Mission Hills BID Asks for Community Feedback on Reynard Way

| June 4, 2018 | 0 Comments

Reynard Way is the subject of a survey for the communities’ feedback.

Three years ago, the Mission Hills BID Design Committee and the Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee began discussing the Reynard Way area. About the same time, the Mission Hills Town Council formed a Reynard Way Ad Hoc Committee and invited residents and business owners to Saturday morning meetings, which included Reynard Way walk-abouts.

In 2017, the Mission Hills Parking Advisory Committee proposed a Reynard Way parking and alternative transportation modalities study. The Uptown Community Parking District approved funding for this study. An RFP was issued and it received five responses. KTU+A was awarded the contract.

The Reynard Way Parking and Alternative Transportation Modalities Study began in July 2017 and on September 23, 2107 a morning community kick-off was held at The Frame Maker. Initial drawings where shared. Feedback was solicited. On February 28, 2018 an afternoon community update meeting was held at The Frame Maker to share study progress and solicit feedback. And, on May 2, 2018 an evening community update meeting was held at Mission Hills Methodist Church where the latest study information was shared and feedback was solicited.

Although not all in attendance support every element of the study, most want options which would have the potential to yield additional parking spaces; create a calm and safer walking and bicycling environment, and include elements for place making.

The Mission Hills BID is interested in hearing your ideas on the Reynard Way Parking and Alternative Transportation Modalities Study. You are invited to view the study online and allow a couple more minutes to take the Survey at: http://bit.ly/reynard-study.
