The Town and Village of Gouverneur are in the midst of developing a complete street policy. In addition, students from Clarkson University are conducting sidewalk inventories throughout both municipalities to develop a dataset on pedestrian infrastructure. The purpose of this community action plan was to capitalize on the momentum of these concurrent initiatives and provide a roadmap for moving forward with complete streets.
UCS conducted an extensive analysis of all available data on the Town and Village of Gouverneur. This included crash reports, demographics and economic analysis. UCS also led an on-site workshop which included a walk audit, visioning exercise and SWOT analysis to determine community priorities. With this data, UCS worked with key community stakeholders to develop actionable projects that the Town and Village can undertake to advance complete streets. UCS also recommended key performance indicators based on stated community priorities.
This project is currently in development and will be complete in summer of 2019.
