>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WOULD LIKE TO CALL THE MONDAY

[1. Call to Order]

FEBRUARY 11 MEETING TO ORDER. MS. THRESS, CAN YOU PLEASE CALL THE ROLL?

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: HERE. WILL EVERYONE PLEASE RISE FOR THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG? NOT RECEIVED ANY VISITOR CARDS. SO AT THIS POINT I'M GOING TO

[5.A. Ohio State University Airport Executive Summary: Dr. John Horack, Senior Associate Dean of the College of Engineering, will be present to discuss activities associated with OSU's airport, including the Master Planning process.]

START WITH THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY REPORT WITH DR. JOHN HORNACK. AND LET MR. GREESON DO

ADDITIONAL INTRODUCTIONS. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL, THIS IS THE COMMUNITY OF THE WHOLE MEETING.

WE GET UPDATES ONLY VARIOUS ISSUES AND HAVE UPDATES ABOUT IMPORTANT TOPICS. I'M POLICED TO INTRODUCE DR. HORACK. THE SENIOR ASSOCIATE DEAN FOR THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING. A LITTLE BIT OF INTRODUCTION FOR HIM. SINCE I THINK HE'S NEW TO YOU.

HE'S THE NEAL ARMSTRONG CHAIR AND AEROSPACE POLICY, A JOINT APPOINTMENT BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL AND AEROSPACE AND JOHN GLENN AFFAIRS.

HE'S THE SENIOR DEAN FOR THE COLLEGE.

HE'S ABLING FILLING IN FOR DEAN WILLIAMS WHO IS UNABLE TO BE HERE TO GIVE US UPDATES. INCLUDING THE MASTER PLAN PROCESS. THANK YOU, DR.

>> I APPRECIATE THE HONOR AND INVITATION TO BE HERE.

I'M SORRY I CAN'T DELIVER IT WITH THE SAME ISTINGUISHED ENGLISH ACCENT. REFER TO ME AS JOHN.

ONLY MY MOTHER NEEDS TO CALL MY DR. HORACK.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE BEEN OUT TO DON SCOTT FIELD RECENTLY, YOU WILL SEE THE INVESTMENTS ARE COMING TO FRUITION.

AS WE WORK HARD IN COLLABORATION WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING CITY OF WORTHINGTON, TO CREATE WHAT IS THE WORLD'S PREMIER AEROSPACE CAMPUS. SO I STUDENTS, FACULTY AND STAFF CAN CREATE THE RESEARCH ACTIVITIES THAT BRING FORWARD THE LINKS IN THE VALUED CHAIN OF PROSPERITY.

YOU WILL SEE IF YOU HAPPEN TO DRIVE BY, A NEW TERMINAL THAT HAS BEEN BUILT, IN PART, LARGE PART THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF THE NOLTEN FOUNDATION, THEY PROVIDED A $10,000,000 GIFT.

WE'RE AKING SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS INTO THE RESEARCH CENTER, WHICH YOU SEE FURTHER TO THE WEST OF THAT TERMINAL.

WE'RE EXPECTING TO PERFORM ABOUT $5,000,000 WORTH OF RESEARCH ACTIVITIES, THE RELIABILITY OF TURBAN ENGINES.

HOW ENGINE BL BLADES WEAR. YOU SAW THE SOUTHWEST AIRLINES FLIGHT WHERE THE ENGINE CAME APART AND THE PILOT WAS EXCEEDINGLY SKILLED IN BRINGING THE AIRPLANE DOWN SAFELY.

WE'RE PERFORMING RESEARCH HOW THE ENGINE MALFUNCTIONS CAN OCCUR AND BE PREVENTED, AS WELL AS TO TRAIN FUTURE PILOTS WHO WILL CARRY US SAFELY THROUGH THE SKIES.

PERHAPS YOU HEARD WE'RE EXPECTING A SHORTAGE OF PILOTS RELATIVE TO AIR TRAFFIC. THAT WILL BE AT COLUMBUS JOHN GLENN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. WE NEED TO TRAIN PILOTS TO SAFELY FLY US AND CARGO AND PRESENTATIONISH GRANDCHILDREN AND CHILDREN THROUGH THE SKY. I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU TO KSOU AND SEE THE FACILITY. YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AS A STAKEHOLDER. WE CAN PROVIDE MORE DETAILS ON TIME AND SCHEDULE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PARTICULAR DATES, WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO DO THAT.

DOUG HAMMOND IS MY COLLEAGUE WHO RUNS THE PHYSICAL ASSETS AT DON SCOTT. HE WAS THE AIRPORT EXECUTIVE OF

[00:05:01]

THE YEAR FOR 2018, CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU.

>> THANK YOU, JOHN AND THANK YOU TO COUNCIL.

HAVE MET WITH SOME OF YOU HERE RECENTLY.

WITH MATT AND ROBYN. AND WE REALLY DO APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS THAT YOUR STAFF IS PUTTING INTO THE AIRPORT MASTER PLAN UPDATE, HAVING ROBYN ON OUR ADVISORY BOARD.

WE STARTED ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO.

IT'S A PRETTY DETAILED PROCESS. I'M LOOKING AT, LIKE ANY MASTER PLAN, LOOKING AT WHERE WE WHERE, WHAT EXPECT THE AIRPORT DEMAND, THE AIRCRAFT, THE ILOTS AND HOW DO WE ADDRESS THE DEMANDLY SAFELY, ECONOMICALLY IN A AY THAT IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE SOUNDING COMMUNITY. THOSE ARE WHAT WE'RE LOOKING IN HOW WE DEVELOP THE MASTER PLAN AND ULTIMATELY TAKE IT OUT TO THE PUBLIC AND FAA. WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THOSE ALTERNATIVES, THOSE REQUIREMENTS.

WE ARE NOW STARTING TO FINALIZE WHAT WE WOULD LIKE O TAKE FORWARD. WE DID HAVE OUR FIRST PUBLIC WORKSHOP TO INTRODUCE THE COMMUNITY TO THE PLAN, WHAT IT IS AND HOW WE MOVE THROUGH. THE LAST PUBLIC WORKSHOP ON MARCH 12 IN THE EVENING. THAT WILL BE IN THE NEW NOLETEN FLIGHT CENTER. WE INVITE THE COMMUNITY TO COME AND LISTEN TO A PRESENTATION. WALK AROUND THROUGH THE PUBLIC WORKSHOP TO TALK TO THE CONSULTANTS AND STAFF AND UNDERSTAND THE ELEMENTS THROUGH THERE PLAN.

AFTER THAT, WE WILL BE ONCE AGAIN BRINGING THE TECH BACK TOGETHER, FINALIZING THE DOCUMENT WE CAN SUBMIT TO THE FAA, THEY WILL TAKE THEIR TIME TO REVIEW IT.

I CAN'T TELL YOU WHAT THE TIMING IS.

ONCE IT IS REVIEWED BY THE FAA FOR TECHNICAL MERIT, WE'LL TAKE IT TO THE UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION FOR ADOPTION.

THAT IN ITSELF WILL HAVE EXPENSIVE PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCESS IN TERMS OF MEETINGS AND PUBLIC COMMENT.

THERE IS STILL NUMEROUS TIMES FOR THE PUBLIC TO HEAR ABOUT THE PLAN AND TO GIVE COMMENTS ABOUT THE PLAN.

AND THAT WILL ALL BE WRAPPED UP IN THE FINAL DOCUMENT WE THEN SEND TO THE FAA WITH THE COMMENTS AND ANSWERS WE RECEIVE. THAT'S WHERE WE ARE.

AND ALSO THE DAY OF THE 12, WE'RE HAVING AN OPEN HOUSE FOR THE TERMINAL BUILDING FROM 3-5 IN THE AFTERNOON.

REALLY INFORMAL. JUST AN OPEN HOUSE.

PEOPLE TO COME AND LEARN, SEE THE BUILDING, LEARN A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT WE DO FROM THE TERMINAL, PASSENGER AND SEE HOW TO USE THE SIMULATORS. WE'RE BUILDING THIS AS AN

ACADEMIC OUTREACH FACILITY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHAT TIME WILL THE PUBLIC MEETING BE?

>> 6-8. IF THEY ARE OUT THERE FOR THE OPEN HOUSE, WE'RE NOT GOING TO KICK THEM OUT AND HAVE THEM COME BACK. THEY CAN BY OUT THERE PRETTY MUCH ALL DAY IF THEY WANT TO. SO REALLY WE'LL TH WE'LL BE THERE FROM 3-8:00 FOR PEOPLE TO COME AND LEARN.

>> I CERTAINLY SUPPORT YOUR EDUCATIONAL MISSION.

I ASSUME EVERYONE UP HERE DOES. MY FIRST QUESTION WOULD BE WHICH EDUCATIONAL CAPABILITIES DEPEND UPON THE RUN WAY

EXTENSION, IF ANY? >> THAT'S A VERY INDIRECT QUESTION. BUT THE WAY I CAN ANSWER IS THAT WE HAVE MULTIPLE COLLEGES AND STUDENTS FROM MANY, MANY DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OUT THERE WORKING.

THE EXTENSION OF THE RUN WAY IS AN EXTENSION OF THE CAPABILITY OF THE AIRPORT. WE'RE NOT LOOKING TO EXTEND PASSENGER SERVICE OR ANYTHING. BUT WE N NEED THE ABILITY TO FLY MORE SAFELY AND UNDERSTAND HOW STUDENTS CAN BUILD FLIGHT PLANS AND DESIGN AIRPORT APPROACHES THAT ARE SAFE AND CONSISTENT WITH THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY SO THAT WE CAN ALSO EXPAND THE CAPABILITY OF THE AIRPORTS SO WE CAN HAVE FURTHER DISTANCE. BASICALLY THE LONGER RUN WAY IS NOT O YOU CAN LAND BUT TAKE OFF.

SO WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXTEND THE OUTREACH OF KOSU.

[00:10:02]

NOLTON SCHOOL OF ARCHITECT, THE CENTER FOR AVIATION STUDIES, OTHER PIECES OF THE UNIVERSITY WITHIN FOR EXAMPLE GEOGRAPHY WHERE WE ALSO GIVE -- WE DON'T GIVE, THEY EARN DEG DEGREES IN AVIATION. I WOULD HAVE TO GO BACK AND DO A DETAILED ANALYSIS BUT THAT AN GIVE YOU A FLAVOR OF WHERE WE'RE AT. DOUG?

>> RIGHT. REALLY WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO AND I'LL TALK FROM THE AIRPORT PERSPECTIVE AND HOW WE REALLY GIVE THE STUDENTS, WE'RE A LEARNING LABORATORY.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, PART OF THE UNIVERSITY, OUR MISSION IS TO FIRST AND FOREMOST SERVE THE UNIVERSITY MISSION.

TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE THE EXTENSIVE AND COMPREHENSIVE AIRPORT EDUCATION THAT A LOT OF OUR STUDENTS ARE LOOKING FOR WE NEED TO PROVIDE T THEM WITH A RELEVANT AIRPORT.

THEY ARE GOING TO BE W WORKING AT JOHN GLENN AND THE BIGGER AIRPORTS. THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND THERE IS A FULL RANGE OF SERVICES AND NEEDS AT N AIRPORT.

ONE WE CAN BE COMPREHENSIVE, WE CAN PROVIDE THE COMPREHENSIVE EDUCATION THAT THEY ARE EINQUIRE.

>> YOU HAVE ANY BRANCH FACILITIES OR PROGRAMS AT JOHN GLENN OR OTHER BONA FIDE COMMERCIAL AIRPORTS? I'M WONDERING IF YOU COULD EDUCATE YOUR STUDENTS IN THOSE CAPABILITIESIDES OF THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF HERE.

>> WE HAVE O AEROSPACE CAMPUS, KOSU.

WE HAVE STUDENTS THAT PERFORM INTERNSHIP AT NET JETS, FOR EXAMPLE HOW THEY SCHEDULE AIRPLANE OPERATIONS OR ENHANCE REVENUE OR THINGS LIKE THAT. WE HAVE ONE ND ONLY ONE AEROSPACE AND AVIATION CAMPUS, INTO A SINGLE PLACE SO THAT LEARNING CAN BE SHARED AND THE VEILIANCE BETWEEN THE DISCIPLINES COME TOGETHER IN A SINGLE COHERENT LOCATION.

>> D. SMITH: CAN YOU GIVE A DESCRIPTION OR QUANTIFIABLE ANSWER AS TO HAT THE RUNWAY EXTENSION WILL MEAN IN TERMS OF OF THE EXPERIENCE OF THE WORTHINGTON RESIDENT IN THEIR BACKYARD, HOW MUCH LOUDER OR FREQUENTLY? CAN YOU GIVE A STATEMENT THAT WILL ENABLE ME TO SPEAK TO MY CONSTITUENTS IN WHAT THEY CAN EXPECT?

>> WE LOOKED AT THE NOISE STUDY, NOT ONLY THE DEMAND FOR THE FACILITY OF THAT IZE, AND AT THAT TIME IT'S BEEN KIND OF SUPPORTED OUT OF THIS NEW MASTER PLAN, THERE IS NOT A LOT OF INCREASED, MAYBE 10% INCREASE IN TOTAL TRAFFIC BECAUSE OF THE ABILITY OF THAT RUNWAY. THE ONE THING WE DID NOTICE AT THE TIME AND I BELIEVE LOOKING AT THE PRELIMINARY WORK THAT WE'RE GOING TO BE PRESENTING AT THE WORKSHOP, THE NOISE ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE IT'S GOING DOWN FROM T T THE 2007 MODEL.

WE SEE IT SHRINKING. WE OUTLINED THIS AT THE TIME IN THE NOISE STUDY. IT ALLOWS FOR A BETTER APPROACH. ONE THAT CAN BE HIGHER, LOWER, POWER SETTINGS WHEN COMING INTO THE AIRPORT FROM THE EAST OF THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. WE'RE ALSO LOOKING AT THE NEWER AIRCRAFT THAT ARE USING THE AIRPORT.

AND THOSE, AS OUR AEROENGINEER WILL KNOW BETTER, THEY ARE QUIETER. EVEN FROM THE TIME WE ID THE NOISE STUDY IN '07 WE GOT RID OF THE STAGE TWO AIRCRAFT, THE BIG NOISE MAKERS ARE COMPLETELY OUT OF THE SYSTEM IN THE U.S.

WE SEE THOSE NOISE CONTOURS SHRINKING.

>> D. SMITH: FOR THE AVERAGE RESIDENT THEY CAN EXPECT A

DECREASE IN NOISE EMISSION? >> WE BELIEVE SO.

YES. >> D. SMITH: THAT WOULD BE GREAT. LAST QUESTION --

>> THE OTHER REASON I WOULD BE WILLING VERY SIGNIFICANTLY TO INVEST IN DOUG'S STATEMENT BECAUSE OF THE RESEARCH WE'RE

[00:15:02]

DOING. WORKING HARD O FIGURE OUT HOW WE MAKE ELECTRIC DRIVEN AIRPLANES LIKE YOU SEE CARS.

YOU STEP OFF A CURB WHEN A TOYOTA PRIUS IS GOING BY YOU CAN'T HERE IT. THEY WILL BE DRIVEN BY FUEL CELLS AND ELECTRICAL DEVICES. NOT FOR THE BIG PASSENGER JETS BUT FOR THE REGIONAL AND GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT YOU WILL SEE ELECTRIC AIRPLANES WHERE THE SOUND YOU HEAR IS THE RUSH OF THE WIND OVER THE WINGS AND O ENGINE SOUND.

THAT'S WHY E'RE DOING THE RESEARCH SO THE STATEMENT I MADE

CAN COME TRUE. >> D. SMITH: THAT WOULD BE FANTASTIC IF OSU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO THE EMISSIONS PROBLEM. CAN YOU SPEAK TO THE LEAD PARTICULATE ISSUE ON THE SHEEP FARM PROPERTY, A COLUMBUS DISPATCH ARTICLE IN DECEMBER ABOUT THAT.

>> I CANNOT BUT I CAN PROMISE YOU IF THAT'S SOMETHING YOU WOULD LIKE US TO FOLLOW-UP ON, THAT IS AN ACTION ITEM.

SURE. >> D. SMITH: ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU. >> HANNAH IS WITH THE UNIVERSITY'S REAL ESTATE AND PLANNING OFFICE.

>> D. SMITH: WAS THE CITY OF COLUMBUS' PURCHASE OF THE SHEEP

FARM CLOSING DELAYED? >> I HAVE TO FIND OUT.

--

>> D. SMITH: YOU ARE REAL ESTATE FOR THE AIRPORT AND -- THANK

YOU. >>

>> D. SMITH: THANKS. >>

>> WE HAVE NO LEGAL AUTHORITY TO DO ANYTHING WITH BUILDING OR BUILDING OUT OR WHATEVER THE IMMEDIATE AND FUTURE PLANS ARE, I IMAGINE THERE WILL BE COMPLAINTS.

DO YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT HOTLINE AND HOW DO YOU HANDLE THOSE

COMPLAINTS? >> YES, WE HAVE THREE DIFFERENT OPTIONS FOR PEOPLE TO FILE, WHETHER IT'S A NOISE COMPLAINT OR ANY QUESTION. THEY CAN DO IT DIRECTLY TO ME.

WE HAVE A NOISE PHONE LINE AND WE HAVE AN ONLINE WEBSITE A FORM THEY CAN FILL OUT. THAT IS THE ONE PEOPLE USE THE MOST. WE WILL DO RESEARCH, I WILL WORK WITH PORT COLUMBUS. THEY HAVE THE RADAR DATA.

