Volunteers needed for I-count to help future Moscow city planning

MOSCOW, ID - If you're a resident of Moscow, you have an opportunity to help out your community by counting.

The second annual I-count event is on Thursday and the city is looking for volunteers to help count bikers and pedestrians around town. Volunteers will be stationed at about twenty spots around town to gather data that will help the city plan for the future.

"We are currently working on our "Moscow On the Move Multi-Transportation Plan" right now and we'd like to collect as much data on how people move throughout the City of Moscow as possible," said Assistant City Supervisor Jen Pfiffner.

The city is gathering this data to find out which areas have the most pedestrian and bike traffic. This data will help the city determine what kind of improvements it may need to make over the next few years as far as sidewalks and infrastructure.

You can sign up to count from 7:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m., from 4:00 p.m. -6:00 p.m., or both. If you are interested in volunteering, there is a brief training that you will need to attend Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m. in city hall and you can register at the City of Moscow's website.
