SUSTAINABILITY IN THE 1ST DISTRICT OF LYON Collecting Data In order to make this plan for the sustainability in the 1st district of Lyon, we decided to collect some data about the environmental quality of the area, about the traffic and the public installations in the area, and about what people thought of the area. Environmental quality of the area In order to evaluate the environmental quality of the 1st district of Lyon, we based our survey on 7 features (Landscape quality, Presence of derelict land, Litter and Vandalism, Atmosphere, Footpaths and Pavements, Noise, Air Pollution), each marked out of 5, giving a total score out of 35 for each site. We proceeded to this survey in 6 sites ( Hotel de Ville, Place des Terreaux, Rue d'Algérie, Rue Terme, Rue des Capucins and Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse) Results Hotel de Ville: 24/35 Main problem(s): Landscape quality
Place des Terreaux: 21/35 Main problem(s): Lanscape quality + Noise + Footpaths and pavements
Rue d'Algérie: 21/35. Main problem(s): Landscape quality + Litter
Rue Terme: 23/35. Main problem(s): Landscape quality + Litter + Atmosphere+ Footpaths & pavements
Rue des Capucins: 18/35. Main problems: Landscape quality + Litter + Atmosphere
Boulevard de la Croix-Rousse: 31/35. Main problem(s): Noise
Average score: 23/35. Main problems detected: Landscape quality + Litter & Vandalism + Quality of pavements and footpaths. Traffic and Public Installations In order to evaluate this criterion, we counted the number of vehicles during 5min, the number of pedestrians during 5min, the number of public bins, public telephone boxes, public lightning, low and high order shops in the area. We proceeded to this count between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. in a period of vacation. Results What do people think of the area? In order to obtain people's real thoughts about the area and the quality of life in the area, we interviewed two passers-by: an 18-year-old woman, a student living in Vaise, sitting near the fountain of Place de la Croix-Rousse, waiting for her friends, and a man in his 40s, who works as a bookseller, living in the 1st district, reading in the quietness of the patio of the Museum of Fine Arts.
