General Comments & other areas
26
Bus stops: icy in winter, lack of marked stops, other traffic does not yield to stopped bus, lack of posted routes. Problematic bus stop locations: 1) Broadway (Center to Husson) - no shoulder, many driveways, 2) Union (Vermont to Griffin), 3) Center St across from St Joe's Hospital - person must move out between parked cars to see and fag down bus.
27
Citywide: total disregard for 25mph limit, violating TCD, lack of enforcement, distracted driving (cell phone particularly). Lack of traffic education, coordinated media/marketing campaign needed to raise awareness. "HeadsUp!" signs on buses, etc. Bumper stickers: "Warning, I stop for red lights", "The speed limit is the top speed". Engage student campaign with posters, etc. for use in cabs, tv ads, etc. Campaign should be be positive, upbeat that combines 5 E's.
28
Winter: Downtown snow removal is poor (made worse by private snow crews dumping snow on sidewalks), crosswalks get plowed in. Sidewalks only plowed on 1 side of rd.
29
ADA: City lacks ADA transition plan, lack of "white cane" awareness, lack of auditory crosswalk signals
30
Many "west side village" residents must walk as they don't own car, yet sidewalks here are far worse/lacking compared to wealthier communities where walking is more residential.
31
Citywide: Sidewalks need more maintenance, St lights don't work or not installed, Overhead St Lights are blocked by plant growth, Area between sidewalk and streets have tall sight blocking plant growth
32
Bike Lanes: Cyclists use sidewalks as there is lack of bike lanes citywide, this creates ped safety issues.
33
Downtown: faux-brick painted crosswalks difficult to see
34
Citywide: lack of complete streets policy followed during repair/repaving/etc projects.
35
