PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY

The city of Portland, Oregon created a pedestrian-priority map to identify areas where existing and potential pedestrian use is high and to identify areas where improvements will help to implement the Pedestrian Master Plan. To prioritize the streets, each of the 31,027 street segments in the city was ranked according to its classification in the city's comprehensive plan, proximity to an elementary school, and Region 2040 designation. It was then assigned a point value that resulted in color codings, ranging in the order of the spectrum from orange-yellow (no points) to green (eight points). The resulting map plots a fairly clear pattern of high-priority centers of pedestrian activity.
