Neighborhoods across the City of Louisville face many of the same challenges. Our streets have been built for moving vehicles — with the safety and convenience of people on foot an afterthought. Streets for People proposes the following five concepts as Programs that could replicated citywide as a way to change that.
We want to make the common, shared space of the street inviting and safe for everyone, not just cars.
Streets for People’s mission is to “Transform Louisville’s Streets and Neighborhoods into Vibrant, Active, Inviting Places.” Each of our Program Proposals aims to meet this primary goal.
Our supplementary goals are:
- Traffic Calming – slowing driving speeds and limiting vehicular volume through design
- Park Connectivity – implementing paths and other infrastructure that create an easy, active way to reach public green space
- Pedestrian Prioritization – projects that place the safety and needs of people on foot on-par or above those of vehicular traffic
The table below demonstrates how our Program Proposals align with our organizational goals:
