Public Space Public Life Survey

March 22 & 24, 2018

The City of Columbia is seeking volunteers on March 22nd & 24th to help conduct our 3rd Annual Public Space Public Life (PSPL) Survey throughout downtown Columbia.  Tracking how we use our public space can be a fascinating experience, and provides valuable data to City planners and parties interested in promoting a more walkable, bikable, and livable downtown.  Surveyors will count pedestrians and cyclists at one location for four hours; training for the counts is brief, and is provided by City staff.
