City of Garden Ridge
Walkable Community Workshop

Introduction

Join the City of Garden Ridge and the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (AAMPO) in helping to identify infrastructure improvements in Garden Ridge to encourage walking and bicycling to restaurants, schools, businesses and parks.

The program brings you together with transportation partner agency staff to discuss transportation issues and concerns in the area that pose a barrier to the community being walk- and bike-friendly. You’ll be able to input issues involving transportation or allied concerns, like code compliance issues or lighting, in person or online, whichever is more convenient!

Following the public input period for the Walkable Community Workshop (WCW), AAMPO will summarize the WCW results and provide this to elected officials and our transportation partner agencies for planning purposes. The reports can launch a meaningful dialogue between you and your community leaders.

The online input period closed on June 18, 2023.

Walking Audit

Garden Ridge officials, in partnership with the Alamo Area MPO, will be conducting a walkability and bikeability audit on Tuesday, June 6th. An audit involves an impartial assessment and analysis of the pedestrian and cycling infrastructure, aiming to identify concerns related to the safety, accessibility, comfort, and convenience of pedestrians and bicyclists within a specific environment. Beyond identifying problematic areas, the audit will explore potential alternatives or solutions, such as engineering interventions, policy adjustments, or educational and enforcement measures. Audits can be conducted before, during, or after the completion of a project. This audit will help kick-off the civic engagement planned for the citizens, workers and visitors of Garden Ridge in the coming weeks.
