Welcome to the ActiveTO Midtown Complete Street Pilot project, brought to you by McKenna John J Architect. As a leading firm in the heavy industry and engineering architecture category, we are proud to present this comprehensive and innovative initiative. This project aims to transform the streets of Midtown, creating safer, more accessible, and vibrant spaces for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists.
The Need for Change
In today's fast-paced urban environments, it is crucial to adapt and improve our transportation systems to accommodate the diverse needs of the community. Midtown, with its growing population and bustling streets, requires a forward-thinking approach to urban planning and design. Recognizing this need for change, McKenna John J Architect has collaborated with local authorities and stakeholders to develop the ActiveTO Midtown Complete Street Pilot project.
The primary goal of the ActiveTO Midtown Complete Street Pilot project is to enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors alike. By redesigning the streets, we aim to create a safer environment that encourages active modes of transportation, reduces traffic congestion, and promotes a sense of community cohesion.
Safety is at the core of our design philosophy. Through the implementation of traffic calming measures, dedicated cycling lanes, and enhanced pedestrian infrastructure, we aim to significantly reduce accidents and create a more secure environment for everyone.
Promoting Active Transport
Active transportation is key to fostering a healthier lifestyle and minimizing our carbon footprint. With the ActiveTO Midtown Complete Street Pilot, we strive to encourage cycling and walking as viable alternatives to driving. By providing safe and accessible routes, we aim to increase the number of people choosing active transportation options.
Enhancing Public Spaces
Public spaces are an essential part of any thriving community. Through this pilot project, we are committed to enhancing the aesthetic appeal and functionality of Midtown's public spaces. By incorporating greenery, street furniture, and art installations, we aim to create vibrant and inviting gathering spots for residents and visitors.
Collaboration and Engagement
The success of the ActiveTO Midtown Complete Street Pilot project lies in collaboration and engagement with the community. We value the input and feedback from residents, businesses, and other stakeholders. Through a series of public consultations, we have actively sought suggestions and ideas to shape this transformative initiative. Together, we can make Midtown a more vibrant and livable place for everyone.
Benefits and Impact