IF IT'S ISSUE WITH THE AIRCRAFT, I CAN PINPOINT WHAT IT IS, WHERE AND HOW HIGH AND WHAT T TYPE.

I WILL CALL THEM BACK AND. >> D. SMITH: EVERYTHING WE HAVE

IS UBLIC RECORD. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: ANY

OTHER QUESTIONS? >> B. KOWALCZYK: YOU SAID YOU HAVE TO SUBMIT TO THE FAA FOR APPROVAL AND THERE IS A PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD. HOW LONG IS THE PUBLIC COMMENT

PERIOD? >> IF I UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS, AND IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE AND PUT A PLAN THROUGH WITH THE FAA, THEY WILL TAKE AND DO A REVIEW FROM A TECHNICAL STANDPOINT, MAKE URE IT WORKS FROM AIRSPACE AND SAFETY.

WHEN WE SUBMIT THROUGH THE UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION IS WHERE THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES WITH A PLAN OES THROUGH THEIR PROCESS, EACH ONE OF THEIR MEETINGS HAS A PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD IN IT SO THE PUBLIC CAN, IT WILL BE ON THEIR AGENDA.

THEY CAN GO THERE, LISTEN TO THE DISCUSSION AND THEN MAKE PUBLIC

COMMENTS. >> B. KOWALCZYK: THAT ISN'T

REQUIRED BY THE FAA? >> INTERESTINGLY NOTHING FOR A MASTER PLAN, THE A DOES NOT HAVE ANY PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT REQUIREMENTS LIKE THEY WOULD FOR A NOISE STUDY.

LIKE ANY AIRPORT SHOULD DO WE HAVE AN -- THAT'S THE RIGHT WAY

TO DO IT. >> IF PEOPLE WANTED TO PARTICIPATE IS IT POSTED ON THE WEBSITE OR EMAIL OR PUBLIC

COMMENT? >> YES.

MARIE, CAN I ASK MARIE TO COME UP? SHE'S LEADING OUR PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCESS.

>> YES, THANK YOU. THE PROCESSES WE'RE GOING TO BE PROMOTED THE PUBLIC MEETING ON MARCH 12.

I THINK YOU HEARD THERE S AN OPEN HOUSE FROM 3-5.

FEEL FREE TO STAY. THE MEETING IS GOING TO BE ADVERTISED FROM 6-8. BUT ANYBODY IS WELCOME.

AT THAT POINT WE HAVE A 30-DAY COMMENT PERIOD FOLLOWING THE PUBLIC MEETING. WHEN WE DO THE PROMOTION, WE'LL

[00:20:02]

HAVE A WEB LINK AND SHOW OTHER WAYS YOU CAN SHARE COMMENTS.

THEY WILL HAVE TIME TO O THAT, NOT JUST THAT NIGHT.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: HOW ARE THOSE PUBLIC PUBLIC COMMENTS ADDRESSED OR WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THEM ONCE YOU RECEIVE THEM?

>> STATU STAFF WILL BE THERE, AND DOCUMENT EVERY QUESTION AND COLLECT ANY COMMENT AND GROUPING THEM BY CATEGORY AND RESPONDING TO EACH ONE OF THOSE BATCHES OF QUESTIONS.

SO YOU MIGHT HAVE THREE QUESTIONS THAT ASK PRETTY MUCH THE IS A SAME THING BUT WITH SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT WORDING.

WE'LL LIST IT ONCE WITH THE RESPONSE.

AND THAT IS PART OF DOCUMENTATION THAT GOES IN THE MASTER PLAN AS WELL AS APPENDIX IN THE PLAN.

AND THAT DOCUMENT WE HAVE BEEN LETTING OUT ONE CHAPTER AT A TIME ONCE THE TECHNICAL WORK IS DONE WE SEND TO TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE, WE INVITE COMMENT AS THOSE CHAPTERS GO OUT. AFTER THE PUBLIC MEETING AND WE DO THAT ADVISORY COMMITTEE AGAIN, THERE WILL BE AT LEAST ONE OR TWO CHAPTERS THAT WILL GO.

SO THERE IS A COUPLE OF PROCESSES WHERE YOU CAN PROVIDE

PUBLIC COMMENT. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I WOULD LIKE TO GET ON THE EMAIL LIST. HHOW DO YOU DO THAT?

>> YOU CAN GIVE ME YOUR CARD. WHEN WE SEND THAT PROMOTIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE MEETINGS WE ASK HER OR THROUGH YOUR CHANNELS TO FORD THAT INFORMATION.

WE ASK OUR TECHNICAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEMBERS TO SHARE THOSE. WE CAN'T, WE'LL NEVER COLLECTS EVERYONE'S EMAIL SO WE RELY ON THOSE CHANNELS TO HELP US AND THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN HELPFUL IN DOING THAT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I WAS WONDERING WHERE DO YOU MENTION YOUR PILOTS ARE LEARNING ON THE STATE OF THE ART.

AND YOU ARE THE ONLY FACILITY THAT HAS THE LONGER AREA FOR ALL THE PILOTS TO LEARN TOGETHER. HOW DO STUDENTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK, WHEREVER, WHAT SORT OF FACILITIES DO THEY HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO BE PILOTS.

>> I LEARNED TO FLY AT THE RED STONE ARMY AIRFIELD ARMY FLYING CLUB. WHICH AS NOT EXACTLY THE MOST COLLEGIATE PLACE TO FLY. WHILE I CAN SAY THE AIRPLANES WERE AS WELL MAINTAINED AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, THEY WERE NOT STATE OF THE ART. WE HAD TO BAIL THEM TOGETHER.

THAT IS A ONE WAY TO FLY. BUT I NEVER SAW A GLASS COCKPIT. ALL DIGITAL SCREEN.

I NEVER SAW ONE OF THOSE AIRPLANES, I NEVER FLEW ONE

UNTIL I MOVED TO OHIO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHERE ARE OTHER STUDENTS, I'M SURE OHIO STATE

ISN'T THE ONLY PLACE. >> THERE ARE.

BUT WE'RE CONSTANTLY WORKING TO KEEP UP WITH THE STATE OF THE ART. WE DON'T WANT TO TRAIN IF SOMEONE IS LEARNING TO DRIVE A CAR, WE DON'T WANT TO TRAIN THEM ON A 1954 CHEVROLET BELL AIR. THAT'S WHY THE CESSNA 172 DONATED THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP ARE SO IMPORTANT WE TRAIN THEM ON THE STATE OF THE ART. WITHOUT GOING INTO THE CHALLENGE THAT WAS THE LION AIR CRASH. WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE IF THE PILOTS KNEW HOW TO RUN IT, YOU RUN THE RISK.

WHEN WE TRAIN A YOUNG MAN OR WOMAN, THEY TRIP ON EQUIPMENT THAT IS TOP OF THE LINE AND MAINTAINED AND WE PROVIDE FACILITIES THAT WILL GUARANTEE THEY WILL LEARN HOW TO FLY

SAFELY TO WHERE THEY ARE GOING. >> IF I COULD ADD TO THAT.

THERE IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT STANDS OHIO STATE OUT OVER THE OTHER ONES IN OHIO AND I THINK MOST OF THE PROGRAMS IN THE MIDWEST, WE'RE ONE OF THE ONLY COLLEGIATE AVIATION PROGRAMS IN THE MIDWEST IN WHICH OUR STUDENTS GET TO TRAIN IN A AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. THAT'S KEY TO TALK TO CONTROLLERS. I CAN GUARANTEE OUR STUDENTS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT OHIO FLY TO OHIO STATE TO GET

[00:25:06]

THE TRAINING. OUR CONTROLLERS WILL TELL YOU, THEY KNOW WHEN SOMEONE IS COMING FROM THOSE SCHOOLS.

THEY DO NOT KNOW OW TO TALK TO THEM.

GIVING THEM THE LATEST IN TECHNOLOGY AND THE ROADER EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IS KEY TO GETTING THEM OUT AT THE TOP OF THE RANKS WHEN THEY GET OUT OF COLLEGE AND GET THOSE JOBS

WITH THE AIRLINES. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IT

LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE THINKING. >> I WAS THINKING I HOPE THOSE STUDENTS THAT DON'T HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH CONTROLLERS ARE

NOT DIRECTED OVER WORTHINGTON. >> WHEN THEY DO, WE OPERATE UNDERNEATH A CLASS C AIRSPACE, THAT IS AT JOHN GLENN AND OHIO STATE IS OUTSIDE THAT CLASS C AIRSPACE.

IT'S IMPORTANT THE STUDENTS COORDINATE AND EVERY TIME THEY FLY, WITHIN THE VICINITY OF THE CLASS C, THEY WILL TALK TO PEOPLE AT JOHN GLENN INTERNATIONAL.

IF YOU FLY ON AN AIRPORT THAT DOESN'T HAVE A TOWER, THE FIRST TIME YOU HAVE TO HEAR AND OBEY, CAN BE VERY STRESSFUL IN THE COCKPIT. IT'S CRITICAL OUR STUDENTS LEARN TO TRAIN IN THE ENVIRONMENT SO THEY ARE CONSTANTLY COMMUNICATING AND FLY SAFELY IN A VARIETY OF AIRSPACES.

HAVING FLOWN IN CHICAGO, BOSTON, ST. LOUIS, THE CLASS B AIRSPACES, THE FIRST TIME YOU DO IT YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE NO EXPERIENCE. YOU WANT TO KNOW THAT IS OING

TO WORKOUT FINE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR COMING. WE APPRECIATE YOU TAKING THE

TIME AND SHARING EVERYTHING. >> I WILL LEAVE MY, I GUESS MY CARD WITH SOMEONE HERE IF THERE IS ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE LET US

KNOW. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: MOVING

[5.B. Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan and Complete Streets Policy Presentation of Drafted Recommendations Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan and Complete Streets Policy Presentation of Drafted Recommendations Executive Summary: The draft findings and recommendations for the Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan will be presented to obtain feedback. The presentation will also include an update and review of the draft Complete Streets Policy. Recommendation: Provide Feedback for Consultants and Staff]

ONTO THE RAFT FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN. THEY ARE GOING TO PRESENT THAT AND THEN OPPORTUNITIES FOR FEEDBACK.

>> MR. GREESON. >> M. GREESON: THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN MOBILITY ISSUES. AS YOU KNOW WE'VE BEEN WORKING DILIGENTLY ON A BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN.

WE HAVE OUR ONSULTANTS, REPRESENTATIVES OF OUR ADVISORY BOARD HERE THIS EVENING. I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MR. HURLEY, WHO IS BEEN SUPPORTING THIS EFFORT.

HE'S GOING TO INTRODUCE FOLKS FOR OUR PRESENTATION.

>> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON, PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCIL. IT'S AN EXCITING NIGHT AND MILESTONE IN THESE DUAL PLANNING PROCESSES THAT HAVE BEEN UNDERWAY. WE KICKED OFF TWO PROCESSES, THE BIKE AND MASTER PLANNING PROCESS AND THE COMPLETE STREETS DRAFTING, THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY DRAFTING PROCESS WITH THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE OF MORPC. THE TIMING WAS GREAT, THANKS TO THE WORK OF OUR CONSULTING TEAMS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BE COORDINATED AND WORKED ON TOGETHER SO THERE IS COORDINATION SO THEY CAN COMPLIMENT EACH OTHER. SO BEFORE WE KICKOFF THE PRESENTATION, I WANTED TO DO A FEW INTRODUCTIONS BECAUSE WE HAVE A LOT OF FOLKS HERE TONIGHT.

FOR THE BIKE AND PED MASTER PLAN, BLUE ZONES LLC AND PLANNING NEXT IS OUR LOCAL FIRM, TONY HULL AND DAN BURTON WITH BLUE ZONES, THEY WILL BE UP TO PRESENT.

MORPC AND COMPLETE STREETS, WE HAVE JENNIFER NOLE AND TOBY ATWANA. WE WELCOME HEM.

MR. GREESON MENTIONED THE BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN ADVISORY BOARD.

WOULD HAVE BEEN A LEADER AND OUT FRONT IN THIS PROCESS.

AND SEE ANN HORTON, I DON'T THINK ANYONE ELSE SLIPPED IN.

PROBABLY THE HARDEST WORKING PERSON YOU HAVE IS CILIA THORNTON. SHE DOES A LOT OF EHIND THE SCENES STUFF, TO KEEP ALL OF OUR BIKE AND PED ACTIVITIES.

SO THANK YOU, CILIA. I SAW KELLY WAYLAND, SO WELCOME KELLY. WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, I WILL BE QUIET. AS YOU KNOW AND I KNOW YOU HAVE HAD A LOT OF STUFF WITH HE RETREAT, NOT JUST TONIGHT'S PRESENTATION, THIS WEEK WE'RE TRYING TO GET FROM YOU AND THE STEERING COMMITTEE AND OUR PUBLIC.

WE AD AN OPEN THIS THIS EVENING, PRESIDENT MICHAEL WAS

[00:30:14]

ABLE TO STOP BY. WE'LL PUT THIS ONLINE.

WE HAVE A PROJECT WEBSITE. AND SO OLKS WILL BE ABLE TO VIEW AND MAKE COMMENTS. WE HAVEN'T DECIDED HOW LONG BUT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS FOR ADDITIONAL FEEDBACKS FROM FOLKS WHO WERE NOT ACT TO MAKE THE PRESENTATIONS.

-- ABLE. I THINK WE'RE GOING TO START WITH JENNIFER AND HER TEAM AND GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON THE

COMPLETE STREETS POLICY. >> THANK YOU, DIRECTOR HURLEY.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL, MEMBERS OF COUNCI L, THANK YOU FOR HAVING US WITH YOU THIS EVENING. MY NAME IS JENNIFER NOLE, WITH MORPC, JOINED BY TOBY. WE HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF HAVING HER INTERN WITH US AS SHE COMPLETES HER DEGREE.

WE'RE PLEASED TO BE WITH YOU THIS EVENING.

WORTHINGTON WAS ONE OF FOUR COMMUNITIES SELECTED FOR MORPC 50 TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM IN 2017.

AN AWARD OF MORPC TO HELP PROJECTS OR PLANS RELATE TODAY THE CONCEPTS WE TALK ABOUT THROUGHOUT INSIGHT 2050.

LAND USE AND MOBILITY RELATED. WE HAVE BEEN PLEASED TO WORK WITH THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON TO PROVIDE RESOURCES, TOOLS, RESEARCH, BEST PRACTICES, TOWARD THE COMMUNITY'S GOAL OF ADOPTING A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY. REALLY THE TIMING COULDN'T HAVE BEEN BETTER. WE WERE EXCITED TO LEARN AND PLEASED TO LEARN WE WOULD BE ABLE TO WORK ALONG THE BLUE ZONE TEAM AS PART OF THE STRATEGIC PLANNING EFFORT.

WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS REFLECTS NOT ONLY A COLLABORATION WITH CITY STAFF AND THE BLUE ZONE TEAM AS WELL.

WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO KICKOFF THE DISCUSSION AND TRANSITION INTO THE WORK THE BLUE ZONE TEAM HAS DONE AS WELL. YOU HAVE TO OUTSMART THE TECHNOLOGY, FOLKS. THERE WE GO.

SO THIS IS JUST A BRIEF AGENDA OF WHAT TOBY AND I WILL TALK ABOUT THIS EVENING. WE WANT TO TAKE TIME TO SHARE WHAT EXACTLY HAS BEEN DONE WITH REGARD TO THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY. AND AKE TIME TO TALK ABOUT COMPLETE STREETS CONCEPTS IN GENERAL.

WHY THEY ARE IMPORTANT AND WHY WE ENCOURAGE OUR MEMBERS TO THINK ABOUT HOW TO INCORPORATE ELEMENTS AND POLICIES INTO YOUR COMMUNITIES. VERY BRIEFLY, WE ARE A VOLUNTARY ASSOCIATION OF LOCAL GOVER GOVERNMENTS.

WE'RE VERY MUCH A MEMBER -DRIVEN AND MISSION-DRIVEN ORGANIZATION. TO SUPPORT OUR MEMBERS LIKE THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON. AND DELIVERING A HIGH-LEVEL OF SERVICE TO YOUR COMMUNITY THROUGH A VARIETY OF PROGRAMS AND PROJECTS. INSIGHT 2050 AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE IS ONE WAY. WE HAVE DIVIDED THIS UP INTO A QUESTION AND ANSWER SESSION THIS EVENING.

STARTING WITH THE BASIC, WHAT ARE COMPLETE STREETS? COMPLETE STREETS ARE STREETS FOR EVERYONE, DESIGNED TO PROVIDE SAFE ACCESS, WHETHER DRIVING, WALKING, RIDING A BIKE OR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. MAKES IT EASIER TO CROSS STREETS, TO RIDE YOUR BIKE OR HOP ON THE BUS INTO TOWN.

COMPLETE STREETS ARE TRULY SAFER STREETS.

WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE AND WHERE DO WE PUT THEM? THE REALITY IS, THESE ARE KIND OF TRICK QUESTIONS, COMPLETE STREETS DON'T COME IN A SINGULAR SHAPE OR SIDE. THEY SEE CONTEXT SENSITIVE ELEMENTS DESIGNED TO GO TO IT WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF A COMMUNITY. A COMPLETE STREET IN A RURAL TOWNSHIP IS GOING TO LOOK DIFFERENT FROM A COMPLETE STREET IN DOWNTOWN COLUMBUS. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY BOTH ARE DESIGNED TO ACCOMPLISH THE SAME GOAL, TO BALANCE SAFETY AND CONVENIENCE FOR ALL USERS ALONG THE ROADWAYS.

