Origin:
On the survey question, "In what form can we best serve you (either now or as a goal for the future)? Please select all that apply." 61.1% of respondents selected "Commuter friendly (walkable, bikeable, on bus lines, etc.)", which is the highest item selected for that question.

Function:
Identify how much money we need for commuter accessibility in our business plan, can the city/organizations assist with not yet in existence bike paths/lanes, identify partner organizations for bike share, work with building committee to ensure there is bike/car parking, etc.
