Learn About Santa Monica’s Pedestrian Action Plan At Free Monday Workshop:

The City of Santa Monica is hosting a public workshop this Monday, Jan. 28 to explore ways to make “safe and enjoyable” the highlight of walking anywhere in the city.

It will be held from 7-9 p.m. at the Santa Monica Civic Center, East Wing 1855 Main Street, Santa Monica.

There is free bike parking, or auto parking for $1/hour.

The City’s Pedestrian Action Plan, a project of the Land Use and Circulation Element, is about deciding where the dollars should be spent so that walking becomes the healthy, safe alternative it should be.

People will be able to question the methods and suggest better ways to make the streets safer, by taking on such issues as:

· Improved pedestrian safety and comfort

· Independence for young people and seniors

· Improve health of all residents by walking

This ongoing program has already delivered some important information that community members need to know and talk about in this workshop:

· 80 percent of the pedestrian collisions are happening at 20 percent of the intersections, particularly on certain streets such as Wilshire and Santa Monica Blvd. The highest pedestrian volumes are on and around the Third Street Promenade.

· Emerging themes include visibility and crossing issues, sidewalk condition, signal timing, streetscape modification, facility design standards, and funding for new facilities.

Big Blue Bus Lines 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, and 9 serve the Civic Center.

To RSVP call 310.458.8341 or email: transportation.management@smgov.net. Or, engage in the planning process at any time on line at: pedplan.santamonicatownhall.org.
