Transportation Vision

To be a beautiful, livable, vibrant, historic, city between the rivers, bluffs and marsh that is the economic, educational, medical, social, cultural and transportation hub for the region.

In order to protect and enhance our regional economy, quality of life, natural environment, aesthetics, and human connections, with an emphasis on improving safety for everyone; the City envisions changing policies, practices, and physical design to our streets and highways, as well as the allied parking infrastructure within our city limits, and within the region to the extent that it affects our city. A key component of the City’s vision is to reduce our overwhelming and unsustainable dependency on the single occupant vehicle as the primary mode of transportation and prioritize cycling, walking, public and private transit, telecommuting, land use changes, parking changes, and other supportive measures.
