Public Workshop 1 – Web Engagement

A number of activities were presented at the 1st public meeting for the West End Transitway on April 22, 2014. Those activities are available here so that people who weren't able to attend the meeting can participate online. Before completing the survey, please review the meeting materials available at the West End Transitway website.
Where do you live, work/study, and shop?
The West End Transitway would serve people who live, work/study, and shop in the corridor. Please tell us a bit about your activities: *This question is required.
Design Options

The "Build Alternative" for the West End Transitway was developed based on the preferred alternative of the Transitway Corridors Feasibility Study completed in 2009, as recommended by the High Capacity Transit Corridor Work Group, Planning Commission, Transportation Commission, and City Council. A number of items were identified for further consideration. The "design options" are sets of alternatives related to either station location or transitway configuration for three locations along the corridor. Selecting one design option versus others involves tradeoffs between positive, but mutually exclusive, outcomes – such as proximity to a certain destination versus transit travel speed. The public's preferences will inform decision-making toward a preferred transitway design for study as the West End Transitway Build Alternative. Please review the Design Options materials prior to completing this section of the survey.

This activity allows you to tell us what is most important in selecting from design options. For each pair of statements, chose the statement that corresponds to your preference.
Northern Virginia Community College

Previous planning recommended further evaluation of how to best serve Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) and the surrounding areas. Four options for station locations in the vicinity of NVCC are under consideration.
NVCC Preference Option 1 *This question is required.
  
A: Proximity to NVCC (You might prefer this option if you work at or attend NVCC)B: Shorter Corridor Travel Time (You might prefer this option if your primary transit destination is not NVCC)
NVCC Preference Option 2 *This question is required.
  
A: Proximity to NVCC (You might prefer this if you work at or attend NVCC)B: Proximity to Residential Areas (You live in or often visit the residential areas along Beauregard Street)
Landmark Mall

Landmark Mall serves as a retail center and a transfer point for local bus routes. Portions of the Landmark Mall property have been approved for mixed-use redevelopment with an associated transit center. The mall’s distance from Van Dorn Street provides a challenge to serve the mall site without significantly increasing corridor travel time. Two potential station locations are under consideration.
Landmark Mall Preference Option 1 *This question is required.
  
A: Proximity to Landmark Mall (You might prefer this option if you work or frequently shop at the mall or if you think the future development here should be directly connected to high-capacity transit)B: Shorter Corridor Travel Time (You might prefer this option if your primary transit destination is not Landmark Mall)
Landmark Mall Preference Option 2 *This question is required.
  
A: Proximity to Transit Transfer Facility (Your transit trip involves a transfer at the existing bus transfer facility)B: Shorter Corridor Travel Time (You might prefer this option if your primary transit destination is not Landmark Mall)
Landmark Mall Preference Option 3 *This question is required.
  
A: Proximity to Landmark Mall (You might prefer this option if you work or frequently shop at the mall or if you think the future development here should be directly connected to high-capacity transit)B: Proximity to Residential Areas (You live in or often visit the residential areas around Van Dorn Street and Duke Street)
Van Dorn Street

The segment of Van Dorn Street between Courtney Avenue and Landmark Mall generally has a four-lane, divided cross-section and is about one mile long. The feasibility study recommendation maintains existing lanes for general purpose traffic, adds dedicated lanes in each direction for use by transit only, and creates a complete streetscape (i.e. wide sidewalk, street trees, and bicycle facilities). The recommended cross-section would impact surrounding properties. Three options are under consideration for this segment of the corridor.
Van Dorn Street Preference Option 1 *This question is required.
  
A: Limited Impact to Existing Property (You would like Van Dorn Street to remain as wide as it is today)B: Shorter Corridor Travel Time (Your primary transit destination is not along Van Dorn Street or you're concerned about the impact of the transitway on general traffic)
Van Dorn Street Preference Option 2 *This question is required.
  
A: Limited Impact to Existing Property (You would like Van Dorn Street to remain as wide as it is today)B: Streetscaping and Pedestrian/Bicycle Facilities (You support the vision for a "Complete Street" or you primarily use the corridor as a cyclist or pedestrian)
Public Engagement
There are four set public meetings anticipated as part of the West End Transitway Project as indicated below. The overall project timeline is available at the West End Transitway website. We are also looking for other opportunities to share information with the public and receive your input. What is the best way to share project information and engage with you? Please indicate your preference by selecting four items below. Each item is a combination of an activity (i.e. office hours) and a project stage (i.e. between Public Meetings 1 and 2).
