‘How CNY Moves’ Is TMR Topic
The year-long study looked at what cities, towns, county and village authorities can do to take a “people-centered” approach to development that encourages a safe and intelligent blend of pedestrians, autos, buses and bicyclists.
In partnership with the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Centro, the Onondaga County Planning Agency and other county and Syracuse agencies, the OCL study committee investigated a wide range of challenges and issues and will make recommendations for the future of the transit system in the region.
With the teardown of I-81 looming, this is an ideal time to research alternatives, not only for the impact that changes to I-81 will have on commuters, but for the transit system as a whole,” says Eileen Jevis, director of community programs at University College. “Creating walkable neighborhoods, ride-sharing, concentrated poverty and suburban sprawl, are just a few of the issues that were addressed. Our team worked hard to bring people together to voice their opinions and frustrations and offer viable, long-term solutions.”
Thursday Morning Roundtable, is held each week at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. The one-hour program begins at 8:15 a.m. and is open to guests to attend.
