Lake Street Pedestrian Streetscape and Stormwater Feasibility Study

10 MB
Year:
2020
Theme:
Bike/Ped, Bike/Pedestrian, Stormwater
Description:
Lake Street in Burlington is a shared use street that connects the City core to the northern waterfront. There are two mid-block pedestrian crossings on this segment. The road is landscaped with street trees and granite blocks. Stormwater runoff sheet flows across the road from east to west. Runoff from nearby properties drains over Lake Street at the driveway intersections. Most of the stormwater sheet flows into small swales or ponds in the nearest low spot. The City with funding from the CCRPC studied possible pedestrian, streetscape and stormwater improvements for Lake Street in the project area.

CarShare Vermont Urban Boomer Outreach Campaign Final Report

56.8 kB
Year:
2018
Theme:
Transportation Demand Management
Description:
Historically, carsharing programs across the country have primarily served a younger demographic (people aged 18-45). However, recent research has indicated that Baby Boomers are increasingly relocating to urban areas that offer increased mobility options. As they enjoy a more active, multimodal lifestyle, many are choosing to reduce their vehicle ownership. We wanted to understand if this trend is consistent in Chittenden County, and whether this growing demographic is ripe for carsharing. Our goals for this project were to conduct market research, conduct outreach in collaboration with partners, and increase membership among the population aged 51-69.
