Transcript of Kolvenbach Presentation

Pedestrian Safety and Health Along the York Road Corridor
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
What's next?
If infrastructure is the cause, it can also be the solution
Complete Streets
Long term developments: YCC/ULI plans, Baltimore's Complete Streets implementation
Shorter term projects: streetscaping, pedestrian and driver awareness campaigns
Project Development
High volume of pedestrians in the area, especially around 5225 York Road (200 people per hour)
People will walk whenever and wherever they want
Infrastructure and street design seem to be the primary causes of this behavior and culture
Access to independent transportation (dependence on pedestrianism and public transit) can be a marginalizing factor
Observation Study Methods
My interest in public health and service with York Road Initiative
YRP's interest in investigating issues of walkability, health, and pedestrian safety
Urban sprawl and York Road's history
