Clinton - Greening Downtown through Cycling

Students in a course in the School of Planning and Public Affairs developed recommendations to "green" downtown Clinton by improving opportunities for cycling.

After meeting with city officials, students in the course Public Policy and Persuasion decided on commuter bicycling and making the downtown friendlier to cyclists as the focus of efforts to green Clinton's urban center. They explores case studies and best management practices, as well as existing conditions in Clinton, to develop policy, programming, and infrastructure recommendations for better cycling to and within the downtown district. The group provided maps for bike lanes, a recommended survey, and other ideas toward an improved biking climate.
