Pedestrian Advisory Committee

As shared with the PAC in January 2013, a key Pedestrian Coordinators’ initiative includes the Citywide Safe Routes

to School (SRTS) Strategic Plan. We invite you to SAVE the DATE for Thursday, March 21, 2:00 – 4:00 in the

Caltrans Building (specific room to TBD) to review milestones and progress to date on key SRTS Plan Tasks and

Goals as outlined in the city memorandum to create this Plan.

 

Specifically, the SRTS Plan goal is to make walking and bicycling to school safer for students in the City of LA.  The Plan will include a data-driven methodology for prioritizing school project selection and improving the City’s competitiveness in securing state and federal funding.  Complementary goals include 1) evolving a safety countermeasures toolbox and costs to support recommendations for infrastructure and non-infrastructure needs per school/project, 2) increasing communications and build partnerships between city agencies, LAUSD, and SRTS stakeholders, and 3) formulating strategies to fund and implement SRTS school plans via transportation and non-transportation funding sources.

 

LADOT SRTS team has been making productive strides with GIS mapping and analysis, relationship building with multiple levels of LAUSD, policy inventory analysis, plan outlining and scoping topical working groups such that we would like share with you:

  • Analysis and assessment of a prioritized list of schools citywide
  • Overview of collaborative in-roads with LAUSD headquarters and school-specific
  • Update on LADOT’s synergy with concurrent large-scale SRTS programs/projects citywide
  • Draft of a future SRTS citywide process and resources
  • Draft plan outline and project timeline
  • Opportunities for you/your team to engage in SRTS Strategic Plan working groups

We look forward to your attendance as this will be a wonderful opportunity to provide input, clarifications, insights and perspectives as we continue to evolve the Plan.

This March 21 presentation is taking place during the regularly scheduled City of Los Angeles PAC (Pedestrian Advisory Committee) meeting.  Going forward, the SRTS Plan will continue to be a significant focus of the PAC meeting agenda.  Attendance at PAC meetings will ensure consistent and regular communications about SRTS Plan progress and developments.  If you have recommendations of persons to attend, please contact Deborah Murphy, Chair of the PAC at losangeleswalks@gmail.com.

 

We welcome your forwarding this SAVE the DATE to appropriate staff within your office.  And thank you in advance for your engagement and support of this plan.

 

Warm regards,

 

 

Margot
