Tigard Oregon Neighborhood Trails Plan
KAI led a project for the City of Tigard, to identify and evaluate potential “neighborhood” trail connections within the City. These connections are short trails or cut-through routes of an informal nature that provide circulation and access within neighborhoods, serving short trips such as school and shopping trips. The Final Plan included over 40 recommended trail locations, which were identified through an extensive inventorying and outreach process, and evaluated through the use of a customized evaluation matrix. By identifying locations where these trails can be developed and formalized, the Plan increased the safety, convenience and safety of bicycling and walking within Tigard.
KAI’s role included cataloguing potential trail locations, developing and applying evaluation criteria to potential sites, and leading a public outreach effort. The final Neighborhood Trails Plan also included an implementation element to insure that Plan recommendations result in real improvements on the ground.
