Happy New Year, Pittsburgh data enthusiasts!
After a strong start to our Downtown data blogging efforts in 2015, our online efforts we were noticeably distracted throughout the fall due to our Public Space/Public Life collaboration with Gehl Studio. Our resolution for 2016 is to get back in the saddle and get back to blogging.
Data development and data driven decision making are key to Envision Downtown's DNA. As we churn through new data points, we want to share them with you can draw your own conclusions about the present and future of Downtown Pittsburgh and our central neighborhoods. In the next few weeks, stay tuned for new posts about downtown commuter mode splits (based on Make My Trip Count data), public space calculations, Penn Avenue bike lane data and more.
AND, we will also be launching a separate "Project Blog" to provide background data, progress updates and lessons learned from our mobility improvement projects as they are launched. The Project Blog will also work to establish a best-practices framework for complete streets and transportation projects as a way to explore potential replication in other neighborhoods around the city.
As always, we welcome your feedback: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy New Year!