WHY DO WE NEED THEM? ULTIMATELY, THEY ARE A NECESSARY FOR A VARIETY OF REASONS. SOME CASES IT'S AS SIMPLE AS BECAUSE PEOPLE DEMAND THEM. OTHER CASES WE NEED COMPLETE STREETS BECAUSE THEY CAN HELP TO IMPROVE SAFETY.

THEY ARE KNOWN COUNTER MEASURES TO IMPROVE SAFETY.

WE PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE HERE. MORPC RELEASES TOP CRASHES,

[00:35:04]

USING DATA FROM O.D.O.T. THE WILSON BRIDGE ROAD APPEARED ON THAT LIST. WE PUT IT TOGETHER, NOT TO CALL OUT ANY COMMUNITY OR INTERSECTION BUT BECAUSE WE HAVE LIMITED RESOURCES. IT'S A WAY THAT MORPC PRIORITIZE RESOURCES TO WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED.

TO ADOPTED A COMPLETE STREET POLICY AND WORKING WITH WORTHINGTON TO ADOPTED THIS POLICY WE CAN HELP TO IMPROVE SAFETY AT INTERSECTIONS ACROSS THE JURISDICTION.

>> CRASH SITES, WHICH IS THE WORST?

>> ONE IS THE WORST. >> COMPLETE STREETS ARE BETTER STREETS. THERE ARE MANY BENEFITS.

SAFER, AND A HOST OF HEALTH BENEFITS.

I THINK IT'S WORTH MENTIONING AT MORPC WE VALUE THE BENEFIT OF COMPLETE STREETS. WE USE THIS AS A CARROT TO ENCOURAGE OUR COMMUNITIES THROUGH OUR ATTRIBUTABLE FUNDING PROGRAM FOR ROAD IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS.

THEY MUST ADHERE TO THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDS. IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING AS COMMUNITIES CONTINUE TO ADOPT MORE COMPLETE STREETS ELEMENTS INTO THEIR ROAD IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS THIS IS SOMETHING THAT LOOKS REALLY VALUABLE TO OUR FUNDERS AND HELP GIVE COMMUNITIES A COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE IN THAT PROCESS.

I APOLOGIZE. THIS GOT A LITTLE BIT WONKY.

I CAN'T NOT TALK ABOUT THE POPULATION GROWTH AND WHY THAT MATTERS WHEN TALKING ABOUT COMPLETE STREET POLICIES.

THE DATA REALLY DOES SHOW A NEED FOR THIS KIND OF SAFER STREET ELEMENT WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES. LAST YEAR WE GREW ABOUT 43,000 PEOPLE. BY THE TIME WE GET TO 2050 IT'S LIKELY WE COULD BECOME A REGION WITH 3,000,000 PEOPLE.

WE NEED TO ANTICIPATE CHALLENGES, LIKE TRAFFIC CONGESTION. THINGS LIKE COMPLETE STREETS POLICIES, OUR COMMUNITIES CAN BE BETTER PREPARED TO MITIGATE THOSE UNANTICIPATED CONSEQUENCES OF GROWTH.

FOR MORPC PERSPECTIVE GROWTH IS AN INTERESTING THING TO TALK ABOUT. WHAT WE UNDERSCORE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT POPULATION GROWTH, THE TRENDS THAT UNDER LINE ARE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE EXPERIENCED IN THE PAST.

30 YEARS AGO IT WAS A TIME OF GROWTH FOR CENTRAL OHIO, DOMINATED BY BABY BOOMERS, RAISING THEIR CHILDREN, BUILDING CAREERS. AS A RESULT AT THAT TIME WE SAW A GROWING DEMAND FOR SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES IN GOOD SCHOOL DISTRICTS. MORE AND MORE FAMILIES WANT O BE HERE TO RAISE THEIR CHILDREN IN A WONDERFUL COMMUNITY.

WE NEED TO ANTICIPATE WHERE THE CHANGES ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE. WE'RE GETTING OLDER SO THE BOOMERS ARE MOVING INTO EMPTY NESTER AND RETIREMENT.

AT THE SAME TIME, WE HAVE THE MILLENNIALS AND THAT GENERATION-Z, THE LARGEST AND MOST DIVERSE AND WE HAVE OUR SHARE IN CENTRAL OHIO. WE'RE GOING TO EXPERIENCE DIFFERING MARKET PREFERENCES AS A RESULT OF THOSE TWO PEAKS OF POPULATION GROWTH. THE REALITY IS THAT EMOGRAPHIC TRENDS SHAPE THE LOOK AND FEEL OF OUR ROADS AND COMMUNITIES.

TODAY AND FOR THE EXT 30 YEARS THOSE TRENDS ARE GOING TO INCLUDE BETTER CONNECTED NEIGHBORHOODS, MORE WALKABLE AND INTEGRATE USES. WHETHER YOU CHOOSE TO RIDE YOUR BIKE, WALK OR TAKE A BUS, THE MOBILITY OPTIONS IS GOING TO CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DECADES.

THIS TIES BACK DO INFRASTRUCTURE AND COMPLETE STREETS.

THIS IS ICOMPLETE STREETS CAN HELP TRAFFIC FLOW AND PUBLIC SAFETY ALONG WITH BEAUTIFYING THE LANDSCAPE.

THIS IS OF INTEREST TO WORTHINGTON, THE CITY HAS EMBRACED THIS KIND OF PROJECT WITH US AND THE BLUE ZONE TEAM.

AND THIS IS A REALLY GOOD TIME TO BE THINKING ABOUT IT.

I WANT TO TRANSITION TO TOBY TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE SPECIFICS WE

[00:40:01]

HAVE BEEN WORK ON AND HOW IT TIES TOGETHER WITH THE WORK BLUE ZONE HAS BEEN DOING. I WILL HAND IT OVER TO TOBY.

>> THANK YOU, FOR AVING ME. HOW DO WE GET THERE? A GOOD STARTING POINT IS THE NATIONAL COMPLETE STREETS COALITION, THEY ARE THE PREMIER ORGANIZATION.

SO WE LOOK TO THEM AS A NATIONAL LEADER FOR RESOURCES, WEBINARS, POLICY, DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION.

AND WHAT THEY DVOCATE FOR IS COMPLETE STREETS POLICY AND CLEAR IMPLEMENTATION. MORPC PASSED IT'S OWN POLICY IN 2012 AND ABLE TO INCORPORATE THEBERT SAID INTO THE WAY WE THINK ABOUT -- BENEFITS -- INTO THE POLICY AND GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE POLICY. WHAT HAS BEEN IMPACTFUL IS INCORPORATING THAT INTO THE PROJECT SELECTION AND ROJECT APPLICATION PROCESS AS JENN TALKED ABOUT.

TO ADOPT THEIR COMPLETE STREETS POLICY.

INCORPORATING PEDESTRIAN AND BIKE FACILITIES IN THE PROJECT APPLICATION THAT IS GREAT BECAUSE MORPC IS LOOKING FOR THAT. IT'S ALSO BENEFICIAL TO HAVE YOUR OWN POLICY AS PART OF THE APPLICATION PROCESS.

IT GIVES YOU ADDITIONAL POINTS. SPECIFICALLY, FOR THE INSIGHT 2050 TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, IT'S GREAT WORKING WITH WORTHINGTON THROUGH THIS PILOT PROJECTS.

WE'LL GO THROUGH THE DELIVERABLES.

THE ONCE WE HAVE COMPLETED, WE HAVE TWO COMPLETE REPORTS AND THE IMPLEMENTATION TOOL KIT PART ONE.

IN THOSE DELIVERABLES, WE HAVE ENFORCEMT STRATEGIES, LOOKING AT PEDESTRIANS, TRANSIT USERS. HOW DO WE DESIGN FOR THOSE ROADWAY USERS, WHAT ARE THE LAWS AND HOW CAN WE ENFORCE THEM.

WE HAVE PULLED THAT FROM THE COMPLETE STREETS OALITION AND THE TOOL KIT THAT WAS DEVELOPED IN 2012.

WE GOT THE NATIONAL AND REGIONAL PERSPECTIVE AND ABLE TO WORK WITH CITY OF WORTHINGTON STAFF TO GET THE LOCAL CONTEXT FOR THE RESOURCES. WE ALSO INCLUDED PERFORMANCE STANDARDS. THOSE ARE SAMPLE PERFORMANCE STANDARDS WE DIDN'T PRESCRIBE. YOU NEED TO MEASURE 50 SQUARE FEET OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. GOING THROUGH BEST PRACTICES.

THESE ARE THE TYPES OF MEASURES THAT COMMUNITIES ARE LOOKING AT TO SEE WHETHER THEY ARE MAKING STREETS SAFER BY IMPLEMENTING STREETS. RELATING TO SUSTAINABILITY AND EQUITY AND ALL THESE THINGS. WE INCLUDED GUIDELINES FOR POLICY WRITING. I WILL GO INTO THAT ON THE NEXT SLIDE. NATIONAL COMPLETE STREETS, GREAT RESOURCE. THEY PRODUCE REPORTS.

THEY REFINE THE PROCESS OF WHAT A COMPLETE STREETS POLICY SHOULD HAVE AND THEY THE 10 ELEMENTS OF THE COMMITTEE STREETS POLICY.

THAT WAS THE STARTING POINT FOR THIS DOCUMENT.

AND SHARING THESE BEST PRACTICES.

I KEEP AYING BEST PRACTICES. THERE IS A LOT OF THEM.

SO THAT'S PART OF WHAT WE INCLUDED IN THE REPORTS.

WATER INFRASTRUCTURE, NOT ONLY FOR CARS AND PEOPLE WALKING AND BIKING AND TRANSIT USERS BUT HOW DO THEY WORK FOR WATER.

I THINK THAT'S RELEVANT TODAY. HOW CAN WE MAKE SURE OUR STREETS WORK FOR OUR RESOURCES AS WELL. EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND SHARED MOBILITIES. WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WITH TRANSPORTATION TECHNOLOGY IN THE FUTURE BUT WE CAN THINK AHEAD HOW TO LEVERAGE TECHNOLOGY.

THERE IS A QUOTE, IT'S NOT SMART UNLESS YOU LEVERAGE THE TECHNOLOGY. HOW CAN WE LEVERAGE FOR SUSTAINABILITY, AFFORDABILITY, THAT'S THE LANGUAGE WHEN IT COMES TO EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND COMPLETE STREETS.

TRANSIT, CAR SHARING, BIKE SHARING.

ALL THINGS THAT ARE BECOMING MORE RELEVANT.

HOW DO WE THINK ABOUT THE IN THE CONTEXT OF COMPLETE STREETS.

STRATEGIES, AT THE END OF THE DAY IS -- PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT ABILITIES, PHYSICAL OR COGNITIVE, THOSE TYPES OF PRINCIPLES. AND ARTS AND CULTURE.

HOW CAN WE MAKE IT AN INVITING SPACE.

THOSE ARE THINGS INCORPORATED INTO THOSE DELIVERERABLES WE HAVE COMPLETED. WE HAVE A FEW THAT WE'RE GOING TO WRAP UP BY THE END OF FEBRUARY.

THE COMPLETE STREETS POLICY, A DRAFT WILL BE A FINAL

[00:45:03]

DELIVERABLE FOR THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

THAT PULLS FROM THE THAT THE NATIONAL COMPLETE STREET COALITION PUBLISHES. LIKE I SAID, WE'LL WORK THROUGH POLICY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES AND BEST PRACTICES FOR WORTHINGTON.

SO BEING SENSITIVE WITH HOW WE INCORPORATE THAT LANGUAGE INTO THE POLICY. MAKING SURE IT'S FLEXIBLE.

AND MAKING SURE THAT WORTHINGTON IS IN A PLACE TO IMPLEMENT THE BEST COMPLETE STREETS THEY AN. AND ALL OF THESE DELIVERABLES SHOULD SAY WE WORKED THROUGH AN ITERATIVE PROCESS TO FINALIZE THEM. THE LAST DELIVERABLE IS IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE. WE WORKED WITH THE CITY TO LOOK AT WORTHINGTON'S ROADS, NOT UST FOR HOW THEY MOVE CARS BUT THE CONTEXT OF THE LAND USE ALONG THE ROAD.

WORKING THROUGH THAT WE DEVELOPED A ROADWAY CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM, SENSITIVE TO WORTHINGTON.

KIND OF ASSIGNED OR FIGURED OUT WHAT ARE STREET DESIGN GUIDELINES THAT GO WITH THOSE CLASSIFICATIONS WITHIN THE T TOPOGRAPHY. NOT PRESCRIPTIVE.

WHEN THERE IS PPORTUNITY TO REDEVELOP AND YOU ARE CONSIDERING ALL DIFFERENT MODES OF USERS, HOW DO WE DESIGN A ROAD FOR THEM? THIS IS MEANT TO BE A RESOURCE AS YOU CONSIDER THAT. THOSE ARE ALL OF THE COMPONENTS THAT ARE DELIVERED OR ON THEIR WAY TO BE DELIVERED AS PART OF THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

WITH THAT, I WILL OPEN IT UP TO QUESTIONS IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS FOR THE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

>> M. GREESON: PRESIDENT MICHAEL, I WANTED TO -- ON THE COMPLETE STREETS AND I WANTED TO SEE IF HE HAD ANYTHING TO ADD AS

WELL. >> THANK YOU, MR. GREESON.

THANK YOU, OBY AND JENNIFER FOR A NICE PRESENTATION.

IT'S BEEN, AS I SAID, AN ITERATIVE PROCESS.

WE HAD TO PUT THE BRAKES ON FOR A HORT PERIOD OF TIME.

THE ISSUES RELATED TO BIKE AND PED.

THIS IS A OLICY, IT'S A POLICY THAT WILL TAKE TIME TO IMPLEMENT BUT IT'S A PARADIGM SHIFT AS A SERVICE AND ENGINEERING GROUP AND HOW WE COLLABORATE WITH PARKS AND REC TO MAKE SURE WE'RE ANTICIPATING AND PLANS PLANNING FOR THE HINGS TOBY AND JENN HAVE GONE OVER. JUST TO UNDERSTAND AS WE TO DO OUR PROJECTS OR REDEVELOPMENT ACONSIDERS OR MAKING SURE WE RECOGNIZE THESE IMPLEMENTATION TO TOOL-KIT ISSUES THAT WE'LL BE CREATED AND RECOGNIZING THE NEEDS OF THE COMPLETE STREETS AND THE THINGS THEY HAVE TALKED ABOUT.

AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THAT.

I UNDERSTAND IT WILL TAKE PATIENCE AND RECOGNIZING A DIFFERENT WAY OF THINKING ABOUT THINGS AS ENGINEER WHEN IT COMES TO CONSTRUCTION AND RECONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT.

THANK YOU. >> D. FOUST: HOW THIS WORKS IN A BUILT-OUT COMMUNITY LIKE WORTHINGTON.

I HAPPENED TO LOOK AT YOUR SCHEMATIC FOR A COMPLETE RESIDENTIAL STREET. IF THAT WERE BUILT ON MY STREET IT WOULD TAKE OUT MY FRONT PORCH.

HOW DO WE GO BOUT THAT? >> FOR COMMUNITIES LIKE WORTHINGTON, RETROFITTING IS YOUR COMMUNITY TO MPLEMENT COMPLETE STREETS. A CONTEXT-SENSITIVE APPROACH.

WHEN CAN WE IMPLEMENT AND THE OPPORTUNITY. NOT ABOUT RIPPING UP THE STREETS. THAT'S NOT THE POINT OF IT.

BUT LOOKING FOR THE OPPORTUNITIES.

IT MIGHT BE A MAINTENANCE, RESTRIPING, RESURFACING OPPORTUNITY. WHEN YOU HAVE THOSE PROJECTS INSTEAD OF GOING THROUGH THEM, TAKE A SECOND TO PAUSE AND LOOK BACK AT THE IMPLEMENTATION TOOL KITS AND SEE HOW WE CAN MAKE THIS ROAD WORK BETTER FOR EVERYONE SINCE WE'RE ALREADY DOING SOMETHING ON THE PROJECT ANYWAYS.

>> D. FOUST: YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD.

WE'RE NOT BUILDING A NEW COMMUNITY.

WE'RE RETO FITTING AND UNDERSTANDING WE'RE NOT GOING TO WIDEN THE ROAD BUT MAKE SURE THE SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS OR OR

[00:50:05]

TYPES OF PRACTICES WE CAN PUT IN PLACE THAT ARE APPROPRIATE DURING CONSTRUCTION, DURING RECONSTRUCTION ND MAINTENANCE, AT LEAST THINK ABOUT THAT AND TAKE THE TIME TO IMPLEMENT THAT. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, AS WE THINK ABOUT OUR C.I.P. FIVE YEARS FROM NOW WE CAN PLAN FOR RECOGNIZING AND FIND FUNDING FOR THOSE THINGS THAT IS NOT NECESSARILY AVAILABLE TO US RIGHT NOW.

>> D. FOUST: WE HAVE INCORPORATED THIS THINKING INTO

OUR NORTHEAST GATEWAY. >> IN AN IMPRESSIVE WAY AND THAT'S THE WAY WE HOPE TO CONTINUE TO LOOK TO THINGS IN

THE FUTURE. >> CAN YOU REWIND THE SLIDE

SHOW. >> DO YOU KNOW WHAT CITY THAT

IS? >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

ANY OTHER COUNCIL QUESTIONS? IF NOT, WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH THE NEXT PART OF OUR PROGRAM.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR A VERY WONDERFUL PRESENTATION.

