I attended the second meeting for the city to discuss the Downtown Toledo Transportation Plan. Preliminary options were laid on the table (literally) to help determine the best way forward in restructuring and designing downtown mobility into the future.
There are some great plans in the making to address bike-friendliness in the Glass City. City planners have conducted studies of traffic flow and determined how and where they can implement change to beautify and the make the various categories of roadways safer for alternative traffic flow.
These plans address four different types of roadways in the downtown area, from arteries like Monroe and Cherry Streets all the way down to "Festival Streets" like Adams. At conclusion of the presentation (Below) we were given dot stickers and had the opportunity to express our opinion on the best of several options for each type.
If you have the opportunity, please review the slides (Link below) that were presented during last night's meeting and plan to attend the next one (April timeframe). It really is encouraging to see the city planning for cycle and pedestrian traffic well into the future.
