The M.O.V.E. (Mobility, Opportunity, Vitality, Empowerment) Southeast Action Plan, currently in development, will outline a strategy for making mobility improvements happen in the Greater Southeast Management District. The plan’s goal is to foster equitable access to opportunities, strengthen neighborhood vitality, and pave the way for the empowerment of both individuals and communities using mobility as the plan’s foundation. Unlike a traditional study, the plan will build on ongoing actions such as projects that are already underway across the district.

Success of the M.O.V.E. Southeast Action Plan in part relies on understanding the stories of those who move to, from, and within the Greater Southeast Management District. Community and Stakeholder engagement is at the forefront of the project, creating various opportunities for hearing directly from those who move in the District. Combined with research of existing conditions and projects, as well as coordination with public agencies, this process will inform the creation of a plan that builds on the community’s vision for mobility to address the area’s challenges.

Why We Believe in This Work

  • Having multiple routes and transportation options to get to places offers flexibility.
  • Having choices for mobility reduces the need to travel by car, therefore reducing congestion on the streets and lowering travel time.
  • Having choices for mobility reduces the need to travel by car, which in turn lowers fuel consumption and improves air quality.
  • Walkable streets, especially with ground-level businesses, increase the visibility and use of the street, which makes streets safer and more vibrant, by having “eyes on the street”.
  • Walking, cycling, and rolling (skateboarding, roller skate/rollerblade, strollers, wheelchair) are all forms of active transportation. The improvement of sidewalks and bike infrastructure can help increase physical activity for individuals and promote healthy lifestyles.
