Walk reveals ideas for encouraging people to get out


 

Flandreau has a nice entrance sign, Standard said. “If you’ve never been here before, driving in you get one shot at a first impression. It’s important what you want that impression to be when people come to your front door.”

He showed the group what the area could potentially look like and showed examples of what other similarly-sized communities have done to make being outdoors more inviting and safe for people.

The group came up with four top ideas: better crosswalks and school crossing areas, bump outs that are either painted areas on the street or more permanent, a better gateway to the community with improved signage and a bike lane on the street with better connectivity overall to areas where people will walk or ride.

The walking audit was an initial step in determining what some of the possibilities could be. No ideas have been finalized.
