November 4, 2017 La Ballona Elementary Fall Festival

The Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan team spent the day conducting outreach and soliciting feedback at La Ballona Elementary School’s 2017 Fall Festival.  Surrounded by face painting, games, and great homemade baked goods, parents and community members stopped by our booth to review the existing 2010 plan recommendations, learn about Vision Zero, and provide feedback on the La Ballona Elementary Safe Routes to School project, which is currently in development.

People who stopped by the booth could review 9 presentation boards detailing these projects in Culver City.  We also provided opportunities for people to provide feedback that mirrored the systems on the website. People were encouraged to:

  1. Provide locations of problem areas or recommendation on an interactive map.
  2. Complete a print version of our survey.
  3. Fill out a comment card for general feedback.

While the La Ballona Safe Routes to School project is not technically part of the Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan, it is working to serve similar goals of a safer trip by providing protected bikeways and crosswalk improvements around La Ballona Elementary. The project will provide a key connection from the bike path along Culver Boulevard to the school, as well as improved crosswalks and curb ramps throughout the neighborhood. If you have feedback on the project, please use our comment form and we will pass your comment on to city staff.

If you missed us at La Ballona Elementary Fall Festival, you can attend a follow-up meeting, where the same materials will be on display, on November 16th, 2017 from 5:00 – 6:00 PM at Culver City City Hall. A presentation to the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) will follow the Open House.  And, you can always review our project documents, including the presentation boards that were on display in our Documents page.

And a special thank you to everyone who stopped by and joined us at La Ballona Elementary! Go Lions!
