Community feedback analysis brings study to a close
The Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study has been completed. The final piece is an examination of public feedback on the recommended design. The Community Feedback Report summarizes responses of 500 people who shared their thoughts between May 1 and May 31, 2019, the official comment period on the plan. The project will now be handed over to a local government partner, and we will work with them to secure funding.
Corrine Drive Community Feedback Report 10-1-2019
Many thanks to the hundreds of people who have provided feedback since the study began in 2017. We couldn’t have done this without you. This short video gives an overview of the study process and tells how the Corrine Drive Recommended Design came together.
what the study accomplished
The Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study produced a design to make the street safer and more enjoyable for everyone. We appreciate the extraordinary involvement of the community in helping shape this plan, as hundreds of people participated in the process. A sincere thank you to everyone who was a part of this enormous public effort.
If you are looking for details on the recommended design, there is plenty of information on this page. One of the easiest ways to get a feel for what the proposed design accomplish is to watch this 2-minute video overview: Watch Corrine Drive Recommended Design Video
MetroPlan Orlando presented the recommended design during a community meeting May 1. More than 220 people came to view displays and a presentation, ask questions about the proposed design, and give comments. We collected comments through May 31.
People at the May 1 meeting posed about 200 questions, and we have answered them all in the two documents below. Questions with similar themes are grouped, and you can access the them by clicking on the topic from the list on the first page:
What’s in the Report
The recommended design for Corrine Drive includes continuous sidewalks, new features for cyclists, a street design that can slow speeds and improve safety, along with more trees for shade and appearance. MetroPlan Orlando – working with Orange County, Orlando, and Winter Park governments – has finished the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study. It will be up to local governments to take over future phases and turn the plan into reality. We’ll continue to support our partners in identifying funding for design and construction.

a recap of the phases
The study has completed its final phase. Here is a recap of earlier work:
Phase 1: Gathered Technical Data & Asked People to Build a Wish List
During the first phase of the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study, MetroPlan Orlando collected technical data and heard the community’s thoughts on Corrine Drive and desires for the corridor’s future. About 150 people came to a public workshop at Leu Gardens to hear results from our technical analysis and community survey. We also presented a video that lays out goals for the study and the kinds of information we collected. You can watch the 6-minute video here.
Phase 2: Used Public Feedback to Come Up with a Design Concept
During the second phase of the study, MetroPlan Orlando presented possible design concepts to the public through an online platform and received feedback from more than 1,100 people. A series of informal meetings in the corridor gave people more information about the trade-offs and compromises that could make the street work for everyone.

ABOUT THE STUDY
The Corrine Drive study used MetroPlan Orlando’s draft Complete Streets policy to showcase how Complete Streets approaches can shape a corridor.
MetroPlan Orlando led the Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study in coordination with Orange County, City of Orlando, and City of Winter Park. Corrine Drive is currently owned by Orange County, maintained by the City of Orlando, and adjacent to the City of Winter Park.
The study started in 2017 and concluded in late spring of 2019. It included technical work and data analysis, along with various opportunities for the public to be involved. The Corrine Drive Complete Streets Study was an independent analysis financed through MetroPlan Orlando’s internal planning funds, which combine federal, state and local money.
Community participation for the Corrine Drive Complete Streets study was guided by a Public Involvement Plan, which outlined how the public would be involved in each stage.
