What is Mobility?
As part of the Vision Plan, it is critically important that St. Augustine be an easily accessible, pedestrian-friendly city with a variety of transportation and parking options designed to support the needs and enhance the experience of all who live, work, and visit here.
We are constantly looking to implement a comprehensive set of mobility solutions designed to address the needs and challenges of a city that continues to grow in popularity and diversity.
- Always balance the needs of residents, businesses, and visitors
- Be inclusive in all design and planning activities, but deliberate in implementing solutions that support the mobility vision
- Solutions must preserve the historic town plan of the City and its street aesthetic
- Agile implementation of solutions (iterate, learn and adjust) with the intent of long term sustainability
Key Enablers & Initiatives
