dc.description.abstractThe following report documents the ideas, proposals, and methodologies produced by the Sustainable City Year (SCY) Downtown Parks Connectivity project for the City of Salem. The Downtown Parks Connectivity project members included students in the University of Oregon’s department of Planning, Public Policy and Management enrolled in the academic course PPPM 436/536: Social Planning with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Project members were given the task of connecting Salem’s core area parks by proposing a system of urban pedestrian trails and bicycle routes. The City of Salem hopes to improve pedestrian and bicycle accessibility to enhance the recreational potential of the parks system and the enjoyment of park patrons. Research was primarily conducted using GIS, however this comprehensive report puts an emphasis on ideas for improving transportation connectivity and connecting Salem’s downtown communities rather than the technical GIS methodologies. Note that GIS is still addressed in the final sections of the report and in the appendices, but this is due to the innovative nature of select projects that require a technical understanding of GIS. Each section is divided into brief summaries of individual projects. Policy and planning recommendations are included on a case-by-case basis. The conclusion section includes an overall summary of recommendations generated by these reports.en_US
