City Council Agenda Memo RE: New Sidewalk Priorities
Page 1 of 9
CITY OF CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA
 
PLANNING COMMISSION AGENDA
 
Date: February 8, 2011To: Planning CommissionFrom: Jim Tolbert, AICPRe: Proposed Sidewalk Priorities
Background:
In 1997 the Planning Commission and City Council approved aSidewalk Priority list from which to construct new sidewalks. The starting point forthis list was a compilation of numerous locations collected over time from unsolicitedcitizen requests. Over the past 10 years, approximately one third of the 1997 list hasbeen constructed and support for the outdated remainder is limited.Throughout last year, staff met with various stakeholder groups, the PlanningCommission, and City Council to review a new list of sidewalk priorities. This list hasbeen generated with the intent to provide safe accommodations and promote thehealthy habit of walking to school for our local youth.As opposed to the previous list which essentially just ranked those sidewalks requestedthrough no process, staff is proposing a proactive approach. We suggest a set of priority criteria be developed and these criteria should point to the sidewalks that aremost needed. The priority criteria developed and adjusted after public input are asfollows:
 
Commercial and Residential Connections
 
Connected Streets
 
Functional Roadway Classification
 
Low Income Areas
 
Overlap of School Areas
 
Park Access
 
School Proximity
 
Sidewalk exist on one side of the road
 
Transit Stop AccessThis process led to the list of twenty-five proposed projects that are shown in the tablebelow. These are proposed to be the first set of sidewalks built using the new process.

Discussion:
During last year’s work session review and discussion, the followingquestions were posed:How can low income areas be addressed? Following the work session, the mapof sidewalk priorities was compared to maps that designate the low to moderateincome areas of the City as defined by HUD. It was determined that twelve of the twenty-five priorities will serve those in low to moderate income eligibleareas as well as within the school walking circles. The following locations fallwithin the City’s eligible CDBG areas as shown on the following map:
