City Council will be briefed on the findings and funding options June 1
The results of Mobility Talks, an initiative to learn about the community’s priorities for improving Austin’s transportation network, are now available. The report may be downloaded at MobilityTalks.org.
The Austin City Council will be briefed on the results of Mobility Talks June 1. The Council will also receive the City Manager’s recommendation for mobility projects and programs to potentially fund as well as funding options.
The conversation will continue at the Austin City Council Mobility Committee meeting June 14, where there will also be an opportunity for the public to provide feedback.
The City of Austin collected input about mobility priorities online and in person from March 21, 2016 to May 8, and through an extension of an online survey May 12-13. Approximately 7,000 people participated in the process.
“The feedback has given us a better understanding of what the public priorities are for mobility improvements, and what types of improvements Austinites want the city to invest in for a better, safer, and more connected network,” Capital Planning Officer Mike Trimble said.
The report released today contains:
- Information about outreach efforts
- Results of the Mobility Talks online survey
- Results from Public Conversations that took place through Conversation Corps, at City Council Town Halls and two Mobility Talks Live public meetings, and online at SpeakUpAustin.org
- A summary of comments from the 12 public hearings hosted by various City of Austin Boards and Commissions, Task Forces, and Advisory Councils
- Key Findings
Mobility Talks is the outcome of City Council Resolution No. 20160211-017. It is one chapter in Austin’s transportation story. Information gathered will inform future plans, project prioritization processes, and capital improvement programs.
