KL Engineering worked in partnership with the City of Greenfield, WI to provide an update to their 2008 Bike & Pedestrian Plan. The City Engineer and Parks Director had a renewed interest in developing these community-wide facilities and updating this document was critical to building this network.
Although urban, Greenfield sidewalks in residential neighborhoods are not standard. Therefore, the report focused largely on adding bicycle and pedestrian connections within off-road corridors, near schools, retail centers, large employment areas, and other community attractions.
The City had a tight timeline for the document completion (February – April to draft) and a limited budget.
KL Engineering collaborated with the City for tasks associated with creating the new document. The City completed the GIS work, provided information regarding existing policies, and led the public presentation of the report. KL Engineering created the report itself with the analysis of the existing facilities, proposed new policies and standards, and direction for “next steps” to ensure the document would be used in the future in annual transportation planning.