WHILE WE'RE TAKING A SECOND, I WANT TO WELCOME STATE REPRESENTATIVE BETH WILSON WHO IS HERE.

WELCOME TO OUR CHAMBERS. WE'RE GLAD YOU JOINED US.

>> DAN, WHENEVER YOU READY, COME ON UP.

>> THANK YOU, MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND STAFF.

I'M DAD BURDEN AND I HAVE THE GREAT PLEASURE OF WORKING IN THE COMMUNITIES OF READY FOR CHANGE.

THIS IS A PROJECT THAT REALLY PREPARES WORTHINGTON FOR THE FUTURE. I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT THE REPORT IS. AND THEN WHAT IT IS NOT.

FIRST OF ALL, IT'S AN ASPIRATIONAL GOAL.

A TARGET YOU ARE REACHING FOR. IT'S NOT A DETAILED STREET BY STREET CHANGE. IT'S A WAY TO PARTNER WITH YOUR NEIGHBORING COMMUNITIES TO SHARE WITH THEM THAT YOU ARE READY TO JOIN THEM IN THE FUTURE THAT THEY ALSO SEEK.

IT'S ALSO A GUIDE POST. ESSENTIALLY, A BLUEPRINT TO THE FUTURE WHAT YOU ASPIRE TO BE. IT'S A CRITICAL DOCUMENT TO RECEIVING FOUN FOUNDATION AND GOVERNMENT FUNDS.

FOUNDATIONS DON'T WHAT ABOUT TO GIVE FUNDS AWAY UNTIL THEY PROVE READINESS AND THIS IS HELPING WORTHINGTON ACHIEVE THAT STATUS. AND ALSO BASICALLY, A WAY TO LOOK AT OUR FUTURE ENGINEERING DOCUMENTS WITH A NEW LENS AND COME UP WITH A BETTER WAY OF INCLUDING ALL PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, ALL PLACE MAKING EVERYTHING.

WHEN YOU HAVE DEVELOPERS OR OTHERS WHO ARE BRINGING SOMETHING TO WORTHINGTON, IT GIVES THEM THE SAME GUIDE POST THAT YOU HAVE SET. WHAT DEVELOPERS NEED MOST IS TO KNOW THEY HAVE A ERTAIN FUTURE AND NOT KNOW IT'S GOING TO GET KICKED BACK FOR WEEKS AND MONTHS.

AND THIS WILL SERVE IN EVERY ONE OF THOSE AREAS.

SO THE I THINK THE IMPORTANT THING IS THERE ARE THINGS THE PLAN IS NOT. IT IS NOT A TOOL TO INTERVENE IN THE PROJECTS YOU ALREADY AVE IN YOUR PIPELINE.

THOSE NEED TO GO FORWARD WITHOUT INTERRUPTIONS.

THIS MARKS A BENCHMARK, A LINE IN THE SAND FOR PROJECTS THAT COME IN THE FUTURE YOU CAN GUIDE WITH THE THOSE PROJECTS WOULD BECOME. IT ALSO IS NOT SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO RAISE THE COST OF PROJECTS THAT ARE IN THAT PIPELINE. IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT DOCUMENT OF MANY THINGS IT WILL DO, BUT IT'S NOT GOING TO INTERRUPT THE VERY CRITICAL AND IMPORTANT PATHWAYS THAT YOU FACE TO DO.

TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO LOOK AT BOTH THE INTRODUCTION TO THE PLAN. TONY IS GOING TO IMMEDIATELY COME IN AND GIVE US THE EXISTING CONDITIONS, WHERE WORTHINGTON IS TODAY. GOOD, CONCISE MEASUREMENTS.

PRESENT RECOMMENDATIONS AND HOW TO IMPLEMENT.

THIS IS AN ACTION PLAN. IT'S A PLAN TO PUT IN MOTION.

[00:55:01]

AND VARIETY OF TOOL BOX AND CONCERT WITH MORPC.

THAT IS SO WELL TIMED AS JENNIFER INDICATED.

WITH THE INTRODUCTION, WE SET IMMEDIATELY THE VISION, THEN THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE PLAN.

AND WE'RE GOING TO WALK YOU THROUGH THE DISCOVERY PHASE WE LED. THAT IS A PROCESS WE LIKE TO FOLLOW. IT GIVES US ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE THAT WHEN WE GET TO THE OTHER PARTS OF THE PLAN WE REALLY ARE WORKING FROM AN INFORMED POSITION.

GETTING TO THE DETAILS HERE, ESSENTIALLY THIS IS OUTLINES WHAT WILL BE COVERED IN THE P PLAN.

JENNIFER DID A SUPERB JOB -- >> LOOKING AT THE CHAPTERS, THIS IS THE CONTENT OF THE PLAN FOR THE SAKE ORYOUR SAN ATE, WE'RE NOT GOING THROUGH EVERY PIECE, AS YOU SEE THIS AND YOU SAW THE PREVIEW OF WHAT THE DRAFT PLAN DOCUMENT HAS, WE'RE GOING TO FOCUS ON SOME OF THE KEY AREAS, REALIZING YOU HAVE THE FULL REFERENCE. SO OU DON'T THINK THINGS ARE MISSING WHEN YOU DON'T SEE THEM.

>> THANK YOU. A COUPLE OF THINGS ABOUT THE PLAN THAT ARE STRONG AND COMPELLING, WE'RE ABLE TO LAY THIS OUT IN OUR APPROACH. NUMBER ONE, IS WE WANT THE PUBLIC TO BECOME WELL-INFORMED OF WHAT HE OPTIONS ARE AND ESSENTIALLY GIVE YOU THE ELECTED LEADERS AND SENIOR STAFF OF THE COMMUNITY WHAT WE CALL GROUND COVER.

WHEN WE INTRODUCE CHANGE ON ANYTHING, IF WE DON'T HAVE A STRONG SUPPORT OF PUBLIC BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T BEEN INFORMED WE FAILED YOU IN USING THE PROCESS.

WE LOVE THE PROCESS WE'RE ABLE TO FOLLOW.

WE ALSO DEVELOPED A METHODOLOGY TO SET PRIORITIES.

WE THINK IT'S BASED ON A VERY SOLID SCIENCE.

IT'S GOING TO GIVE YOU THE RATIONALE OF WHY YOU WOULD PUT A SIDEWALK IN THIS LOCATION R A CROSSWALK AND NOT SOMEWHERE ELSE WHICH WOULDN'T HAVE THE SAME LEVEL OF PRIORITY.

WE WORKED HEAVILY WITH SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOLS.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THERE ARE NEW MONIES AVAILABLE FOR PROJECTS THAT CAN BE ALLOCATED FOR GETTING CHILDREN TO AND FROM SCHOOL. AND IT ALSO WORKS IN CONCERT WITH GUIDANCE FROM THE MORPC, ELEVATING STREET STANDARDS.

IT OESN'T CHANGE THEM IN ONE SENSE.

THE ENGINEERS HAVE LONG RESPECTED BIBLE BUT THIS GIVES NEW TOOLS, NEW APPROACHES AND THEREFORE, PROTECTS THE CITY IF YOU TRY A NEW TOOL YOU ADOPTED IT IT'S SOMETHING THE CITY WAS READY FOR AND SO ON. IT GIVES YOU A FOCUS ON ENCOURAGING BICYCLING AND WALKING.

NOT JUST WHEN THERE IS A CHANCE, WE WANT TO SEE MORE PEOPLE BE ABLE TO USE TRANSIT SUCCESSFULLY, WALK, BIKE, HAVE A CHOICE IN THEIR TRANSPORTATION. IT'S AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT FOR ALL OF THESE REASONS. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE VISION. AND IN THIS SENSE, THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT POINT FOR ME TO MAKE.

AMERICA IS NO LONGER CONSIDERED THE LEADER WHEN IT COMES TO CHOICES IN TRANSPO TRANSPORTATION. IN FACT, IT'S BEEN DECADES. WE'RE COMING FROM BEHIND HAVE BETTER WALKING AND BICYCLING CONDITIONS.

WE BECAME OBESE, TWO OUT OF THREE AMERICANS IN THE FUTURE WILL BE OBESE BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE A NATURAL WAY TO GET ACTIVITY ON A DAILY BASIS BECAUSE WE BUILT WALKING AND BICYCLING OUT OF OURTIMES. INDEED WE'RE RAISING THE FIRST GENERATION OF CHILDREN THAT WON'T LIVE AS LONG AS THEIR PARENTS. THOSE ARE FACTS.

WE WHAT ABOUT TO OVERCOME THAT, CITIES THAT ARE MAKES THESE STRIDES ARE DOING THAT. WE REDUCED CHILDHOOD OBESITY BY 50% IN THE SCHOOLS WITH SOME SIMPLE THINGS IN YOUR PLAN.

WE WANT THE PLAN TO BE STRATEGIC IN ITS APPROACH.

WE WANT IT TO LAYOUT A PATH THAT IS PROGRAMMATIC, WORKINGABLE, SOMETHING YOU AS LEADERS CAN BACK AND SUPPORT.

BUT WE WANT TO GIVE YOU THE STEPS IN THE PATH WAY.

THE PLAN DOES THAT. ESPECIALLY, AGAIN TO GIVE YOU MUCH HIGHER RATES OF WALKING, BICYCLING THEN YOU HAVE TODAY.

WITH THAT, REAL QUICK OVERVIEW OF OUR DISCOVERY PROCESS.

AND I WANT TO GIVE TONY LITTLE FURTHER INTRODUCTION.

[01:00:06]

HE GREW UP WITH MODE MORPC, WORKED THROUGH CITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY AND NOW PART OF OUR TEAM.

TONY. >> AS DAN SAID, WE HAVE THE OOD IMPORTANT IN OHIO OF GIVING BIRT TO THE FATHER -- I WASN'T RAISED BY MORPC, MY FAMILY RAISED ME IN DAYTON.

I WORKED WITH ORPC. AND YOU WANT TO TAKE A SECOND TO SAY, JENNIFER AND TOBY MENTIONED IT'S AN UNUSUAL COLLABORATION BECAUSE WE HAVE TWO PROJECTS WITH TWO SCOPES.

THEY NATURALLY FIT TOGETHER AND IT'S A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH THEM. AND IT MADE OUR PROCESS TAKE LONGER TO GET TO FRUITION BUT THE OUTCOME FOR WORTHINGTON WILL BE OF A GREAT BENEFIT. I'M GOING TO TALK A LOT ABOUT THE MEAT AND TECHNICAL STUFF. I'M GOING TO TRY TO GO THROUGH THINGS EFFECTIVELY TO GIVE YOU THE OVERVIEW.

THERE IS A LOT OF PROCESS AND THINGS THAT HAVE OCCURRED AND GET US TO THE FOCAL POINT. WHAT WE'RE PROPOSING AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT YOU HAVE HAD A PREVIEW OF.

STARTING OUT WITH EVERY PROJECT WE GET THE LAY OF THE LAND, THE LITERATURE VIEW IS AN IMPORTANT PIECE WE CONTINUE AT THIS PHASE TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT EXISTING DOCUMENTATION, TO L LOOK AT OUR CONSISTENCY, NOT JUST FOR WORTHINGTON BUT AROUND WORTHINGTON TO MAKE SURE WE'RE ACCOUNTING THROUGH THESE THINGS AND ONTINUE TO IDENTIFY THINGS PEOPLE BRING TO OUR ATTENTION.

ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS WE LIKE TO DO IS WHAT WE CALL THE DISCOVERY TOUR. I WAS ABLE TO BE HERE BACK IN JUNE WHEN THE WEATHER WAS MUCH NICER, MAYBE A LITTLE TOO HOT.

STAFF AND STAKEHOLDERS, WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE A NUMBER OF STAKEHOLDERS MEETINGS AND DO A GUIDED TOUR TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE ISSUES, OOK AT THE ASSETS AND SOME OF THE THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO BE CHALLENGES FOR THE PLAN AND HAVE A DISCUSSION AROUND THAT AND START TO TALK ABOUT SORT F THE TOOL BOX AND WHAT DO WE WANT TO LOOK AT AS THE PLANNING PROCESS MOVES FORWARD. IN ADDITION TO THAT, THAT'S REALLY SORT OF THE BEGINNING OF WHAT WAS A BROAD ENGAGEMENT PROCESS. I THINK ONE OF THE PRIMARY FOCAL POINTS IS BEING AS ROBUST WITH ENGAGEMENT AS POSSIBLE.

YOU WANT TO MAKE THE MOST F THESE OPPORTUNITIES.

INCLUDING STAKEHOLDERS MEETINGS IN JUNE AND AUGUST.

AUGUST WAS THE CULMINATING POINT, WE HOSTED A LOCAL WORKSHOP. QUITE WELL ATTENDED.

AND SUPPLEMENTING THAT WITH THE WEB-BASED OPPORTUNITIES AND INTERACTIVE MAP TO GIVE US AS MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO GETTING FEEDBACK. AS PROFESSIONALS WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT WE THINK THE CHALLENGES ARE AND HEAR FROM THE COMMUNITY TO ALIDATE THINGS. THERE ARE QUITE A FEW STAKEHOLDERS. WE HAD OPPORTUNITIES TO MEET WITH A LOT OF OUR COMPANION AGE AGENCIES.

THE ADJACENT COMMUNITIES. THERE IS A LOT OF STAKEHOLDERS INVOLVED. WE NEED TO CREATE SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO RESONATE AND BEB ACCEPTABLE FOR THE PARTNERS OF WORTHINGTON. ONE OF THE KEY WORKING ARMS HAS BEEN OUR STEERING COMMITTEE. YOU CAN SEE OUR MEMBERS HERE AND HERE TODAY. WE'LL MEET WITH THEM TOMORROW TO BRING THEM THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHERE THE DRAFT PLAN IS.

THEY HAVE BEEN VALUABLE IN THE FORMING THE PROCESS AS WE START TO THE OUR WORK PLAN, GIVE INPUT AND HELP US TO MAKE SURE WE'RE SHAPING THE PLAN IN A WAY THAT IS RELEVANT.

WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT THE ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES, BEGIN, IN AUGUST WE REALLY HAD OUR PRIMARY FOCUS BOTH DAN AND I WERE IN TOWN FOR THREE DAYS. STARTING WITH WALK AUDITS, THE WORKSHOP, ENGAGING FOLKS, THE COMMUNITY WORKSHOP.

ANYTHI THINK WE HAD 25 FOLKS, WE HAD THEM IDENTIFY ISSUES AND GO THROUGH PRIORITIZATION OF THAT.

AND ALSO WORKED DIRECTLY AS TEAMS AN MAPS AND LOOK AT THE COMMUNITY AND TELL US THE THINGS THAT ARE THEIR ISSUES AND GIVE US THEIR PERSPECTIVE. THAT'S CUP -8D WITH OTHER EFFORTS WE STARTED TO SEE COMMON THEMES -- COUPLED -- TO TAKE

[01:05:04]

ADVANTAGE OF THE 614 FESTIVAL WHICH TURNED OUT TO E A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO ENCOUNTER EOPLE WHO AREN'T GOING TO COME TO MEETINGS, HAVE THEM GIVE INPUT AND CONVERSATIONS.

I THINK CILIA GETS THE AWARD FOR GETTING PEOPLE TO PUT THINGS DOWN AND RECORDING THAT FOR THE TEAM.

SO THANK YOU, CILIA. AND WE MENTIONED BEFORE, I DO THINK THE USE OF THE INTERACTIVE WEB MAP HAD A OOD OPPORTUNITY TO SUPPLEMENT PLANNING. PEOPLE WERE ABLE TO DO TO THE WEB SITE. FOLKS CAN GO ONLINE AND PUT LINES IN SPOTS INTERACTIVELY AND PUT FEEDBACK STRAIGHT INTO THE MAP. THE SUCCESS HERE WITH THE 350 UNIQUE LOG INS, OVER 590 COMMENTS FOR A CITY OF THIS SIZE THAT IS A ROBUST RESPONSE. THE NICE THING ABOUT THAT IS WE'RE ABLE TO TAKE THAT AS THE MAP FILE ITSELF, AND ALSO TAKE THE STUFF WE TOOK FROM THE WORKSHOPS, CODE IT INTO THE MAP SO IT'S ONE REPOSITORY OF FEEDBACK.

WHEN WE START TO LOOK AT WHAT WE WANT TO RECOMMEND AND DEVELOPING WHAT A NETWORK LOOKS LIKE FOR WORTHINGTON WE USE THIS LAYER TO GO THROUGH EVERY BIT OF DATA TO START TO THINK ABOUT WHERE ARE THE CONNECTIONS THAT MAKE SENSE.

IT IS A HELPFUL TOOL. IT'S KIND OF A MESSY MAP WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT THIS WAY. THIS GETS US TO HOW WE UNDERSTAND AND SUMMARIZE THE EXISTING CONDITIONS.

THIS IS OW THE CHAPTERS LAYS OUT IN TERMS OF CONTENT.

THIS IS A LENGTHY CHAPTER. SO I'M NOT GOING THROUGH THE SPECIFIC SLIDES. BUT IT REALLY IS, WE WANTED TO TAKE TIME TO LOOK AT THE KEY QUARTERS AS A TEAM TO UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES WE'RE SEEING AND HEARING ABOUT THEM BEFORE WE GO FORWARD WITH THESE RECOMMENDATIONS.

