Eastman Avenue Traffic Study
Roadmap Response Form Results
Some of the information
gleaned from the 700 Roadmap Response Forms filled out in December
2005-January 2006 was compiled into
an initial summary report that was presented to Council at its January 23,
2006, meeting. The findings from that report can be found in PDF*
To see the report presentation from the January 23, 2006, Council meeting, watch the meeting on
THE INITIAL REPORT IN A NUTSHELL: Findings indicated that of
the citizens who filled out a Roadmap Response Form:
49.6% were interested in moving forward with some form of
improvements to traffic issues along Eastman Avenue in the Midland Mall area;
40.6% wanted to postpone taking any action on the busy street.
9.8% of those who submitted a form did not indicate a
preference one way or the other.
The initial report also revealed that although people listed pros and cons to each of the three proposed improvement
options presented by the City, there was no clearly preferred
alternative among the three. Many citizens expressed interest in
finding other approaches to traffic problems in the area north of U.S.
10, and a significant number of Roadmap respondents suggested
other options for addressing the problem.
