Pedestrian Safety Workshop: A Focus on Older Adults

Location: Culver City Senior Center, 4095 Overland Ave., Room B47

Event Date & Time: Wednesday, October 13, 2010, from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm


Communities everywhere face a wide number of issues that affect people’s ability to walk safely and free of fear. These issues are of particular concern as people age and become more vulnerable. The Pedestrian Safety Workshop: A Focus on Older Adults provides a unique opportunity to address a range of common pedestrian problems by helping individuals and organizations to identify concerns, understand and meet people who can help, and build partnerships to improve conditions for pedestrians of all ages.


Yes, if you are committed to or interested in making your community more pedestrian friendly for older adults. Whether you are a community member, a transportation professional, a city decision maker, a law enforcement officer, or on the front lines of planning, designing, building and maintaining public streetscapes, this event will give you important insight on walking challenges from the perspective of older adults.

We hope you will join us for this free workshop!
