The City of Greenville partnered with Stantec Consulting Services to study pedestrian safety and develop a plan that reduces the number of crashes and near misses involving pedestrians. In June 2021, City Council amended the upcoming year's budget to set aside $250,000 specifically for this study.
This study focused on high-volume corridors and school zones and now provides the basis for prioritization and implementation of safety measures. It also pinpoints proactive steps that would improve pedestrian safety and will result in a prioritized list of project recommendations.
Summary sheets were written for the locations identified through the prioritization process. The City has used this study to develop a list of high-priority safety improvement projects, identifying projects that are eligible and competitive for federal, state, or other safety funding.
Previous Engagement Sessions
At the project's inception, the City used an interactive map and survey to invite residents to identify areas where walking is safe and unsafe. More than 1,000 responses were received. The City also hosted a drop-in style open house in May 2022 where City staff and the project consultants shared information about the project and residents could ask questions and provide feedback.
