term Implementation Projects: projects that address immediate and mid-term access and mobility needs of the corridor. These projects would likely be implemented with redevelopment along the corridor and could require minimal easements or right of way. It is envisioned that these projects could be constructed/implement leveraging developer resources or funds.

 

SUMMARY/STAFF IMPRESSIONS:

 

The third and final Community Workshop is scheduled for September 4th, 2019 at 7 PM during which Town staff and the consultant will engage with the public to discuss the project and receive public input.
