On this WalkShop, take a journey from City Hall to the hearltand of the Hollywood neighborhood and see the results of LADOT’s ongoing Safe Routes to School program. A core strategy of the City’s Vision Zero initiative, Safe Routes to School brings engineering improvements and safety education to school neighborhoods that have the highest rates of collisions and fatalities. On this WalkShop, we’ll experience a multimedia showcase of outreach, design and implementation activities that informed the Hollywood High School and Selma Avenue Elementary School Safe Routes to School Project. We’ll engage with District and school staff, engineers, and enforcement to learn about the robust, collaborative and empowering planning process behind the initiative. And of course, we’ll walk the route ourselves, and see first-hand the improvements that enhance the safety and comfort of students who walk and bike to school.
