DESCRIPTION The City has identified the following outcomes of a Sustainable Transportation Planning study:
Build consensus and support from stakeholder groups to achieve the greatest sustainable transportation benefit for the most people.
Define inspiring and measurable goals against which all individual projects can be measured. Measurable goals, for instance, could be to reduce the growth of vehicle use.
Provide neutral expertise (i.e. not from stakeholders) that can challenge our perceived constraints, suggest best practices, share success stories from other comparable small town/rural communities, apply creative problem solving, and achieve consensus on appropriate standards and guidelines for meeting our goals.
Include formal partnerships from other jurisdictions (Bainbridge taxing districts, Kitsap Transit, WSDOT, and WSF) to maximize opportunities for new solutions and support for those solutions.
Communicate a compelling vision and a high-level plan based on these goals and partnerships, with appropriate visualizations, technology enhancements, illustrations, and narrative to tell a story that is accessible to all islanders.
ACTIVITY The City of Bainbridge Island has contracted with Nelson/Nygaard Consulting Associates, a transportation planning firm, to prepare a scope of work for our Sustainable Transportation planning project.
