The Alliance for Biking and Walking has released a 2012 Benchmarking Report: Biking and Walking in the United States. The report affirms that bicycling and walking benefit public health, the environment, and economies. While many states and local governments are making strides to promote biking and walking, more investment, education, and public policies are needed. The Alliance recommends that government officials and advocates use the benchmarking report to measure their progress toward increasing transportation options and evaluate the results of their efforts.
For the past nineteen years, IPA has conducted a series of public policy forums, along with their accompanying research and reports, focusing on infrastructure policy. The purpose has been to facilitate a continuing process of discussion, planning, and action for the formulation of policies and programs designed to meet future infrastructure needs of Delaware as well as the development of long-term strategies for regional infrastructure priorities. Recent infrastructure policy forums and/or research have focused on the issues of walkability, mobility, interconnectivity, transit-oriented design, right sizing Delaware’s paratransit system, Northeast Corridor transportation, and infrastructure issues.
The proposed project will formulate a framework plan for Complete Communities in Delaware. The project will consist of a focused literature review of planning initiatives to date in Delaware, literature scan to identify features/characteristics of Complete Communities, a series of facilitated outreach meetings, a public policy forum on Complete Communities, and preparation of a white paper to summarize project outcomes.
