North 16th Street Streetscape Improvements Project
AIM Consulting served as the public outreach consultant for the North 16th Street Streetscape Improvements Project, which is evaluating pedestrian-level improvements to a heavily-traveled downtown corridor to enhance safety and create an inviting place. AIM developed and implemented a community outreach program to engage residents, businesses, property owners, and commuters that travel along or to North 16th Street. At the beginning of the project, AIM coordinated and facilitated two community open houses to educate the community on potential streetscape improvements and receive input. More than 100 local community members attended each meeting. AIM also developed a map-based online questionnaire to gather feedback on existing conditions along the corridor, proposed improvements, and how the community travels on North 16th Street. Other elements of the outreach program include a stakeholder focus group meeting, additional community open houses, communication collateral development, and media relations.
