Performance Measures

1 Provide pedestrian connections between primary destinations (residential, employment services, and retail), particularly within Multimodal Centers and Districts. -Developers of new developments
-Local Government (Planning and Engineering Staff)
-VDOT (Planning and Engineering Staff)
More places within Multimodal Centers and Districts are connected by walking facilities. More people walk for trips within Multimodal Centers and Districts. (New) Linear feet of public walkways (sidewalks and paved greenways) constructed in Multimodal Centers
(New) Linear feet of public walkways constructed in Multimodal Districts
(3.2) Number of Pedestrians by Location
2 For federally-funded pedestrian projects, incorporate into project selection procedures greater prioritization based on the number of potential users as indicated by a project’s location within or connecting Multimodal Centers and Districts.  -TTC
-MPO Policy Board
Federally-funded pedestrian projects are selected in part based on their location with respect to higher density areas defined by the region’s Multimodal Centers and Districts. Pedestrian improvements are made where many people are likely to take advantage of them because of their proximity to work or home. Revised project selection procedures.
3 Incorporate into project selection procedures greater prioritization for funding maintenance of pedestrian facilities based on density of users as indicated by a project’s location within or connecting Multimodal Centers and Districts. -Local Governments (Traffic Engineering)
-VDOT (Roadway Maintenance)
Maintenance projects are selected in part based on their location with respect to higher density areas defined by the region’s Multimodal Centers and Districts. Pedestrian infrastructure in high activity areas are in a good state of repair. Revised project selection procedures.
4 Implement the Regional Pedestrian Vision Plan’s network of pedestrian accommodations. -Developers of new developments
-Local Governments (Planning and Engineering Staff)
-VDOT (???)
The proposed pedestrian network is constructed as envisioned. More people in the region are able and comfortable walking for transportation.
5 Coordinate the Regional Pedestrian Vision Plan with plans for other modes–bikes, transit and automobiles. RVARC -Develop Bike, Hike and Bus Maps (existing multimodal system maps)
-Develop future multimodal system vision map as part of the Long-Range Transportation Plan.
-Multimodal Interactive Online Maps
People are able to seamlessly use multiple modes for traveling in the Roanoke Valley. MPO Policy Board adopts the LRTP Multimodal System Plan
