Hastings Walkability and Connectivity Study

The development of the walkability and pedestrian plan started with the background and data collection phase to develop a “picture” with both images and data about the status of pedestrian access in the city. This picture is the foundation to move the city forward and establish a baseline to measure successes. A sidewalk inventory was conducted along with a demographic review of the community emphasizing age of residents, commuting patterns, and household income. A Latent Demand Analysis was also conducted as part of this review to highlight priority areas for new or enhanced bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure through land use patterns.
