Portland, OR: Pedestrian Master Plan

Source: City of Portland

Data collection included citizen requests, street inventories, and an examination of crash data. Using GIS mapping capabilities, a Pedestrian Potential Index was developed, which measures the strength of environmental factors (policy, proximity, and quantitative) that favor walking, and a Deficiency Index, which measures how critically pedestrian improvements are needed based on traffic volumes, crash data, and a lack of sidewalks. The plan contains a section on sources and strategies for obtaining funding. It also presents a graph of the past pedestrian funding and gives five different scenarios for the implementation of future pedestrian improvements.
