Town conducts Vision Survey

PENDLETON — The Town of Pendleton is updating its thoroughfare plan and seeks resident input through a survey.

The thoroughfare plan will include an analysis of the town’s transportation system; it will review existing issues, highlight assets and project for future needs.

“Pendleton is taking a data-driven approach to develop an in-depth analysis of the transportation system and impacts of varying future scenarios, such as differing population and employment growth concentrations or a comparison of project proposals,” the town states in its call-out for survey-takers.

“An effective transportation network is vital for the movement of people, goods, and ideas that support the community, and a thoroughfare plan lays the foundation for successful management of the transportation system,” the town release states.

The town wants to hear residents’ thoughts on streets, trails, bike lanes and sidewalks in what it calls “the first opportunity to join our process and help us determine future priorities and opportunities.”

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and is available at
