Champaign asking for pedestrian feedback
The City of Champaign is asking for your help to improve walking conditions around the community.
City planner Ben LeRoy said the Walk Champaign project is the latest plan to help pedestrians feel safer and have better access to places when walking around the city.
He said the first step of the project is to find out what citizens like and dislike about sidewalks, or in some areas a lack of a walking path, by going on walkabouts with project developers through city neighborhoods.
Leroy added that Walk Champaign will benefit everyone in the community, no matter how you get around.
LeRoy encouraged citizens to take an online survey about the city's current walking conditions so priorities and policies can start getting established. He expected to have the first recommended project ready by next April.
