[ARCHIVED] Your input is needed: Complete Streets Survey

Complete Streets Survey

Provide input by participating in a brief online survey regarding North Bend Way street design! Access the survey by visiting https://forms.gle/nwGeL6SpUD3f1aoq7.

The City of North Bend has retained consultant, Parametrix, to prepare a Complete Streets Corridor Plan for North Bend Way. The Complete Streets approach creates an integrated transportation network that is accessible, safe, and convenient for people of all ages and abilities walking, riding bicycles, driving private motor vehicles, taking transit, or delivering freight.

North Bend Way is the main street for North Bend. It connects neighborhoods, parks, and civic destinations. It serves as the primary route for people navigating through town. The community takes pride in the small-town scale of North Bend, as well as its cultural and railroad heritage. Residents also value the natural setting and views of Mount Si and the Cascade foothills.

Right now, pedestrians and cyclists have limited accommodations along North Bend Way, with sidewalks and the Tanner Trail being limited to central segments of the corridor. Pedestrians accessing Tollgate Farm Park from downtown commonly walk along the wide shoulder of North Bend Way. Residents value existing sidewalks and trails for moving around town and they support plans for the expansion of these networks, allowing for greater connectivity.  

A public workshop was held on June 13 and June 15 to obtain public feedback on conceptual alternatives that were prepared. Parametrix is also seeking feedback directly from the public on the elements of conceptual alternatives via the online survey. Results from the survey will help us determine the most important elements to include for each segment of North Bend Way. The survey will remain open through July 14.

For questions, please contact Community and Economic Development Director, Rebecca Deming, at RDeming@northbendwa.gov.
