Pedestrian Safety Survey

The City of Cincinnati is launching an online survey tool to give residents a simple, interactive way to report their concerns about pedestrian safety. The web-based tool, known as the Pedestrian Safety Survey, is available at http://cagisonline.hamilton-co.org/pedsafetysurvey/ through April 30, 2018. Survey submissions are anonymous.

The Department of Transportation & Engineering (DOTE) will use the responses to identify trends, which will help it determine where future safety improvements could be made. “As a crowd-sourcing tool, the Pedestrian Safety Survey will help us gauge the magnitude of a specific concern,” said Michael Moore, director of DOTE. "We will use the feedback to prioritize safety improvements in our neighborhoods." A trial version of the survey was tested last August.

The survey isn’t a substitute for the City’s Fix It Cincy! app or Citizen Service Request (CSR) site at www.5916000.com. Residents should continue to use those tools to report specific maintenance requests. The survey tool complements the Fix It Cincy! app and CSR site because it is interactive and allows individual users to share their feedback anonymously with other members of the public.

Our Downtown on the Move

Downtown Cincinnati is now home to over 6,000 residents, with more arriving every month as new condos and apartment homes are completed. The Downtown Residents Council works to develop a community atmosphere, conducts projects to improve the quality of life, and voices concerns of residents at City Hall.

We work closely with the Police Department on safety issues and Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and 3CDC on development and promotion efforts.
