    4 focused on 5 specific intersections Our goal with these stations was to learn about usage trends and user comfort levels with current bike ped crossing treatments Below is the series of boards used for 1 of the 5 intersections 17 th Street Washington Street A similar series of boards was used for the 4 other intersections Participants were asked to respond to each question by placing a sticker dot within the box next to their chosen answer Display Boards for 17 th Street Washington Street intersection Question 3 asked what the user s comfort level would be if crossing the intersection with a young child or elderly individual We framed the question this way because our goal is not to design the intersection for experienced users or users that are comfortable in most traffic situations Our goal is to encourage more people to walk and bike so we must design the intersections for the less experienced and less skilled bike ped users When you make improvements for the less experienced users it benefits all users At the final station we presented possible intersection improvement options and asked participants to vote for the improvements that they believed would be the most effective at improving bicycle and pedestrian safety Below are 2 of the 4 boards that were displayed at this station Again participants were asked to vote for their favored improvement options by placing a sticker dot in the provided box Display Boards at Station 5 As much as possible the open house was designed so participants could make their way through the stations at their own pace and without a significant amount of assistance from staff In order to facilitate this participants were provided with an instruction sheet when they arrived This document summarized the topic and purpose of each station and included instructions for providing input Several staff members were present at the open house to answer questions and facilitate discussion but the instruction document was extremely helpful if and when staff members were unavailable The results of the first public open house played an important role in shaping our project and forming the final draft recommendations that we presented at the second open house which was hosted in February 2016 Similar to the first open house we publicized this event through social media and the local radio stations and newspaper We used the second open house to present the results of the August event and to obtain feedback on our final draft recommendations for improvements to eight intersections within our study area After a presentation from staff participants were asked to make their way through a series of display boards each focusing on a specific intersection The example board shown below focuses on the 22 nd Street Central Avenue intersection but similar boards were displayed for the other intersections 22 nd Street Central Avenue Display Board Again participants were asked to vote by placing a red or green sticker dot which they received upon arrival at the
