Members: Matthew Petty, Chairperson; Sarah Marsh; Sarah Bunch; Kyle Smith City Staff: Chris Brown, City Engineer; Terry Gulley, Transportation Director Agenda: 1. Old Business: A. TRANSIT SHELTERS: Review of draft priority list for transit shelter installation. Staff performed a review of more than 150 Ozark Regional Transit and Razorback Transit stop locations for placement of shelters and/or other amenities. Staff evaluated each stop location based on average number of boardings, the need for easements or right- of-way acquisition, existing amenities, and the amount of site work necessary for construction. The preliminary list was shared with the transit providers for their review and feedback. The Transportation Division's capacity to construct the shelter pads was also evaluated, and it was determined that construction of 10 shelter pads could be incorporated into the 2020 workplan. With that background in mind, staff presents the list of proposed transit stop improvements to be installed by the end of 2020. (Staff requests a recommendation from the Committee to the Administration on this item) 2. New Business: A.

The charrette was held at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1021 W. Sycamore. The church is located along the midtown multimodal corridor and its easy access improved public attendance. The all -day charrette was held on March 10th and open to the public all day. The design team divided the corridor into six "phases" and each phase was the focus of the charrette's six design stations. Members of the design team were posted at each station and public comments were discussed one-on-one with each attendee. In addition to the general public, the city had scheduled several of the stakeholders along the corridor to drop by the charrette and offer their comments/concerns/questions about the project and how the design process could address their concerns and questions. On March 11th city staff members and the Olsson team met and reviewed the comments received and initiated the conceptual design process. The graphics prepared during the all -day work session were to be presented at a Public Presentation the evening of March 11th. Out of an abundance of caution, the City cancelled the public presentation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the presentation was taped and uploaded to the City's website along with all the conceptual design graphics.

