Step Forward: Pedestrian Mobility Master Plan
Thanks to all who contributed in developing this map. It will remain available for viewing for a while longer, but you will not be able to add new comments. We appreciate your thoughts and insight!
Welcome! This interactive map is provided by the City of Hamilton as part of its Pedestrian Mobility Master Plan process to gather comments from the public about pedestrian conditions in the City. We are looking for information about streets and routes that you use, routes you believe are pedestrian-friendly, or un-friendly, and areas where you think improvements are needed. The comments will be gathered and used in the planning process that is underway to develop a pedestrian/walkability improvement plan for the City of Hamilton.
To begin the process
On the upper right hand corner, click on “login.”
YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THREE WAYS:
1) You can place a marker (point) on the map, assign it to a category, and make a comment about the issue or condition you are pointing out.
--Add markers by clicking on the "Add Marker" link at the top of the page and then clicking the appropriate location in the map. Please enter a short, descriptive title and select a category. Use the “Description” field to elaborate further on the nature of the issue addressed or improvement suggested.
2) You can draw a line on the map to represent a route, and place one or more markers on it to provide a comment that explains what the line represents.
--Add lines by clicking the “Start A Path” link at the top of the page and then clicking at successive points on the map to indicate the direction of the path. (Note: More than two points are required to make a curved path). Promote at least one of path’s end points to a marker by clicking on the end point and clicking “Promote to Marker” in the call-out box. Please enter a short, descriptive title and category. Use the “Description” field to elaborate.
3) You can add a comment about a location that another person has already placed on the map.
--Add comments by clicking on the “Add Comment” link provided at the bottom of the callout box for each marker. Please keep comments friendly and constructive.
Remember that you can use different map views by selecting "Map", "Satellite," or "Hybrid."
PLEASE SHOW US THE FOLLOWING ITEMS ON THE MAP:

3. Where traffic is uncomfortable (i.e. too fast, too much, too many turning movements) (Marker)
4. A difficult intersection to navigate (i.e. no curb ramps, long crossing, inadequate crossing time (Marker)
5. Where pavement condition is poor (i.e. large holes or cracks, bumpy, crumbling) (Marker)
6. Where you know an accident involving a pedestrian and vehicle took place (Marker)
7. Unappealing pedestrian environment (i.e. no trees, large parking or vacant lots adjacent to sidewalk) (Marker, Use a Path if you want to indicate larger area)
8. Personal safety concerns (i.e. inadequate lighting, derelict or vandalized properties, no other people around) (Marker, Use a Path if you want to indicate larger area)
9. Where you would walk if there were better facilities/conditions (e.g. sidewalks present, safe, comfortable)
10. Where an improvement is needed to an existing bridge or a new bridge is needed (Marker)
11. Where a more responsive pedestrian “walk” signal activation is needed
12. Where a pedestrian “walk” signal needs to be longer to provide adequate time for street crossing (Marker)
13. Better pedestrian access is needed to a transit facility (Marker)
14. Where a short path connection is needed (a cut-thru), mid-block crossing, or a gap in sidewalk network needs to be filled (Marker)
