Do you live or own property near the project area (Barton Drive from M-14 to Pontiac)?
Yes


How do you currently use the Barton Drive corridor? (M-14 to Pontiac) (check all that apply)
Walking, Driving


How would you like to use the Barton Drive corridor? (M-14 to Pontiac) (check all that apply)
Walking, Driving


How important is it to make road changes along Barton Drive that improve conditions for people biking and walking? Check the box that most closely represents your view.
Not important


How important is it to make road changes along Barton Drive that improve conditions for people driving? Check the box that most closely represents your view.
Somewhat important


What part of this project are you most interested in? (choose 2)
Financial impacts to property owners (i.e., Special Assessments), Other - Maintain the boardwalk


What is your preference for the proposed bike lane(s) on Barton Drive between Brede and Pontiac? (marked in yellow on the map above)
No bike lanes, maintain on-street parking on both sides


Zone 1 - Brede to Pontiac (marked in blue on the map above): This area is identified in the city's Capital Improvement Plan and has a sidewalk prioritization rating of mid/high. Per city code, adjacent property owners be responsible for the full cost of the installation.  

Opposed


Zone 2 - M-14 to 221 Barton (marked in pink on the map above): Staff has received a petition from residents in this area requesting sidewalk installation. Per city code, adjacent property owners would be responsible for the full cost of the installation. 

Strongly opposed


Zone 3 - Barton and Starwick (marked in yellow on the map above): This sidewalk is proposed as part of an intersection reconfiguration, requested by Safe Routes to School (SRTS). Per city code, adjacent property owners would be responsible for the full cost of the installation. 
Opposed


Zone 4 - 221 Barton to Brede (marked in green): This would only be considered if Zone 2 is also installed; subject to technical feasibility. This sidewalk is along the rear of the lot, the City does not typically assess adjacent property owners to pay for sidewalk installation in those instances.
Strongly opposed


What is your preference at the Barton and Pontiac intersection?
Install designated left-hand turn lane on Barton going eastbound (toward Plymouth Road)
