Monday October 9, 2017

On October 9, 2017, the Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan (BPAP) team presented to the City Council of Culver City. When the item was up for discussion, about 10 members of the public remained in the audience.

There were two presentations.  The first was focused on Public Outreach and the second on the concept of Vision Zero.

The goal of the first presentation was to inform the Councilmembers about the plans for community outreach and to solicit ideas on which community groups and stakeholders should be part of the community outreach.  The Community outreach is critical to the success of this plan — and the project team will be reaching out for ideas and feedback from a wide variety of stakeholders across Culver City.  Throughout the end of 2017 and into 2018, the project team will be meeting with neighborhood associations, business groups, and other community groups. Meanwhile, everyone is invited to attend community meetings, open houses, and demonstration projects.  To stay up to date on our public events, sign-up for the announcement list!

The goal of the second presentation was to inform Councilmembers about Vision Zero, and respond to the previous directive from City Council to identify collision trends in order to inform the Council’s decision whether or not to adopt a Vision Zero policy.  Councilmembers were supportive of adopting a Vision Zero policy and directed staff to draft a formal resolution for adoption. The collision analysis from Vision Zero will inform the prioritization and network development for the Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan, and once the Vision Zero policy is adopted, it will shape implementation of the BPAP projects.

Thursday July 20, 2017

The first public presentation of the Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan (CCBPAP) was at the Bicycle & Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) on July 20, 2017. The consultant team presented an overview of the project, including key deliverables and milestones.  Seven of the nine committee members were in attendance, along with four members of the public.

The presentation also included a list of possible community stakeholders and community groups that would be engaged in the planning process. The consultant team asked for additional recommendations from the BPAC members, in order to leverage local knowledge from each of the members. A list of recommended community groups was compiled and shared with Culver City staff. To learn more, read the minutes of the meeting.

A similar presentation, scheduled for October 9, 2017, will be given to the Culver City Council in order to ensure that Council members have an opportunity to weigh in on potential community outreach, as well.
