Open houses scheduled for Hilltop Mobility Plan
The City of Columbus Division of Transportation is hosting a series of public open houses to acquaint residents with efforts to develop a Hilltop Community Mobility Plan.
In order to create livable communities that are safe and enjoyable for all citizens, whether walking, riding, or driving, a community mobility planning effort was established to determine possible solutions to better balanced transportation infrastructure.
Community mobility planning is a comprehensive approach that looks at all modes of transportation. Specific goals of community mobility planning include: addressing transportation issues from the public; reducing traffic violations; strengthening the connection between land use and transportation; promoting distinct and vibrant neighborhoods; and coordinating with area plans and the Bicentennial Bikeways Plan.
The purpose of the open houses is to gather public comment about traffic problems in the Hilltop area. The public will be able to review exhibits showing the transportation system and traffic data, including the number of vehicle crashes involving pedestrians.
TranSystems, the consultant creating the plan, will be on hand to discuss the study, listen to the public’s comments, and answer questions.
The open houses are scheduled for:
Jan. 28, 4-8 p.m.
Hoge Memorial Presbyterian Church
2930 West Broad St.
Jan. 29, 4-8 p.m.
Crossroads United Methodist Church
1100 South Hague Ave.
In order to be included in the problem identification phase of the study, the public is encouraged to provide comments by Feb. 13. Written comments may be submitted at the meeting, e-mailed, faxed or mailed to the study team. If you will be unable to attend the open house, contact the Hilltop Community Mobility Plan Study Team, TranSystems, 5747 Perimeter Dr., Suite 240, Dublin, Ohio 43017. You can also e-mail HilltopMobility@transystems.com or fax 614-336-8540.
