    Freedom Mobility Plan Presentation

    Michael Hildebrand, Executive Director, Upstate Alliance

    Matthew Rehnborg, Transit Planner, Greenlink

    Q & A

    Q: Why not evaluate every neighborhood that has an existing shape file?

    A: Greenlink has an established relationship with the Nicholtown neighborhood leadership which is active in addressing infrastructure components. Nicholtown also has a historical record of community engagement and activities. The committee wanted to use time and resources wisely to produce a successful demonstration.

    Q: Do you see using this as part of a governmental approval process for projects in new and existing neighborhoods?

    A: Hopefully in the future a system can be developed that is beneficial to municipalities and counties. The UMA’s Active and Livable Task Force is currently working on a short trip survey (two miles or less) to determine how community members they take short trips and how these trips may be improved.

    Chat comment: Proximity to schools could enhance opportunities.