ONE OF THE 1ST THINGS WE IDENTIFIED IN THE PROCESS IN OUR FIRST MEETING WITH THE STEERING COMMITTEE WAS LOOKING T THE CITY FROM A BIG FRAMEWORK. I AM THE ONE WHO CREATES THE CRUDE MAP AT THE TOP. I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT THE SIGNIFICANT BARRIERS THAT ARE PHYSICAL, HIGHWAYS, RIVER, RAILROADS AND BUSY ROADWAYS. WHEN WE SEE THAT, WE REALIZE AND WHAT YOU SEE AT THE BOTTOM IS UNDERSTANDING THAT IT CREATES SIX WORTHINGTONS FOR US. AS A TEAM WE THOUGHT THAT IS A CHALLENGE BECAUSE THE CITY OF WORTHINGTON IS 5.5 SQUARE MILES IN SIZE. ANYBODY IN THE COMMUNITY SHOULD BE ABLE TO WALK OR BICYCLE TO THE DOWNTOWN IN 15 MINUTES.

THAT IS CONNECTION IS NOT ALWAYS VIABLE.

IT HELPED US FOCUS, HOW TO MAKE WORTHINGTON IS CONNECTED COMMUNITY AGAIN. I SHOULD CAVEAT, IT IS NOT SOLVING ALL THE PROBLEMS. IT'S THE STEPS TOWARDS TRYING TO RECONCILE THAT. EXISTING BICYCLE FACILITIES ARE QUITE GOOD. THERE IS A RICH PROXIMITY TO FRAM TRAILS AND SITS. ASSETS.

THERE ARE PARTS OF THE CITY WHERE IT'S DIFFERENT.

IT GREATS BARRIERS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO.

HOW TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR FOLKS WHO WANT TO BICYCLE AND WALK IN WORTHINGTON. IF YOU SEE THIS MAP, WE HAVE HERE, YOU SEE THE GREEN LINES THERE.

THOSE WERE EXISTING BIKE FACILITIES IN THE INVENTORY.

AND THE STRIPED LINES ARE ALREADY IDENTIFIED AT THE REGIONAL LEVEL OR WORTHINGTON AS DESIRED BIKE ROUTES.

YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE EXISTING FACILITIES ARE ALL ENCOMPASSES AROUND WORTHINGTON BUT WE HAVE A LOT OF CONNECTIONS TO MAKE WITHIN WORTHINGTON. THAT'S WHERE WE THOUGHT THERE WAS GOING TO BE A BIG GAIN FOR THIS PROJECT.

PEDESTRIAN FACILITIES, WORTHINGTON IS AN HISTORIC COMMUNITY BUILT IN A WAY THAT IS MADE FOR WALKING.

THERE IS GREAT WALKABILITY HERE BUT AT THE SAME TIME CHALLENGES. THE DOWNTOWN IS THE POSTER CHILD FOR WALKING IN CENTRAL OHIO. AS YOU GET FURTHER OUT OF DOWNTOWN, CONDITIONS CHANGE SIGNIFICANTLY.

YOU HAVE THINGS THAT MAKE IT A LITTLE MORE UNCOMFORTABLE.

HIGH STREET STARTS TO SHOW YOU THE FEELING IS DIFFERENT AND YOU DON'T WANT TO WALK FURTHER. WE HAVE A NUMBER OF STREETS WHERE THERE WEREN'T SIDEWALKS PUT IN.

WE'RE NOT LOOKING TO PRESCRIBE THAT.

WE'RE LOOKING AT OPPORTUNITIES THAT STREETS THAT ON'T HAVE SIDEWALKS CAN ACCOMMODATE WALKING WITHOUT RETROFITTING.

WHAT ARE THE BARRIERS WHERE THE KEY ISSUES WHEN PEOPLE WANT TO

[01:10:04]

CONNECT BETWEEN COMMUNITIES. AND REALIZING SIDEWALK PROJECTS CAN OCCUR. IF YOU TRY TO DEVELOP A LAN AROUND SIDEWALKS WE WOULD HAVE A BIG PRICE TAG AND A LIST THE STAFF IS PROBABLY NOT READY TO WORK ON.

YOU CAN SEE THE MAP ON THE EXISTING WORK.

THERE IS A ROBUST AMOUNT. I THINK CITIES OULD ENVY THIS AMOUNT OF SIDEWALKS AND CONNECTIONS.

THIS IS THROUGH A GRID STRUCTURE.

THERE ARE CHALLENGES AS YOU GET TO THE LATER DEVELOPING PARTS OF WORTHINGTON. ABOUT THE FACT THERE IS NO WAY IN OUR OUT SO IT CREATES BARRIERS BETWEEN THE NEIGHBORHOODS. WE ALSO LOOK AT THE OTHER FACTORS, OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO WALK TO PLACES.

WE ANALYSIS THE COMMUNITY IN IN TERMS OF THE KEY DESTINATION AND ACCESS TO TRANSIT.

AND WORTHINGTON, OBVIOUSLY HAS A VERY STRONG SPINE, HIGH STREET SORT OF IS WHERE MOST OF THE ACTIVITY GOES.

THERE ARE NODES AND AREAS ROUND THE COMMUNITY THAT ADDRESS OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL. THIS IS THE ONE THING, AND THIS IS PROBABLY THE DAUNTING MAP. I SHOULD CAVEAT AS YOU LOOK, WE'RE LOOKING AT 14 YEARS OF CRASH DATA.

VEHICLE CRASHES OVERLAID ON THE PEDESTRIAN CRASHES.

YOU SEE A LOT OF CRASHES. THERE IS NOT REALLY AS YOU LOOK AT THE CHART ON THE LEFT, THERE IS NOT REALLY A DOMINATED TREND BECAUSE MOST OF WORTHINGTON S ITS BUILT UP IT'S NOT HIGH GROWTH OR OTHER THING IN TERMS OF TRAFFIC.

IT TENDS TO GO IN CYCLES. BIKE AND PEDESTRIAN CRASHES ARE NOT S PROMINENT AND I GUESS THAT'S A GOOD THING FOR US.

ALSO VEHICLE CRASHES IN COMPLETE STREETS ENVIRONMENT SHOW PLACES WHERE THEY HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES AND LESS HOSPITABLE.

WHEN YOU SEE LOW NUMBERS FOR PEDESTRIAN CRASHES I WILL SAY SEE ARE THE REPORTING CRASHES. THERE IS UNDER COUNTING TO THAT. THERE IS NOT, YOU KNOW, NOT BEEN A BIG EPIDEMIC IN TERMS OF THAT.

IF YOU COMPARE TO COLUMBUS, YOU SEE MORE PARTICULAR IN THE TRAUMA AND ENTIRE TIMEFRAME ONLY ONE FATALITY FOR A PEDESTRIAN.

I THINK IT WAS IN 2006. WHAT I LIKE TO LOOK AT, BICYCLES ARE ONLY 1.6% OF THE CRASHES. OF THERE, HERE ARE ABOUT 5% OF THE INJURIES BECAUSE OF THE VULNERABILITY.

THAT ONE, ONLY FOUR FATALITIES, CONSISTENT WITH NATIONAL TRENDS. DISPROPORTIONATE TO THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES. THIS IS A FOCAL AREA.

I DON'T LIKE TO MAKE THE PLAN AROUND THE CRASHES.

I LIKE TO USE THE CRASHES TO LOOK AT THE SAFETY OPPORTUNITIES WHEN WE DO THE PLAN. WHEN WE LOOKED AT EXISTING CONDITIONS THERE ARE KEY ISSUES WHERE WE HEAR ABOUT THINGS AND POSE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGESMENT WE SEGMENTED THOSE TO THINK ABOUT THOSE. THERE IS A LOT OF DETAIL.

I'M GOING TO GO THROUGH THEM QUICKER.

I THINK YOU FOLKS KNOW MORE ABOUT THE CORRIDORS THAN I DO.

THIS REFLECTS NOT ONLY WHAT THE TEAM DISCOVERED BUT WHAT WE HEARD FROM THE C THE COMMUNITY AND STAKEHOLDERS.

DUBLIN-GRANVILLE AND LINWORTH ROAD, A NUMBER OF CHALLENGES WITH THE INTERSECTION. MANY ERRORS AND OPPORTUNITIES.

VARIOUS PATCH WORK IMPROVEMENTS THAT DON'T ADDRESS GOOD NEEDS FOR BICYCLES OR PEDESTRIANS. WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT PARTICULARLY WITH THE NEWER RAMPS INSTALLED WITH THE PROJECTED THERE CURRENTLY ISN'T PED HEADS INSTALLED.

YOU CAN WALK ACROSS BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE THE WALK PHASE. ON THE LEFT YOU SEE THIS RAMP GOES WHERE THIS IS A POSTED NO PEDESTRIAN CROSSING TO A PERSON WHO CAN'T SEE THEY DON'T KNOW THERE IS NO PEDESTRIAN CROSSING. THEY HAVE A RAMP HAT TELLS THEM THAT'S HOW THEY GET THERE. SAY THESE ARE ISSUES. 6,- WE HAVE PROJECTS WHERE THINGS HAPPEN FOR DIFFERENT REASONS.

WHEN WE LOOK AT COMPLETE ST STR STREETS, THIS IS ACTUALLY PRETTY TYPICAL AROUND THE COUNTRY TO START TO SEE

[01:15:04]

LOCATIONS WHERE THERE IS THINGS WE OVER LOOK.

DUBLIN-GRANVILLE THIS IS AN AREA OF GREA IMPORTANCE IN TERMS OF -- IT'S NOT WHERE YOU WANT TO INTEGRATE FOLKS.

THERE IS RECENT EFFORTS TO CREATE A BETTER ALTERNATE CONNECTION MORE FORMALIZED TO GIVE PEOPLE A ROUTE TO CONNECT FROM THE TRAIL AND GET TO CONNECTIONS THAT GET THEM TO OLD WORTHINGTON. ADDITIONALLY, A LOT OF ATTENTION AND SUPPORT AROUND CROSSINGS. THIS IS WHERE THEY LOOKED AT THE ISSUES AND DONE SOLUTIONS. THERE IS ALSO PROBABLY MORE THAT CAN BE DONE. WITH SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AND TRY TO ADAPT THE SOLUTIONS. AND I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THE AREAS WHERE IT'S A MONITORING AND TRYING TO HELP WORK WITH PEOPLE. I REALIZE THE PUBLIC THINKS WE WANT AN INSTANT SOLUTION. THERE IS MORE COMPLEX THINGS TO CONSIDER. WE NEED TO BE THOUGHTFUL HOW WE TRY TO ADDRESS THEM. EAST DUBLIN-GRANVILLE IS INTERESTING BECAUSE IT'S SUCH A CONTRAST AS YOU COME OUT OF DOWNTOWN. IT'S SOMEWHAT OF A MORE WORTHINGTON CHARACTERISTICS STREET ROADWAY.

IT'S A LITTLE WIDE. THERE IS NOT ACILITIES BUT IT REALLY IS A MUCH MORE, I THINK, CIVILIZED STREET.

BUT AS SOON AS YOU GET PAST THE BRIDGE AND MAKE YOUR TRANSITION TO COLUMBUS, IT TURNS INTO A MASSIVE SUBURBAN ARTERIAL STYLE. HOW DO PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THEY TRANSITION AS THEY COME TO WORTHINGTON AND KNOW THIS IS A PLACE TO DRIVE SLOW LALY AND WATCH FOR KIDS.

THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN BE DUBLIN-GRANVILLE AND HIGH STREET, THE CROSSING WORKS GREAT BUT FOLKS ARE CONCERNED. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO ADDRESS IT. SOME OF THE RECENT IMPROVEMENTS BY THE HYBRID BEACON SIGNALS TO PROMOTE GOOD CROSSINGS AT MIDBLOCK LOCATIONS, THEY ARE AHEAD OF THE PLAN IMPROVING THE WALKABILITY. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE VIGILANT ABOUT THE INTERSECTION AND NOT ALLOWING OTHER THINGS TO EXACERBATE ISSUES AND PROBLEMS. NORTH HIGH STREET, I THINK THE INTERESTING PART IS YOU LEAVE FROM THE GREEN AND UP HERE TO THE CITY HALL, THE CONTEXT CHANGES BLOCK TO BLOCK.

IT'S QUITE NICE AND WALKABLE TO AN EXTENT.

AS YOU GO, YOU LOSE SEPARATION AND TRAFFIC SPEED PICK UP.

BY THE TIME YOU GET PASSED HERE IT TURNED INTO A PLACE WHERE YOU DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO WALK. YOU WILL NOTICE, YOU SEE SOMEBODY WALKING THERE, THEY ARE NOT THE CHOICE WALKER.

I THINK THAT'S AN AREA WE LOOK AT HOW TO EXTEND THE HIGH STREET TO MAKE IT MORE WORTHINGTON CHARACTER.

AND REALIZE WE'RE GETTING UP TO WILSON BRIDGE ROAD, WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF ISSUES BUT RECLAIMING THE CONTEXT ALONG THE CORRIDOR. SOUTH HIGH STREET, I REALIZE I'M CALLING IT THAT EVEN THOUGH IT'S NORTH HIGH STREET. FOR ARE OUR PURPOSES, OBVIOUSLY, HIGH STREET IN OLD WORTHINGTON IS THE WONDERFUL SPOT.

THE PLACE WHERE PEOPLE SHOULD ABANDONED THEIR CARS AND EXPERIENCE ALL THE GREAT STUFF WORTHINGTON HAS TO OFFER.

YOU COULD DO NOTHING AND THAT'S WONDERFUL.

THERE IS ALWAYS THINGS TO HELP ENCOURAGE THAT AND MAKE THE CONNECTION. ONCE WE JUST GET ASSED SOUTH STREET IT GOES FROM A SHOWCASE TO A PLAIN AND ORDINARY AND UNATTRACTIVE STREET. TO THOW DO YOU KNOW YOU ARRIVED? THAT COULD BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A MODEL STREET TO HELP SAY THIS IS HOW WORTHINGTON IS.

SLOW DOWN. WE LIVE HERE. WORTHINGTON-GALENA ROAD, AND SCHROCK THEY ARE CERTAINLY ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR ROUTES.

IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF REGIONAL DESTINATIONS.

IT ALSO HAS JUST TRANSFORMING STREET STRUCTURE, VERY NARROW ROADWAYS. AN INTERESTING HISTORY WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE GUARD RAILS AT A RESIDENTIAL DEFENSE.

THE STREET SEEMS UNSAFE TO THEM.

THIS IS THE AREA WHERE LONG TERM, THE COMPLETE STREET OOL

[01:20:06]

FIGURES OUT HOW TO GET THE THING WE WANT.

I'M MAKING NO BONES ABOUT THE FACT WE'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING IN TWO YEARS THAT WILL FIX WORTHINGTON AND GALENA.

THERE IS A MTHERE IS A PROJECT TO DO MAINTENANCE.

IT'S NOT GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

WE START TO LOOK FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADDRESS WHEN WORTHINGTON-GALENA GETS TO THAT POINT THAT IS A CRITICAL CONNECTOR. WILSON BRIDGE ROAD I THINK IS ONE OF THE GREAT THINGS, IT'S ALREADY GOT SOME GREAT ASSETS.

IT'S GOT GREAT POTENTIAL AND COMMIT TODAY A DIRECTION THAT IS GOING TO MAKE SENSE ON THE WEST SIDE.

WE HAVE A FULL BICYCLE CONNECTION THERE.

THE PLAN WILL CALL FOR WAYS TO IMPROVE, INCREASE THE QUALITY OF THAT. AND CONSISTENCY.

BUT IT'S NICE. IT'S ONE OF THE NEWER AND GOOD CONNECTIONS TO GET PEOPLE FROM THE SHOPPING CENTER TO THE TRAIL. TRAIL ACCESS IS A GREAT THING.

HOPEFULLY SPURS ON A REGIONAL LEVEL THAT CONNECTIVITY TO LINWORTH ROAD AND STARTS TO ADDRESS THOSE.

ON THIS SIDE, THE STREET HAS BETTER OPPORTUNITY.

I THINK TH THERE IS A LOT THAT CAN BE DONE.

IT COULD BE RESTRIPED FOR BIKE LANES.

THE ACCOMMODATIONS COMING FROM THE GATEWAY PLAN, A SHARED USE BATH ON THE REC CENTER SIDE OF THE ROADWAY.

WE WANT TO TO KEEP CONSISTENCY.

THERE MAY BE OPPORTUNITIES TO DO SOMETHING INTERIM TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE HAVE ACCOMMODATION. BUT I THINK THIS IS ONE OF THOSE A HIGH-GROWTH AREA FOR WORTHINGTON.

TRYING TO MAKE SURE WE GET THE RIGHT BIKE FACILITY AND MAKE THAT CONNECTION IS GOING TO BE KEY.

LINWORTH ROAD IS THE ONE THAT REALLY HAS AN ISSUE.

FOR THE FOLKS THAT LIVE OUT THERE, THIS IS THE ONLY WAY IN AND OUT. AND IT STILL REMAINS AT A RURAL CHARACTER, 22- FOOT EDGE TO EDGE ROADWAY THAT BARELY ACCOMMODATES THE VEHICLE TRAFFIC. WE HAD INITIAL SEGMENTS THE CONNECTION FROM THE INTERSECTION TO THE PARK.

THE PLAN WILL RECOMMEND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO CONTINUE THAT. UNLESS THERE IS A RECONSTRUCTION OF THE ROADWAY WHERE YOU CAN FIT CURB AND GIRTER, A SHARED-USE PATH WOULD BE THE BEST SOLUTION.

THAT IS NOT AN EASY, LOW-HANGING FRUIT SUGGESTION.

IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET BACK AND FORTH.

SO THIS IS JUST ALWAYS, AGAIN, WE WENT THROUGH OUR OBSERVATION OF THESE ISSUES. THESE ARE SOME OF THE TAKE AWAYS AND THEMES WE HEARD FROM STAFF RESONATE WITH WHAT WE'RE SEEING. IT'S RELEVANT.

