Sarasota, FL: “Sarasota in Motion,” the first citywide transportation master plan, enters its second phase this week with the launch of an interactive online map.
The map, now available at SarasotaInMotion.com, is intended to be a place where the public can share their comments and ideas for transportation improvements.
How can streets be safer? How can we improve the reliability of travel time to work, particularly as we grow? How can we expand travel options so more people can walk, bike or take transit? Citizens can zoom in on specific streets, intersections and routes on the interactive map and post their comments and ideas, which will shape the City’s vision and action plan to answer these questions.
The City has already gathered hundreds of comments via an open survey, public visioning workshops and community outreach events earlier this summer during the first phase of the master plan process. When it is completed, Sarasota in Motion will serve as a playbook for how the City not only invests in transportation infrastructure, but also how it achieves the community’s larger quality of life goals.
