Council has invited public feedback on the ClearView project. The public is asked to provide ideas for how to improve the utility of a highway. Council will discuss the feedback it receives in an opportunity for public comment: May 18, 2013 at 9am – 5pm, City Hall, 7th Fl. By invitation only.
Clearview: The answer to all your traffic concerns
This is the central question of the campaign: How can a clearview help with traffic? The short answer: A clearview will help with all kinds of traffic, including vehicle movement, car lanes, stop signs, bike lanes, red lights, and more. The question is: How can we make the most of this new technology? To figure out how to best use the ClearView, Council and the department of transportation (DOT) must sit down for an initial public meeting. The public is then asked to attend several follow-up meetings, where participants are given more information about the technology and what actions should be taken next. After the initial public meeting, Council will work with the staff of the department of transportation on how to most effectively integrate ClearView into the existing system. In the meantime, other departments, such as the police and fire departments, will also have to keep up with the latest developments in the technology and ensure it is being used as intended.
How to improve the utility of a road
One of the most important things to do is to make the most of the extra space on a road. If you have to drive through a construction zone, or you’re Construction Road 000, you will notice a small “X” in the middle of the road. This line should be painted to distinguish it from other lines on the road. Another important thing to keep in mind is the fact that modern roadways are built to withstand daily use. If a car goes through your neighborhood a few times a month, and then regularly trips along a construction road, you will notice a subtle change in the road’s condition.
ClearView can be implemented at any time
The schedule for the implementation of the Clearview is flexible. In theory, it could happen at any time, but the most likely time is in the first few months of 2014. The actual date is likely to be much later, based on the availability of funds. At the initial public meeting, Council wasn’t sure how the technology would work in the system. The following steps are helpful to remember: Get a head start—It’s helpful to get an idea of how the system works so you know what steps to take before making any major decisions. Discuss possible modes of operation—Before making any major decisions, discuss options for how the system could be implemented at various points in time. Consider the environmental impacts of different options—Another important thing to keep in mind is the impact of different options on the environment.
Provenance and navigation considerations
As the tech behind the Clearview is developed, several issues will arise that will need to be considered in the decision-making process. The most important of these is provenance. The construction of a new road or bridge requires the placement of bonds, or common-use permits, for construction and maintenance. The placement of these bonds can result in the ownership of the land on which the project is built. While the engineering and design aspects of the project should be left up to the architect or engineer designing the road, the ownership of the land is the responsibility of the contractor. The same is true for navigation. Different modes of transportation, such as all- Pedestrian or shared-bike lanes, should be considered as part of the provenance of the street.
Why is a clearview necessary?
Why would we need a clearview? The short answer is that it will improve the efficiency of a city’s traffic system. There are a few main benefits to having a clearview: Improved visibility for all users Reduced intersection delays Reduced car speeds Reduced stop and yield signs Increased driver focus
What will be the long-term goal of the project?
The overall goal of the project is to create a high-quality, open space for every purpose. The project will aim to improve the safety of all users, while also making the streets attractive to new and existing businesses. The project will use the ClearView technology to create an “open spaces” network, where people will have a wide range of options for how to use the streets. Since the streets will be the public space, it will be in the best position to decide what uses are best for the streets. This will help improve traffic safety, while also making the streets attractive to new and existing businesses.
The campaign has produced some great results, with more than 50 percent of the public supporting the adoption of a clearview. The first step is to get the public in to discuss the pros and cons of the project with one voice. Then, take the feedback and make corrections based on the facts. Finally, make a plan to implement the project at various points in time. In the end, having a clearview will help facilitate better traffic flow, reduce stop and yield signs, improve safety for all users, and make the streets attractive to new and existing businesses.