I THINK THERE IS AN APPETITE AND HUNGER TO ADVANCE SOME OF THESE IDEAS. NOW, I'M GOING TO MOVE INTO WHAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO GET INTO. THE BICYCLE PEDESTRIAN PROJECT RECOMMENDATIONS. THIS IS CHAPTER THREE.

I'M NOT GOING TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN CHAPTER THREE AND FOUR IN THIS PRESENTATION BECAUSE THEY KIND OF MERGE TOGETHER.

CHAPTER FOUR IS ABOUT IMPLEMENTATION.

WE'RE HERE TO GET YOUR FEEDBACK TONIGHT.

AGAIN, I START THIS, AGAIN, GOING BACK TO MORPC.

AND DID COMPLIMENT THEIR WORK. THE COMPLETE STREETS TOPOLOGY IS GREAT FOR US. IT'S CREATING A NEW CLASSIFICATION. THAT GETS AWAY FROM ARTERIAL AND THINGS WE USE FOR VEHICLES. WORTHINGTON HAS A WAY TO CLASSIFY. FOR EVERY ONE OF THESE TYPES OF STREET, A MIXED USE OR RESIDENTIAL STREET, IT DESCRIBES THE VEHICLES, HOW PEDESTRIAN ACCOMMODATION SHOULD BE ACCOMMODATED, THE APPROPRIATE TYPES OF BICYCLE FACILITIES.

FOR US, AS WE START THE RECOMMENDATIONS, WE TOOK THE PROJECTS WE HAVE FOR BIKE PROJECTS, LOOK AT THE COMPLETE STREETS RECOMMENDATION AND THAT'S HOW I START TO SELECT.

WE ACTUALLY PUT THE PLAN ONTO THAT STREET LAYER.

THIS IS THE FRAMEWORK THAT'S GOING TO BE WORKING.

SO THE PLAN FOLLOWS THE COMPLETE STREET.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: QUESTI. UNDER THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN PROJECTS AND THESE SHEETS THAT CAME OUT.

ARE THEY PRIORITY ORDER AS TO WHAT IS RECOMMENDED? IS THE NUMBER ONE RECOMMENDATION?

[01:25:06]

NUMBER TWO -- >> YES AND NO, I WILL GET INTO IT. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE OBNOXIOUS TO TRY TO LOOK AT ON THE SCREEN.

THIS IS THE ONE YOU WOULD WANT TO HAVE THE MOST REFERENCE.

I'LL JUST JUMP INTO THE OTHER STREET TOPOLOGY.

THIS IS THE CRITICAL PART FOR US.

THIS IS THE EXAMPLE. IF YOU LOOK AT DRAFT TYPICAL SECTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED.

THIS IS THE EXAMPLE FOR SAY A MIXED-USE BOULEVARD.

ALLOWS FOR ONE OF A NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES OF A CROSS SECTION YOU WOULD CONSIDER. FROM HE CHART IT GIVES THESE TOOLS. THAT HELPS US TO MAKE DECISION TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY BASED ON THE POLICY WHAT ARE THE APPROPRIATE ELEMENTS. THAT IS THE PART THAT FEEDS THE PLAN. I THINK THAT'S FANTASTIC MOVING FORWARD, FUTURE PROJECTS AS THEY ARISE, GOVERNED BY THE IKE PED PLAN AND THE TOPOLOGY THAT IS DEVELOPED.

GETTING INTO THIS AND BACK TO PRESIDENT MICHAEL'S QUESTION ABOUT THE LISTING THAT WAS PRESENTED.

FOR PURPOSES OF TRYING TO CATEGORIZE THE PROJECTS, WHAT OUR TEAM HAS DONE IS FIRST OF ALL, IDENTIFIED THE PROJECTS AND PRESENTED THOSE TO STAKEHOLDERS IN NOVEMBER TO SAY DOES THIS LIST OF PROJECTS, DOES IT MAKE SENSE AND WE GOT CONSENSUS.

AS E CREATED THOSE INTO ACTUAL PROJECTS, LOOK TO IDENTIFY WHAT THE RECOMMENDATIONS WOULD BE BASED ON THE TOPOLOGY.

AND AS WE LOOK AT THOSE AND E CONSIDER WHAT THE XISTING CONDITION IS AND SOME OF THE CONSTRAINTSES WE BREAK THESE UP INTO WHAT I'LL CALL SHORT, MIDAND LONG RANGE.

THESE ARE NOT TIMEFRAME SPECIFIC.

WE CAN PUT THEM IN, THEY REFLECT SHORT-RANGE PROJECTS ARE MUCH MORE PROJECT READY. AND ACTUALLY HAVE MUCH LOWER COSTS AND THINGS IN THE CAPITAL YEAR T THAT CAN BE IMPLEMENTED RELATIVELY QUICKLY. THE LOW-HANGING FRUIT.

THAT'S WHY WE FOCUSED IN THE SHORT RANGE.

THERE ARE NOR PROJECTS IN THAT SHORT LIST THAN YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH IN THE OTHER PERIOD. WHEN WE GET TO THE MID-RANGE, THEY HAVE HIGHER COSTS AND COMPLICATIONS, CHALLENGES OR PERHAPS MORE OF AN ENGINEERING STUDY TO MAKE SURE WE CAN ACCOMMODATE THINGS. THE LONG-TERM HAVE THE GREATEST CHALLENGES OR THINGS THAT ARE NOT RESOLVED.

IT MAY REQUIRE STUDY OR CAPITAL TO IMPLEMENT.

I DON'T THINK OF THEM AS WE SHOULD THINK THAT'S WHEN THESE ARE GETTING DONE IN FIVE OR 10 YEARS VERSUS 20.

IT'S PUTTING THEM IN MANAGEABLE PEWS.

TO THE PRIORITIZATION THAT IS ON THE LIST.

FOR THE PROJECTS WE TOOK AND CONDUCTED A PRIORITIZATION BASED ON THE INPUT WE HAD FROM STEERING COMMUNITIES AND LOOKING AT THE DATA AVAILABLE. AND I WILL -- I'M GOING TO SKIP AHEAD BECAUSE I'M ALLOWED TO DO THAT.

IF I CAN GET TO IT. SO THIS RIGHT HERE THE SLIDE REPRESENTS, THIS ISN'T IN THE PLAN.

I PUT IT IN HERE FOR REFERENCE TO HELP UNDERSTAND.

FOR THETIC IS A OF PRIORITIZATION.

THERE IS A LOT OF PROJECTS TO CHOOSE FROM.

WE WANT A WAY TO EVALUATE THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER BASED ON THE THINGS WE FOUND WERE IMPORTANT DURING OUR CONVERSATIONS.

WE TOOK CATEGORIES OF SCHOOLS, POPULAR DESTINATIONS, ACCESS TO TRANSIT AND PARKS, CONNECTIONS TO EXISTING NETWORK, CONNECTIONS TO DOWNTOWN WORTHINGTON. SAFETY, COUPLED WITH BIKE AND PED AND AUTOMOBILE CRASHES AND USED THAT TO ANALYZE THE PROJECTS. THAT'S A LOT OF COMPLICATION COMPLEX UFFERING, BASED ON THE SEGMENTS.

NORMALIZE THAT BY THE DISTANCE OF EACH ONE AND APPLYING A WAITING FACTOR. THERE WAS MORE EMPHASIS FOR THINGS LIKE SAFETY AND CONNECTIONS TO SCHOOL.

AND SO THIS SCHEME GIVES US A NUMERICAL SCORE TO THE PROJECTS, THAT IS NOT INTENDED TO PUT THEM IN ORDER OF IMPLEMENTATION.

IT'S TO HELP IDENTIFY HE ONES THAT ARE SCORING HIGHER.

SO WHEN WE START TO BUILD A CHAPTER PROGRAM WE HAVE THAT PIECE OF DISCUSSION NOT JUST HAVE A BLANK LIS REALLY, AND I T PRIORITIZATION IS A MODELING EXERCISE TO HELP YOU IDENTIFY

[01:30:02]

THOSE. IT SHOULDN'T BE THE END ALL BE ALL. AS WE WORK THROUGH HOW THE PLAN IS PUT TOGETHER, WE'LL HELP TO MAKE SURE THAT THE RECOMMENDATIONS UNDERSTOOD IN A WAY THAT THE PRIORITIZATION IDS IN IDENTIFYING KEY PROJECTS BUT DOESN'T HEM THE STAFF INTO SAYING WE HAVE TO DO THESE THREE FIRST AND THESE THREE NEXT.

DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? IT'S A ROUND THE WAY EXPLANATION FOR THAT. AND I EVEN HAVE TROUBLE WITH OUR TEAM MAKING SURE WE'RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE AND REALIZE HOW THE NUMBERS CAN HELP US TO LOOK AT THE PRO PROJECTS ALTOGETHER. THE BICYCLE PROJECTS THAT ARE CATEGORIZED THIS WAY. THIS MAP ACTUALLY DON'T WORRY ABOUT THE COLORS, IT'S TO HELP IDENTIFY, IT'S A MAP KEY AND MAP. TO LOOK AT THE NUMBER FOR ALL THESE. WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT E CAN REFERENCE WHERE THEY ARE AT IN CONTEXT.

SOME OF THE THEM BREAK IN INTERESTING PLACES.

IT'S A REFERENCE PART THAT IS IN THEREMENT WHEN WE DID THE PEDESTRIAN PROJECTS, WE'RE NOT PUTTING TOGETHER A SIDEWALK INFILL. THE CITY ONCE DID AN EXPENSIVE SURVEY TO LOOK AT THE NEEDS. FOR THIS PLAN WE FOCUSED ON ADDRESSING BARRIERS AND THINGS THAT WOULD HURT CONNECTIONS.

LOOKING AT THE FEEDBACK WE HAD, WE SORT OF IDENTIFIED AREAS THAT HAVE UNCONTROLLED CROSSINGS AND POTENTIAL TO ADDRESS PEDESTRIAN NEEDS, SIGNALIZED ROSSINGS, BRIDGES WHICH ARE IMPORTANT, AND GENERAL CONNECTIVITY BARRIERS. WITHIN THIS YOU SEE THE MAP.

I WILL TELL YOU THERE WERE TWO ITEMS ON THE MAP THAT EVEN FROM THE DRAFT DROPPED OUT OF HERE BECAUSE HESE CAME THROUGH FEEDBACK AND IDENTIFIED WISHFUL, WE WISH THERE WERE A WAY TO CONNECT. AND THE REALITY WHAT WE'RE LOOK AT BUILT-OUT IT'S NOT EASIBLE. INSTEAD OF PROJECT WE CAPTURE THE DESIRE AS PART OF RECOMMENDATION.

IT'S NOT APPROPRIATE TO IDENTIFY THEM AS PROJECTS.

THE REST ARE BROKEN INTO THE VARIOUS CATEGORIES BASED ON -- THEY FALL UNDER THE BARRIERS WE LOOKED AT INITIALLY.

IT ALLOWS STAFF FOR LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE CROSSWALK MARKINGS AND THAT'S HOW THOSE GENERATE.

ADDITIONALLY, THOSE WERE SCORED, AND YOU WILL SEE THAT MAP, IN TERMS OF USING THE SAME CATEGORY, PRIORITIZED SO WE CAN EVALUATE THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER.

SO CHAPTER FOUR IS SORT OF, LIKE I SAID, IT WEAVES IN WITH CHAPTER THREE. IT GETS TO HOW WE ADDRESS THE IMPLEMENTATION. THAT'S WHERE PRIORITIZATION HELPS US TO CREATE THE LIST. WITH THIS AND THE FEEDBACK FROM THE STAFF AND STEERING COMMITTEE WILL HELP TO THINK ABOUT HOW WE CATEGORIZE GIVEN THE PRIORITIZATION SO WE CAN START TO THINK OF IS THE CATEGORY MID-TERM, LONG-TERM, WHAT IS MOST EFFECTIVE FOR THE CITY TO REALISTICALLY IMPLEMENT THE PROJECTS IN A WAY THAT IS MEANINGFUL TO ACHIEVING THE PLAN. TO GO PAST WHERE WE WERE.

THIS IS AN ELSTRATION HOW THE PEDESTRIAN PROJECT SCORED.

YOU CAN LOOK AT THE ILLUSTRATION ON THE ONLINE MAP.

OVERALL, YOU CAN SEE SOME DISCREPANCIES IN THOSE.

AND SO THAT'S COVERING THE INFRASTRUCTURE.

WE HAVE ONE MORE SECTION. WE DON'T WANT TO OVER LOOK THE OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS PROGRAMMATICALLY.

WE'LL WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE PROJECTS AS A GROUP.

I'M GOING TO HAND IT OVER TO DAN TO TALK ABOUT SOME OF THE NONENGINEERING THINGS TO SUPPORT THE PLAN.

>> THANKS. I THINK IT'S A KEY POINT WE CAN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEMS WE CREATED WITH ENGINEERING, WE CAN'T SOLVE WITH PLANNING. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING HOLISTICALLY. I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU A LIGHT SHOWCASE OF THE OTHER THINGS WE'RE LOOKING AT.

OBVIOUSLY, INTEGRATING INTO THE COMPLETE STREETS TOOL KIT THAT

[01:35:03]

MORPC IS PROVIDING FOR US. AGAIN, THIS IS STATE OF THE ART FOR CENTRAL OHIO TO HAVE SUCH A KEY SET OF DOCUMENTS IS STILL THE RARITY IN OUR COUNTRY. WORTHINGTON IS FORTUNATE TO BE PARTNERING WITH MORPC IN TIME, IN PLACE TO MAKE THIS WORK. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PART.

I MENTIONED SAFE ROUTES TO SCHOOL.

YOU HAVE WONDERFUL SCHOOLS AND WELL LOCATED.

BUT LITTLE TWEAKS NEED TO BE MADE AT EVERY SCHOOL, IF PARENTS ARE GOING TO DRIVE THEIR KIDS TO SCHOOL BUT OTHERS FEEL IT'S UNSAFE FOR CHILDREN. SPECIFIC GUIDANCE ON WHAT CAN BE DONE ON SCHOOLS, HOW TO DO THE STUDIES AND HOW TO APPLY FOR FUNDING AND WHEN IS THE MODEL PROJECT.

>> BECOMING AN AGE-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY IS TOP -- WELL, ON MY LIST. I'LL JUST SAY, WHEN WE GET A LITTLE BIT OLDER, WALKING BECOMES A CHALLENGE. IF YOU HAVE SLIPPERY BRICK OR UNEVEN SURFACES OR POORLY LIT AREAS, PEOPLE CAN NO LONGER WALK. WE HAVE TO BE VERY GENUINE IN HOW WE APPROACH THE GUIDANCE THAT THE STRATEGIC PLAN COLUMBUS CREATED. AND HOW THAT MIGHT GET PUT FORTH AS A MODEL IN WORTHINGTON FOR THE WHOLE GREATER CENTRAL OHIO AREA. WE CONSIDER THIS A VERY IMPORTANT PARTNERSHIP. AND THEN GOING OUT AND FINDING THE FUNDING. MORE AND MORE FUNDS ARE BEING IDENTIFIED BOTH IN OHIO AND NATIONWIDE THAT CAN BE TAPPED INTO. WE THINK ONE OF THE GREATEST OUTCOMES OF THIS PLAN IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO GO AFTER VERY SIGNIFICANT SUMS OF MONEY THAT WILL EITHER ENHANCE YOUR EXISTING PROJECTS OR GIVE YOU BRAND-NEW PROJECTS YOU CAN GO OUT. THIS IS JUST A LISTING OF WHERE SOME OF THESE GRANTS ARE BEING FOUND.

AND THEY ARE JUST MORE AND MORE ORGANIZATIONS NOW RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF WALKING AND BIKING.

AN IMPORTANT ISSUE TOO IS TO DESIGN STREETS THAT CAN BE ENFORCED AND THEN HAVE PROPER ENFORCEMT.

PLEASE CANNOT GO OUT AND WRITE TICKETS FOR SOMETHING WHERE THE STREET SAYS GO 40 AND THE SIGN SAYS 25.

WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE OUR ENGINEERING SUPPORTS THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS CAN VERY STRATEGICALLY START TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

>> WHAT DO YOU MEAN A STREET WOULD SAY 40 BUT A SIGN WOULD

SAY 25? >> IT'S POSTED 25.

BUT THE WAY THE ROAD READ YOU WANT TO GO 40 BECAUSE THE

ENGINEERS -- >>

>> R. DOROTHY:

>> THOSE ARE GOOD EXAMPLES. WE WANT TO PUT FORTH STRATEGIES FOR COMBINING EDUCATION AND TRAINING.

A LOT OF TRAINING COURSES ARE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR PROFESSIONALS, FROM COMPLETE STREETS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AND VIRTUALLY EVERY AREA. THE MORE TRAINING PEOPLE RECEIVE THE MORE THEY WANT TO GO OUT AND PUT TO RACTICE WHAT THEY O.

ONE OF THE MY PERSONAL FAVORITES, IT'S BECOMING A VERY BIG OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS, POP-UPS OR TECHNICAL -- WHAT DO WE CALL THEM? TACTICAL URBANISM. THESE CAN BE A WEEKEND OR THEY CAN BE SEVERAL WEEKS IN LENGTH AND SOME CAN ACTUALLY BE A LONGER-TERM OPERATION. UNTIL PEOPLE SAY WE LIKE THIS, CAN YOU TWEAK THESE THINGS AND BUILD IT ON THIS STREET AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT ON OTHER STREETS AS WELL.

THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN AWARDS.

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT ONE. TO BECOME CONSIDERED A BICYCLE-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY. THE LEAGUE OF AMERICAN BICYCLISTS PUT A LOT OF ENERGY INTO COMING UP WITH THE SCORING. IF YOU FOLLOW THE KEY ELEMENTS OF THE PLAN YOU WILL BE IN A POSITION TO BE CERTIFIED AS A BICYCLE-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY. WALK AMERICA DOES THE SAME WITH WALKING. YOU HAVE TWO WAYS OF CORING

[01:40:01]

YOURSELVES AND ELEVATING YOURSELVES ABOVE YOUR CURRENT

STRATEGY. >> I WOULD EMPHASIS ONE OF THE VALUES IS THE EXERCISE OF ITSELF.

SORT OF SELF-ASSESSING AND HAVING TO HONESTLY ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT CONDITIONS IN THE COMMUNITY AS PART OF AN

OWN ON-GOING BENCHMARK. >> SNOW REMOVAL.

WE'RE GLAD YOU INVITED US IN TO EXPERIENCE YOUR SNOW.

SO MANY THINGS THAT CAN BE DONE.

CURRENT POLICIES AND PRACTICES CAN BE BETTER ENFORCED OR MODIFIED TO MAKE WALKING A MUCH EASIER TASK.

AGAIN, IT'S AN ALL-SEASON THING WE NEED TO BE FOCUSED ON.

I WANT TO CLOSE MY OPPORTUNITY SPEAKING BEFORE YOU TO SAY, THIS IS THE GREATEST TIME TO BE INVOLVED IN TRANSPORTATION IN AMERICA. FOR MANY DECADES WE WERE FOLLOWING WHAT OUR PREDECESSORS DID AND IT GOT US INTO A SEVERE PROBLEM. IT'S THE DECISION MAKERS AND STAFF TODAY THAT CAN SET A NEW COURSE.

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SILVER BULLET, BUT THERE IS A SILVER BUCK SHOT. WE WANT TO EMPHASIS, GIVING YOU ALL THE TOOLS AND APPROACHES THAT ARE GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO BECOME ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE PLACES TO WALK OUR BICYCLE IN ALL OF AMERICA. SO WE LIKE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.

COUNCILMEMBERS, ANYBODY? MS. KOWALCZYK.

>> B. KOWALCZYK: I HAVE SPECIFIC COMMENTS BUT I'M NOT SURE THEY ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THIS. SUBMIT PROJECTS WEBSITE --

MIC] >> I THINK EVERYBODY HERE CONVERSATION, DIRECTLY WITH THE TEAM OR DARREN.

BUT REALLY, HONESTLY, REALIZE WE'RE GIVING YOU A LOT TO PROCESS AND DIGEST. THIS IS SORT F AN OPENING.

BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS AND HEAR FEEDBACK. A FEEDBACK LOOP.

AS WE START TO FINALIZE THE PLAN, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM COUNCIL WE'RE TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION YOUR THOUGHTS.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: IS THERE A MAP OR TWO MAPS THAT ARE COLOR-CODED BY, THESE ARE THE TOP-PRIORITIES.

ARE THEY COLOR-CODED BY THE TYPE OF STREET.

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS IS HERE ARE THE FIRST 10 OR THE TOP 10 IN BLUE. 15, 10 TO 20 IN GREEN.

SO THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOOK AND QUICKLY SEE WHEN PEOPLE ARE LOOK AT AS THE PRIORITIES. BECAUSE RIGHT NOW IT'S BY THE STREET. THEN YOU HAVE TO GO CAREN AVENUE FROM HERE DO HERE. YOU HAVE TO CHASE DOWN THE MAP TO SEE EXACTLY WHERE THE TOP PRIORITIES ARE.

>> THE ANSWER IS, THERE CAN BE. THERE ISN'T THAT SPECIFIC MAP.

THAT IS ONE OF THE NUANCED TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PRESENT THE INFORMATION IN BOTH VISUAL AND LIST WAY.

I CAN GO BACK. THE CLOSEST THING WE HAVE IS JUST THE WHAT I WOULD CALL REVERSE HEAT MAP OF THE PROJECTS, WHICH WAS THE PRIORITIZATION MAP.

AND T GIVES YOU A SENSE OF, IT'S NOT PUTTING THEM INTO THOSE CATEGORIES BUT A TEMPERATURE CODE BASED ON HOW THEY SCORED.

THAT'S THE CLOSEST THING THAT GIVES US A BETTER UNDERSTANDING

OF THE COMPARISON. >> B. KOWALCZYK: WE HEARD FROM MORPC EPRESENTATIVES EARLIER, JENN AND TOBY, THANK YOU.

ABOUT THE INCREASE OF POPULATION IN CENTRAL OHIO, MORPC REGION.

HOW WILL THIS HELP OUR TRAFFIC ISSUE?

>> I THINK, FIRST OF ALL, IT'S NOT THE SOLUTION TO THE TRAFFIC ISSUE. BECAUSE IT'S A MUCH MORE COMPLICATED. BUT I THINK IT'S THE BEGINNING OF CREATING THE ALTERNATIVES. MORPC'S POINT IS WE'RE EXPECTING AN UNUSUALLY LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE COMING TO THE REGION.

COMMUNITIES WHO CREATE SITUATIONS WHERE THERE ARE OPTIONS FOR MOBILITY WILL BE WINNERS AND ALLOWED THE DOWN SIDES WHERE COMMUNITIES THAT DON'T PREPARE FOR THIS WILL BE INUNDATED WITH MORE PEOPLE AND CARS AND TRAFFIC.

THAT SAID, WE DO ALSO REALIZE THAT WORTHINGTON DOESN'T GET TO EXIST ON AN ISLAND. AND SO THOSE WILL COME.

AS THOSE PEOPLE WILL COME THROUGH AND ACROSS WORTHINGTON LIKE THEY DO TODAY. BEING BIKE FRIENDLY WILL HELP FOLKS AND MAKE WORTHINGTON ATTRACTIVE. THAT IS SOMETHING TO BE VIGILANT ABOUT. HOW TO MAKE SURE, THERE IS ONLY

[01:45:02]

SO MUCH CONTROL OF THE IMPACTS OF REGIONAL TRAFFIC HERE.

THAT IS ALSO A REASON TO HAVE A VOICE IN THE CONVERSATION.

IT DOES EFFECT US ALL. >> B. KOWALCZYK: I WAS HOPING YOU WOULD EMPHASIS THERE IS DIFFERENT FORMS OF TRAFFIC.

TRANSPORTATION IS MORE THAN SINGLE OCCUPANCY AUTOS.

AND YOU CAN HAVE TRAFFIC FROM PEOPLE OUT ON THE STREET.

>> IT'S LIKE THE HDL AND THERE BAD CHOLESTEROL.

THIS WILL HELP YOU GET MORE OF THE GOOD KIND OF TRAFFIC.

I WILL SAY THAT WITH THE GREAT NUMBERS OF PEOPLE MOVING CENTRAL OHIO AND I SUSPECT THOSE PROJECTIONS ARE SPOT ON.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE LAND USE AS A FULL PARTNER YOU DO NOTHING BUT ADD TO TRAFFIC. I WILL GIVE YOU TWO EXAMPLES.

THE PRINCIPLE IS THE SAME. CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, QUADRUPLED THEIR POPULATION AND GUT THEIR TRAFFIC AT THE SAME TIME. LESS TRAFFIC THEN BEFORE THEY MULTIPLIED THEIR POPULATION BECAUSE THEY FOCUSED ON THE RIGHT TRANSPORTATION SOLUTIONS TO GIVE PEOPLE A CHOICE AND THE RIGHT HOUSING STOCK AND HE RIGHT LOCATIONS.

SO WHATEVER YOUR FUTURE HOUSING NEEDS ARE, WHERE YOU PUT THE HOUSING IS AS IMPORTANT AS ANYTHING ELSE YOU DO.

THE OTHER TOWN IS VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, MULTIPLIED THEIR DENSITY, NUMBER OF PEOPLE WERE CRE ROUGHLY FIVE TIMES.

IT'S NOW THE MOST WALKABLE, LIVABLE CITY IN THE WORLD.

THEY TRADE BACK AND FORTH WITH MELBOURNE.

THEY WERE ABLE TO BUILD ENOUGH PLACES PEOPLE COULD WALK, BIKE AND TRANSIT TO THAT PEOPLE FIND IT A NUISANCE TO GET INTO A CAR. YOU DON'T NEED TO SEE AN INCREASE IN ACTUAL TRAFFIC IF THESE THINGS ARE DONE IN

CONCERT. >> D. FOUST: I HEARD A LOT OF FUTURE TENSE TONIGHT. IS THIS A FINISHED PRODUCT?

IF NOT, WHAT IS NEXT? >> THIS IS THE DRAFF PLAN.

CONSIDER EVERYTHING FROM OUR PURPOSES, WE THINK WE HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB. BUT IT'S ALL IN PENCIL.

SUBJECT TO, BECAUSE EVENTUALLY IT COMES BEFORE YOU TO BE ADOPTED. RIGHT NOW THIS IS OUR STAB WITH A DRAFT. WE WANT TO DOT THE "IS" AND CROSS THE "TS." I WOULD LIKE TO SAY AT THE 90% MARK WE HAVE GOTTEN THROUGH THE PROJECT, I THINK WHAT WE HAVE IS VETTED THROUGH THE COMMUNITY. HOPEFULLY RESPONDING TO THE THINGS WE HAVE AD. WITH THAT SAID, IT'S STILL SOMETHING WE'RE DOING THIS FOR THE COMMUNITY. WE'RE LOOKING

FOR -- >> D. FOUST: I SEE IN THIS SORT OF DUAL PRIORITIZATION AND THE SECOND PRIORITY I DON'T SEE HERE, AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S WITHIN THE SCOPE OF THIS OR NOT. THERE IS A PRIORITY OF ACCOMPLISHING THE GOAL OF ALTERNATIVE MOBILITY.

THEN THERE IS THE DUAL GOAL OF PAYING FOR IT.

WILL THERE BE A POINT WHERE WE SEE PROJE PROJECTIONS.

>> YOU WILL SEE IT'S OPINIONS. WE'RE NOT GOING TO DETAILED ENGINEERING COST. BASED ON THE TYPES OF ASSUMPTIONS WE GIVE YOU THE RANGE OF COST.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WE'LL HAVE A GENERAL IDEA.

THAT'S WHAT I STRUGGLE WITH. I THINK WE'RE COMMITTED TO THE CONCEPT. WE HAVE LIMITED RESOURCES.

WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT COMPLETE STREETS, IF WE'RE GOING TO DO A NEW DEVELOPMENT IN NORTH EAST GATEWAY, IT'S EASY TO DO IT THEN. IF WE'RE TALKING ABOUT POSSIBLY PUT A BOULEVARD ON NORTH HIGH STREET TO SLOW TRAFFIC DOWN,

IT'S A DIFFERENT ANIMAL. >> YEAH, AND THAT'S THE WAY, WE WANT TO BOTH GIVE YOU THE COST AND HOW TO IDENTIFY IMMEDIATE PROJECTS AND REALIZING THERE IS LIMITED RESOURCES.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: THE WHOLE BUDGET THIS YEAR.

>> WITH THE LARGER PROJECTS WE WANT TO GIVE YOU A REASONABLE

[01:50:02]

ASPIRATIONAL ASK, HAT KIND OF FIGURE TO GET THIS DONE SO WE CAN THINK ABOUT -- LOW-HANGING FRUIT IS GOOD TO CHECK OFF BUT WE DON'T WANT TO FORGET THE BIGGER THINGS ON THERE.

FOR US, THAT'S WHAT WE WANT TO DO.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO PUT THE ITEMIZED LINEAR COST.

WE'LL LOOK AT THE RANGES. WE NEED TO ASK FOR THIS LEVEL OF MONEY. AND THEN, BUT WE ALSO NEED TO LOOK AT THE PROJECTS THAT RIGHT HERE SO WE CAN FIGURE OUT IF WE

CAN GET THREE OF THEM DONE. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WHAT KIND OF TIMELINE ON THE COST PROJECTIONS?

>> 'LL CALL THEM COST ASSUMPTIONS OR OPINIONS BECAUSE WE'RE NOT DOING ENGINEERING PROJECTIONS.

AS WE LOOK AT HOW WE'RE PACKAGING THE PROJECTS AND LOOKI LOOKING AT EACH OF THEM, THAT WOULD BE WITHIN I THINK FROM 30 DAYS FOR PUBLIC COMMENT.

THAT IS YOUR DISCRETION AS WELL. >> PRESIDENT MICHAEL, E'RE FINISHING MORE PUBLIC INPUT TOMORROW.

WE'LL OPEN IT UP ONLINE FOR A PERIOD OF A FEW WEEKS AND THEY CAN START REDRAFTING. WE'RE LOOKING FOR TWO THINGS FOR WHAT IS OING TO TAKE THIS FROM 90 TO 100%.

INCORPORATE THE FEEDBACK. WE'LL HEAR FROM THE STEERING COMMITTEE TOMORROW. IS IT PACKAGED IN A WAY THAT IS USEFUL FOR US DOWN THE ROAD AS WELL AS THE CONTENT ITSELF.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: WE'RE LOOKING UTO AT DOING A FINAL APRIL, MAY? WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT AGENDAS MOVING OUT FURTHER. --

>> WHAT IS THE BIKE BOULEVARD. THAT TERM CAME UP.

>> THIS IS -- THIS IS MORE OF SOME NEW TERMINOLOGY.

ONE OF THE THINGSY WE SHIFTED TO THE IDEA OF UNDERSTANDING USER'S PERCEPTION WE LOOK AT LEVEL OF STRESS AND HOW DIFFERENT STREETS CREATE LEVEL OF STRESS. THE BIKE BOULEVARD, SOMETIMES THE HIGH STREET OR WHATEVER WE HAVE, THERE IS NOTHING WE SEE WE'RE GOING TO DO O MAKE THE FAMILY COMFORTABLE TO USE THAT STREET. AND SO WHAT WE DO IS LOOK AT THE ALTERNATIVES. AND PORTLAND AS BACK AS THE EARLY '90S, LOOKING AT THE NETWORK OF THE STREETS.

AND REALIZING AT MUCH LOWER COST YOU CAN DO THINGS TO FORMALIZE ROUTES ALONG THE STREET AND CREATE ADVANTAGES FOR BOTH BICYCLING AND WALKING WHERE SOME IS TRAFFIC CALMING, SOME IS CREATING OPPORTUNITIES WHERE ONLY BICYCLES CAN PASS THROUGH A KEY INTERSECTION. IT'S A PRETTY WIDE TOOL BOX.

GIVEN THAT A NUMBER OF THE STREETS WITHIN WORTHINGTON ARE ACTUALLY I THINK ABOUT 40% MILEAGE WISE ARE LOW-VOLUME RESIDENTIAL STREETS SO THEY BALL INTO THE BIKE BOULEVARD CATEGORY. AND REALLY, ACTUALLY I DO HAVE A WAY -- I CAN SHOW YOU A COUPLE OF ILLUSTRATIONS.

THAT OTHER SLIDE SHOW THEY HAVE ON THERE.

BECAUSE THERE IS NOT REALLY, NOT LIKE THE CYCLE TRACK OR -- THERE IS NOT ONE SORT OF ASPECT. EACH COMMUNITY CAN THINK ABOUT WHAT ELEMENTS OF A STREET LIKE THIS ARE APPROPRIATE FOR THEM.

PARTICULARLY, FOR WORTHINGTON, IN THIS CONTEXT.

BUT THE COMMON ELEMENTS ARE MAKING SURE YOU CREATE A CONVENIENCE STREET THAT WORKS COMFORTABLY FOR BICYCLES TO GET THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD. AND ALSO, THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU GET TO THE HIGH STREET OR 161 YOU FIND A WAY TO GET ACROSS.

THAT IS A NICE ILLUSTRATION OF LOOKING AT THIS EXAMPLE.

VERY LITTLE THERE, THE BICYCLE STENCIL TO HELP QUEUE MOTORIST, THAT IT'S THAT ROUTE. AND YOU CAN SEE THERE, SORT OF A MEDIAN IN THE BUSY STREET WHERE TURNING CAN'T HAPPEN BUT THERE IS A REFUGE SO WHEN BICYCLES COME UP THEY CAN SPLIT THE CROSSING AND CARRY ON THEIR WAY.

THAT IS ONE OF MANY EXAMPLES. I'LL LET DAN TALK ABOUT THE OTHER ELEMENTS THAT WOULD MAKE THAT UP.

>> SO SPECIALLY DESIGNATED SECTIONS OF STREET, IT'S THE FREEWAY FOR BICYCLES AND WALKING.

PEOPLE LOVE BEING DESIGNATED A GREEN WAY, THEY SEE THE LOWEST

[01:55:03]

VOLUME OF TRAFFIC. THIS IS ONE IS A VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA. PEOPLE PUT IN MANY CIRCLES AT THE INTERSECTIONS. IT UARANTEES A REDUCTION IN SPEED. A MOTORIST LEAVING THIS INTERSECTION HEADING UP HILL WON'T PICK UP SPEED.

BECAUSE IT'S A BICYCLE BOULEVARD THEY ARE NOT TO GO MUCH FASTER THAN A BICYCLE. AGAIN, IT'S A HUGE ADVANTAGE.

YOU CAN SEE THIS ONE IN ONTARIO, IS A PLACE THAT LOTS OF BICYCLIST MAKE THEIR MOVEMENTS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY ARE THE PREFERRED VOLUME OF TRAFFIC ON THAT STREET.

