The Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan (BPAP) team is working to make sure students and caregivers can safely get to and from schools throughout Culver City. On Tuesday, April 24, we presented an overview of the plan and citywide collision data at the meeting of the Culver City Unified School District (CCUSD) Board. The Commissioners were interested to learn about ways we are working to reduce speeding and cut-through car traffic near schools in order to improve safety.
Beyond outreach, our main goal at the meeting was to promote the 5th Annual Walk & Roll Festival, taking place May 6th, 2018 at Culver City Middle School. A fun, free event for the entire family, staff will be able to help students learn to balance on a bike, the rules of the road, and other fun activities. The BPAP team will also be on-hand, sharing maps of schools and asking caregivers and students for feedback on where they would like to see changes to Culver City’s streets.
We look forward to seeing you at the event! More event details at: http://walkmorebikemore.org
The Culver City Bicycle & Pedestrian Action Plan (BPAP) team was invited to present to the meeting of the Culver City Chamber of Commerce’s Issues and Eggs breakfast on March 29th. Alongside Walk ‘n Rollers Founder Jim Shanman and Transportation Director Art Ida of Culver City Transportation, at least 30 Chamber members learned about the future of mobility in Culver City and how to provide feedback on the BPAP.
After the presentations, there was a Question and Answer session where members of the public provided specific recommendations on improving the safety of Culver City residents and strengthening the local economy. A great discussion was had by everyone – discussing opportunities for changes today, like more crosswalks and opportunities in the future like Microtransit and autonomous vehicles.
Thanks to Chamber of Commerce’s President/CEO Colin Diaz for organizing such a great event! If you were unable to attend the meeting, we still want to hear from you. Please see our main page at CulverCity.BikePedPlan.com for numerous opportunities to provide feedback on existing and proposed street elements.
