The City of Greenville has partnered with Stantec Consulting Services to study pedestrian safety and develop a plan that reduces the number of crashes and near misses involving pedestrians. In June 2021, City Council amended the upcoming year's budget to set aside $250,000 specifically for this study.
This study will focus on high-volume corridors and school zones and provide the basis for prioritization and implementation of safety measures. It will pinpoint proactive steps that will improve pedestrian safety and result in a prioritized list of project recommendations.
Summary sheets will be written for the locations identified through the prioritization process. The City will develop a list of high-priority safety improvement projects, identifying projects that are eligible and competitive for federal, state, or other safety funding.”
Using an interactive map and survey, the City invited residents to help identify areas where walking is safe and unsafe. The City also hosted a drop-in style open house in May 2022 where City staff and the project consultants shared information about the project and residents can ask questions and provide feedback.