JUST A WAY F DOING BICYCLE SYSTEMS AT A VERY LOW COST THAT ALSO ENHANCE HE VALUE OF LIVING ON THOSE STREETS.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: I HAD AN ISSUE COME UP, WHEN DID WE REDO AND WE DISCUSSED SHOULD WE PUT IN SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND IT'S A HEAVILY TRAVELED COMMERCIAL ROAD.

AND THAT'S WHEN WE STARTED THINKING, WAIT A MINUTE, WE HAD ANOTHER ROAD PARALLEL TO IT THAT DIDN'T GIVE QUITE THE SAME NORTH SOUTH CONNECTIVITY, BUT MORE RESIDENTIAL, LESS TRAVELED.

DOES YOUR PROPOSAL AND STUDY TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THINGS LIKE THAT AS TO OKAY, THIS WOULD BE A GREAT ROAD TO HAVE A COMPLETE STREET BUT WE HAVE HEAVY TRUCK TRAFFIC ON THIS ROAD AND A 10TH OF A MILE WE HAVE A MUCH BETTER WAY TO ACCOMMODATE BICYCLES.

>> USING THE LEDGES OF THE FEEDBACK AND THE CHALLENGES, W WE -- LENS -- WE STILL SAY WHEN YOU DO THE ALTERNATIVE, IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULD ABANDONED.

THE KEY STREETS ARE WHERE THE DESTINATIONS ARE.

SO MUCH OF THE NETWORK TAKES ADVANTAGE OF LOW-VOLUME RESIDENTIAL STREETS THAT MAKE CONNECTIONS WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOOD TO START THE PROCESS, IF WE JUST BUILT OUT THAT NETWORK ALONE IT'S NOT GOING TO GET US FAR.

BUT IT HELPS IN TERMS OF THE BROADER SENSE OF THE NETWORK.

THE BIKE BOULEVARD, THERE IS A LOT OF NUANCE WAYS TO ACHIEVE A FEEL OF A STREET LIKE THAT. PEOPLE AKE THE BIKE BOULEVARD ELEME ELEMENTS AND WANT TO PUT IT ON HUNTLEY.

ONLY CLASSIFIED AS STREET, NOT THE OTHER CLASSPHICS AND WORK ACCORDINGLY. WHEN WE BUILD THE TOOL BOX WE'LL BE HEAVY ON ILLUSTRATING THE EXAMPLES, SOME OF THE GUIDANCE, AND GIVE OME OF THE LICENSE TO THE COMMUNITY TO THINK ABOUT THE ONE, THE PICTURE YOU SEE OF BIKE BOULEVARD DOESN'T HAVE TO BE YOUR BIKE BOULEVARD. IT'S ABOUT WHAT MAKES SENSE IN THE CONTEXT OF WORTHINGTON. ONE THING ALSO WE SAY BIKE BOULEVARDS, BUT THESE ARE STREETS THAT ARE LOW STRESS FOR PEOPLE. GETTING BACK TO THE IDEA, NOT EVERY STREET NEEDS A SIDEWALK. PEOPLE WALKING, BIKING CAN SHARE IN TRAFFIC. VEHICLES START TO BEHAVE.

AND THERE ARE WAYS TO HELP REINFORCE THE MESSAGE AND DESIGN THE STREET THAT WAY. AND DAN'S IDEA OF PILOT PROJECTS TO DO THINGS THAT ARE BRAND-NEW TO THE STREETS BASED ON IDEAS IN WORTHINGTON. I ALWAYS SAY, TRY THIS OUT.

WHEN YOU GO TO THE CONVERSATION THERE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF RESISTANCE. SOMETHING UNKNOWN CAN BE RECEIVED IN A CONTENTIOUS WAY. IF THE COMMUNITY CAN CREATE SOMETHING THOUGHTFUL AND DEMONSTRATE IT, WHEN YOU DO SOMETHING WELL, THEY CLAMOR THEY WANT IT ON THIS AND THAT STREET. WE'LL TRY TO CREATE THE BEST TOOL BOX BUT I WANT O STAY SHORT OF TELL YOU HOW TO DO THE BIKE BOULEVARD. I THINK THAT WORTHINGTON WILL DO SOME INNOVATIVE THINGS ON YOUR OWN.

>> PRO TEM S. MYERS: WHEN YOU SAY THE, TOOL BOX, YOU HAVE A DECISION MATRIX FOR US TO GO THROUGH THAT WILL HELP US PIX

THE RIGHT ROUTES? >> WE HAVE IDENTIFIED THE NETWORK. WE PROPOSE THAT.

THAT'S WHERE THE MATRIX FOR COME OUR FRIENDS AT MORPC.

THEY DIDN'T SHOW THE MATRIX BECAUSE IT'S BIG AND BORING.

[02:00:03]

BUT EVERYTHING I ECOMMEND IN THIS LISTING COMES STRAIGHT OUT OF THE STREET TOPOLOGY. IT'S ALIGNED WITH IT.

IT SAYS BIKE BOULEVARD IS ONE OPTION.

AND WHERE THAT IS APPROPRIATE WE PUT FORWARD AS A RECOMMENDATION.

>> D. SMITH: THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN WORK ON THE IDEAS, I'M GOING TO SEE IT COME TO FRUITION.

GOING TO LOBBY THIS GUYS TO PUT MORE MONEY IN THE NEXT BUDGET.

>> THAT IS COUNCILMEMBER SMITH ON THE RECORD LOBBYING FOR MORE

MONEY. >> D. ROBINSON: IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF YOU WOULD ARTICULATE THE BIKE BOULEVARD AND PUT VISUALS IN THERE. SINCE IT APPEARS TO BE ONE OF THE MOST COMMON RECOMMENDATIONS.

>> I WILL SAY THAT'S THE DRAW BACK OF BEING AT THE 90%.

WE HAVE A LEXICON TOOL BOX OF THINGS.

WE'RE LOOKING AT MORPC WITH THEIR TOOL KIT.

SO WE CAN SAY THESE ARE COVERED.

AND IMMEDIATELY, THE BIKE BOULEVARD PART OF THE TOOL KIT IS IMPORTANT. AND WE MAY LOOK AT WAYS TO PROVIDE RESOURCES AND CAPACITY BUILDING AROUND THAT.

IT IS POWERFUL BECAUSE YOU CAN GET IT DONE WITH LOWER COSTS, AND NEIGHBORHOOD ENGAGEMENT TO DO THINGS.

AND REALLY ACTUALLY START TO CREATE A NETWORK WITHIN THE COMMUNITY. AND THIS ACTUALLY SOMETIMES GETS YOU AWAY FROM ARGUING ABOUT THE STREET NEEDS A SIDEWALK.

IT SAYS THERE ARE WAYS FOR US TO ADDRESS THE STREETS THAT REFLECT EACH NEIGHBORHOOD NEEDS. I HAD TWO CONVERSATIONS AT THE OPEN HOUSE, WENT FROM TALKING ABOUT SIDEWALKS TO ENJOY I MAINTAIN AND PRESERVE THE LOW STRESS AND SPEED ON THE STREET.

TO US, THAT BECOMES A PRIORITY, PARTICULAR INSIDE OF OUR NEIGHBORHOODS IN HERE IN WORTHINGTON.

>> R. DOROTHY: HOW WOULD WE GO ABOUT USING SOME OF THE DESIGNS TO EST THEM OUT? IS THERE LIABILITY OR IS THAT IN THERE? HOW DO WE OVERCOME THAT HUMP OF

DURING THE FIRST TRIAL? >> YOU WORK W W WITH YOUR STAFF. THERE IS LIABILITY WITH EVERYTHING IN THE PUBLIC. THAT'S WHY WE DOCUMENT WHY WE'RE DOING. YOU ARE STARTING TO SEE A LOT OF THINGS THAT FOLKS USE IN THE STREETS.

WE'RE GOING TO REFERENCE AS MANY IN THE TOOL BOX.

PART OF S ABOUT LOCAL. WHEN YOU WORK WITH YOUR ENGINEER, SOMETIMES WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS FINE. WHEN YOU DOCUMENT THE PURPOSE FOR WHY YOU ARE DOING THIS AND EVALUATE THINGS EFFECTIVELY, YOU FIND THAT LIABILITY IS NOT SUCH THE BIG ISSUE BUT REALLY MAKING SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AND DESIGN SOMETHING THAT WORKS FOR

THE CONTEXT AND THE COMMUNITY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THE DIFFERENT THINGS, HAVE A CONCEPT OF AVING A DEMONSTRATION PROJECT. IT'S TEMPORARY, NOT PERMANENT.

TRY IT OUT. SOMETHING, IT'S NOT FULL EXPENSE. IT GIVES A MAKE-SHIFT FEEL FOR WHAT IT IS SO PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT WITH THE CONCEPT.

THAT MIGHT BE ONE WAY WE DO THE PUBLIC DUCATION PIECE AND STILL BE ABLE TO OPEN PUBLIC PERCEPTION.

>> OUR TEAM HAS NOW DOUBT BETWEEN THE BIKE PED ADVISORY COMMITTEE AND STAFF THERE WILL BE A LOT OF CREATIVE IDEAS THAT WILL BE ON THE SPECIFICS WE OFFER IN THE PLAN.

I THINK THAT IS ENCOURAGED. >> I'LL GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF A TACTICAL URBANISM PROJECT BALLOONED INTO A HUGE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT. IN RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA, WE PUT ON A TACTICAL URBANISM FOR ONE WEEKEND.

WE DESIGNED WHAT FEATURES SHOULD BE THERE.

THEY WERE CREATED. THE NET OUTCOME THEY RECEIVED $5.6 MILLION TO REBUILD THE STREET.

IT CAN BE A POWERFUL WAY OF DEMONSTRATING PEOPLE'S DESIRE FOR SOMETHING. HOW IT CHANGES MOTORIST'S BEHAVIOR. IT'S GREAT EXAMPLE.

AND THERE IS SO MANY THAT WE'RE COMING UP WITH.

IT'S ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TOOLS IN ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION

TODAY. >> JUST AN IMPORTANT POINT OF ORDER, SINCE WE'RE STREAMING, WE'RE BROADCASTING AND HAVE THE PUBLIC HERE. TACTICAL URBANISM COMES ABOUT FROM THE DIY, THERE GORILLA STREET THING.

FOLKS IN THEIR COMMUNITY DECIDED TO DO PAINT.

[02:05:04]

AS IT'S USED TO DO USED BY DEPARTMENTS TO QUICK ON THE FLY THING. IF SOMEBODY IS READING THIS SAYING WE'RE ADVOCATING FOR COMMUNITY TO CREATE THEIR OWN PROJECTS, NO.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE? WE LOOK FORWARD TO COMMUNITY INPUT COMING IN.

IF ANYBODY HAS ANYTHING TO ADD, FEEL FREE TO ADD.

AND WE'LL GET REVISIONS AND COME BACK IN THE EXT COUPLE OF MONTHS. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR AN EXCELLENT PRESENTATION. A GREAT DEAL OF HARD WORK.

I WANT TO THANK THE BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN COMMITTEE FOR THE HARD WORK AND HOURS YOU UT IN. COMPLETE STREETS.

THIS HAS BEEN LONG TIME COMING.

BUT IT TOOK A LOT OF TIME AND YOU HAVE DONE A WONDERFUL, VERY THOROUGH JOB. I NOW IT'S NOWHERE NEAR OVER, BUT I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE.

>> THANK YOU. I WOULD BE REMISS, WORKING WITH DARREN AND CILIA N THIS, THEY ARE REALLY FANTASTIC IN TERMS OF DIRECTING THIS PROJECT AND PULLING THINGS TOGETHER.

I WANT TO RECOGNIZE, THEY HAVE HELPED MAKE THE PROJECT A PLEASURE FOR OUR TEAM TO WORK ON.

>> THERE IS A LOT OF CREDIT FOR KEEPING THE PROJECT LOCAL.

THEY HAVE THEIR FEET ON THE GROUND AND UNDERSTAND WHERE WORTHINGTON IS TRYING TO GET TO.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY.

IT'S GETTING LATE. WE HAVE TO DO THE FINANCIAL

[6.A.I. Financial Report - January 2019 Executive Summary: The Financial Report for the month of January is attached. Recommendation: Motion to Accept as Presented]

REPORT. THAT HAS TO HAPPEN.

>> HAVE TO. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: I ALSO KNOW YOU ARE GOOD AT BEING BRIEF.

>> M. GREESON: YOU HAVE THE 2019 FINANCIAL REPORT.

HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS. IF THERE AREN'T ANY, I NEED A

MOTION TO ACCEPT, PLEASE. >> R. DOROTHY: IT LOOKED LIKE THE PROJECTIONS WERE ON TASK. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE'RE DOWN 10%

FOR THE FIRST MONTH? >> M. GREESON: WE ARE.

JANUARY OF 2018 WE HAD ANTHEM GENERATING REVENUE.

A FEW OTHERS WERE DOWN. MR. MCCORKLE AND I LOOKED AT THAT. WE'LL MONITOR THAT AS WE MOVE

FORWARD. >> D. ROBINSON: THANK YOU FOR YOUR REPORT. CAN YOU GIVE GREATER PROMINENCE TO THE ACTUAL RELATIVE TO THE BUDGETED.

WHICH SEEMS LIKE KIND OF THE MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER TO FOCUS ON, AS OPPOSED TO VARIABILITY WHICH CAN HAVE STRENUOUS FACTORS. YOU HAVE IT IN THE TEXT BUT INCLUDING IT IN THE CHART ITSELF WOULD BE HELPFUL.

MR. ROB INSON MOVES ADOPTION OF THE FINANCIAL REPORT, SECONDED BY MR. SMITH. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION? IF OT, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, SIGNIFY BY SAYING AYE.

ALL THOSE OPPOSED, LIKE SIGN. THAT HAS PASSED.

DUE TO THE TIME AND ALSO THE FACT THAT I THINK HERB IS GOING TO GIVE ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS ABOUT MOVING FORWARD, IF COUNCIL DOESN'T HAVE A PROBLEM, I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE VISIONING PROCESS AS A DEFINITE PRIORITY FOR THE NEXT COUNCIL MEETING AND THAT THAT BE AN ITEM DEFINITELY MORE TOWARDS THE BEGINNING OF THE MEETING SO WE'RE FRESH AND HAVE A CHANCE TO DO THAT. DOES THAT SOUND FINE TO COUNCILMEMBERS? OKAY.

[7. Reports of Council Members]

REPORTS? MS. THRESS?

MR. LINDSEY? >> NO THANK YOU.MR. HOB ?

>> D. ROBINSON: NOTHING THIS EVENING.

THANK YOU. >> D. SMITH: IT'S IN A YEAR SINCE MY DAUGHTER FELICITY JOINED US.

WELCOME HERE.MR. MEY ERS. >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: CONSISTENT WITH OUR THOUGHTS AT THE RETREAT, YOU ARE ALL WELCOME TO WILL MAKE THIS SEEM LIKE A VERY QUICK MEETING.

WE HAVE STRATFORD VILLAGE FOR AN INITIAL PRESENTATION, IT WILL PROBABLY BE TABLED BUT THERE WILL PEE FEEDBACK FROM THE BOARD AND PUBLIC. HOLIDAY INN FOR HOPEFULLY I BELIEVE A LAST READING. IT SHOULD GET VOTED OFF.

AND WE ALSO HAVE A RARE EVENT, A DEMOLITION AT 53 SHORE STREET, A

[02:10:04]

HOUSE SLOWLY FALLING APART FOR SIX, EIGHT YEARS WITHOUT UTILITIES. 12?

OKAY. >> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: KIND OF

LIKE THE JUNGLE YARD? >> PRO TEM S. MYERS: A LITTLE BIT. BIG NIGHT ON THURSDAY. THERE

WILL BE COFFEE AND POPCORN. >> M. GREESON: MADAM PRESIDENT, STAFFORD VILLAGE PROJECT ON THE MPC, THEY HAVE A PUBLIC MEETING AT THE GRISWOLD CENTER ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: 6:30. >> R. DOROTHY: I WAS EXHIBITING SOMEONE ELSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE. THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO PRESENTED AT THE RETREAT. IT WAS A LOT OF WORK WE WENT THROUGH. PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE WERE THERE, THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING. AND SO WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING THROUGH ALL THOSE NEW PRIORITIES, WHICH INCLUDE BIKE AND PED. THANK YOU EVERYONE. THAT WAS PART OF THE PRIORITIES. SO WE'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING ON THAT. I WANTED TO MENTION, I HINK YOU GOT INVITATIONS TO THE MCCONNELL ART CENTER BIG FUNDRAISER ON TH.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE. THANK YOU.

>> PRESIDENT B. MICHAEL: OKAY. MS. KOWALCZYK.

I WAS GOING TO THANK COUNCILMEMBERS, STAFF MEMBERS, MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO CAME OUT TO THE RETREAT.

IT WAS QUITE A BIT OF TIME ON FRIDAY NIGHT.

AND THEN FROM 8-3 ON SATURDAY. I THINK WE ACCOMPLISHED A LOT.

I THINK WE HAD A LOT OF GOOD MATERIALS THAT CAME FROM IT.

I THINK IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST RETREATS WE HAVE HAD.

AND I KNOW THERE IS MORE TO COME AND THINGS WE'LL CONTINUE TO WORK N, INCLUDING THE VISIONING PROCESS.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE FOR GIVING UP THEIR WEEKEND, TIME AND ENERGY AND RENEWING COMMITMENTS TO GO FORWARD AND WORK TOGETHER FOR THE FUTURE OF WORTHINGTON.
