Is there anything else you would like to share with the project team and the Housing Commission? It is important that "affordable" housing is affordable to the essential workers earning minimum wage.

As a community, we have an obligation to provide shelter to the homeless citizens of Flagstaff. Nobody should be freezing to death in an American city.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan The draft needs to take into consideration that bikes are a danger to pedestrians using the FITS trails - especially speeding electric bikes. Very, very few bicyclists warn walkers that they are approaching. I know personally two walkers hospitalized due to bicyclists injuring them. Speed limit signs need to be installed along the FUTS trails for electric bikes, especially.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan Pretty disappointing to read the linked surveys regarding bike use, safety, and infrastructure specific to our town-- and the results in each citing a *need for bike lane improvement*-- and see no bold commitment to action in the plan ("policies and strategies" section) on this subject. Clearing bike lanes, and rerouting them during construction feels like the bare minimum; where are policies and goals around creating and protecting more bike lanes (including separated ones!)? How cool it would be to transform the biking and walking landscape in Flagstaff by re-imagining (and not band-aiding) our infrastructure! It was shocking to see this huge omission in bike lane improvement despite the overwhelming results and trends of every WP/survey (see PedBikeWays; Walking Biking Survey results; Bicycle Friendly Community Survey...) that were cited as sources on which this ATMP was based on. Public outreach to educate and enforce on safety/law topics is fine, but information is the least effective form of error-proofing-- a more mature biking infrastructure will cost more to implement than public outreach, but will yield much more effective results and long-term robustness. Please be bold and responsible with taxpayer money and make this long-term investment in our community's safety and health.

Please use this space to share your thoughts and comments about the draft Active Transportation Master Plan More needs to be done to make walking and biking the convenient and safe choice. As long as driving is more convenient, it'll stay the default for many residents. There are few dedicated walkers, bikers, and drivers... most residents make their decision on convenience and safety.

With that in mind, active steps to prioritize walking and biking, even at the expense of driving convenience, are needed. A big emphasis could be placed on grade-separated crossings and separated (protected) infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists.
