First, we'll ask you some questions about different segments of the Link. Feel free to answer these as we go through the presentation.
The questions provided are intended as prompts to get you thinking. Feel free to be as detailed as you like, ask questions, share concerns, etc. There are no wrong opinions!

We suggest opening the meeting slides in another window as you complete your feedback, for easy reference.
1. How would you like to see the Mandela Parkway Gateway segment take shape?
You might consider:

  2. Is this a place to tell an important history or story?
  3. How can the trail accommodate safety and equity for all multi-modal users on this segment of the trail?
  4. What are things you like about Mandela Parkway and how can this connect to them?