Concerned about bike traffic during school drop-off and pick-up times. • According to residents on Greenvalley Ave., cars (and school buses) tend to exceed the speed limit when driving on Greenvalley Ave. Field visit demonstrated that Greenvalley Ave. is also part of drop off loop for parents. • Woodland Ave. allows for access to Gregory Park at its intersection with Sycamore. • Coordinate with Parks & Recreation to design access to Gregory Park. Field Visit Notes • Design access to Gregory Park could have two possible options depending on needs, budget and desires of the Parks Dept. Ted Jack noted in the meeting that he preferred an option between the skills track and park facilities. Field visit indicated a flatter grade possibility to the west of Parks preferred location. • Drainage issue noted at the intersection of Ash and Woodland. Large Puddle. 15 PRELIMINARY CONCEPTS On March 121", the design team and City Staff conducted an internal team charrette to prepare preliminary concepts based on input received General Narrative: Roadway to be widened to a three -lane section and trail to be located on the east side of Porter and the north side of Deane. New sidewalks will be located on the south side of Deane and highly visible crosswalks (pedestrian refuge) will be added to provide the residents on the south side of Deane to have safe crossing to the trail on the north side of Deane. 500' Radius curve for the intersection with storm water detention on the south side of Deane/West side of Porter. Alternative Option 1: Roadway is three -lane only at intersections. Alternative Option 2: Trail is on the south side Alternative Option 3: 300' radius curve with storm water detention in the Police property. Porter/Deane intersection would be impacted. 16 W Charrette Station 2 Deane St. (East Portion) e� MIDTOWN TRAIL CORRIDOR 1— UE General Narrative: Roadway to be widened to a three -lane section and trail to be located on the north side of Deane. New sidewalks will be located on the south side of Deane and highly visible crosswalks will be added to provide the residents on the south side of Deane to have safe crossing of Deane to the trail on the north side of Deane. Trail stays on North side of Deane to the intersection of Deane/Garland where it crosses and continues south on the east side of Garland.. Alternative Option 1: Roadway is three -lane only at intersections. Alternative Option 2: Trail is on the south side Alternative Option 3: At the intersection with N Gifford Avenue (north side) and Lynns Place (south side), the trail crosses Deane and proceeds south on Lynns Place and then proceeds east toward Garland via an easement with Tri-Cycle Farms. Trail crosses Garland and onto Sycamore. Conflict 1: ROW along Deane to the west of the Garland/Deane intersection is very limited. 17 Charrette Station 3 W. Sycamore St. E} III Is Y� MIDTOWN TRAIL CORRIDOR General Narrative: Sycamore shall be improved to a three -lane section with the trail being located on the south side of Sycamore. The open storm ditch on the south side of Sycamore, between Garland and Leverett shall be piped and the trail located on top of the storm pipes. Sycamore between Leverett and the Razorback Regional Greenway shall be reduced to a three - lane section from its current four -lane section. The trail will remain on the south side and intersect with the Razorback Regional Greenway. The alert signal system at the intersection of Sycamore and the Razorback Regional Greenway shall be updated and improved to increase safety and awareness for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. Alternative Option 1: Trail is on the North side of Sycamore. ROW and how the Trail crosses Garland will impact this decision. Conflict 1: Parking Lot on the North side of Sycamore in the midblock west of the greenway will need to be addressed. Conflict 2: ROW along Sycamore to the east of the Garland/Sycamore intersection is limited. Likely impact to Parking at Church on the southeast corner of Garland and Sycamore m Charrette Station 4 West Poplar St. MIDTOWN TRAIL CORRIDOR General Narrative: Poplar will have a road diet by reducing the excessively wide travel lanes down to 11' each. The trail shall be implemented as a two-way protected cycle -track along Poplar's north curb line. At the intersection of Gregg, the traffic signal shall be improved to increase safety and awareness for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians. The major traffic signal issue is the lack of awareness of cyclists when vehicles are turning left (northbound) onto Gregg. No notable conceptual alternatives. 19 Charrette Station S East Poplar St. t ; l } MIDTOWN TRAIL CORRIDOR General Narrative: Poplar shall remain a two-lane section and the trail is proposed to be located on the south side of Poplar in the adjacent resident's front yards. The challenging location for the trail is in front of the school. Discussions with school officials resulted in the possible redesign of the parking and drop-off zone in front of the school. The graphic below illustrates a possible solution that meets the school's needs and provides for a safe bicycle and pedestrian facility along Poplar. Y 3 � E.

MIDTOWN TRAIL CORRIDOR - 71r7 IM olss'�'- General Narrative: Woodland would remain as it is and a neighborhood greenway bicycle facility would be implemented via pavement markings. The trail crossing from Woodland, across Sycamore and into Gregory Park is still under consideration and the design team shall coordinate with Parks & Recreation about this issue. 21 NEXT STEPS • Review Charrette Summary with City staff • Review trail access options with Parks & Recreation and City Staff • Review redesign of school drop-off and parking with Woodland Jr. High officials • Finalize Preliminary Concepts and initiate Schematic Design/Design Development phases. 22 APPENDIX Midtown Multimodal Corridor Public Meeting Presentation Boards March 11, 2020 23 BICYCLE BOULEVARDS CITY OF FAYETTEVILLE ARKANSAS BIC I•hau ova E, 1 :Creel=1111 lour 1-1111 1r, wk _1 dlpecd 1 r--iLcc. e-.i. c.;1yr1r. 11111,6-e5.:lc _ravcl.�- ly.&ey-I.B lo�_rds ;>c ;yr;.I�.�cr ,rrL no-ki -c..; 1 �r—j [I olljl-m_req [ntmc:au ,-r, —r-oc rl 'st g r IF h. tFwhleo _[eratesef�—iiintbl—lI nt—igq en.5y altn'lel M—t,, lo� �.-•—lei/�` , PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE CROSSINGS CONCEPTS RAISED CROSSWALKS A rc'sec n —il, is,i speetl t,,hle that i_ mprketl pnc =gnec rot xlc,ro, �•ss �.M1ex,c,d�hllye nc, loner the, - typlc3l speec table, an7's typically inches high.
