Mobility Matters is a new initiative of the MRV TAC to share stories of local transportation success, challenges, and opportunities.
Pedestrian safety has been a long-time priority in the Mad River Valley and included in several recent planning initiatives and town projects, such as the Waitsfield sidewalk project (in progress), the MRV Moves Plan (2016), and the Vermont Downtown Action Team (V-DAT) reports completed for Waitsfield and Warren (2014).
MRV TAC began a "Share the Road" educational campaign in 2020 in response to increased usage of the Valley's rural roads. The focus shifted to "downtown" roads following the tragic pedestrian accident in Waitsfield in October 2020. Recent work by MRV TAC has included:
- Organizing a presentation and discussion of pedestrian safety improvement opportunities with representatives from Local Motion, VTrans and the Town of Waitsfield;
- Forming a Pedestrian Safety Sub-Committee to disseminate public information and support the Town of Waitsfield's efforts to implement improvements; and,
- On-going conversations with various stakeholders to support collective dialogue and action.
