About the Project
In 2012, the Urban Land Institute’s Sacramento District Council (ULI), in cooperation with the Greater Broadway Partnership, developed a Vision Plan for the Broadway Corridor. The Vision Plan included a variety of recommendations for the Broadway Corridor from pedestrian enhancements, suggestions for mixed-use infill development, and aesthetic guidelines for each District and the Broadway Corridor as a whole. ULI envisioned Broadway not only as a Complete Street, but also as a premier pedestrian street.
Currently, the Broadway Corridor is automobile-dominated arterial with sidewalks of varying widths, complicated pedestrian crossings, and discontinuous bike lanes creating a less than optimal environment for anyone attempting to travel without a car.
The goals of the Broadway Complete Streets Plan include:
- Balance accessibility for all modes of transportation in the Broadway Corridor
- Enhance safety and comfort for all modes, especially pedestrians and bicyclists
- Encourage economic revitalization and reinvestment along the Corridor
