Tags: Glendale, Safe & Healthy Streets Plan
LACBC has been working on a PLACE Grant funded project with the City of Glendale since the summer of 2008. The main focus of the project is to create a policy document that will support and encourage walking and biking in Glendale for years to come. We named the policy document the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan.
Following almost two years of community outreach, promotional events, and information gathering, the first two drafts of the plan were written and revised in the summer and early fall of 2010. The third draft of the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan was released on January 18, 2011 and will be presented to a joint meeting of the Glendale’s Transportation & Parking Commission and Planning Commission on Monday, January 24, 2011 at 6:00 pm, Council Chambers, Glendale City Hall, 613 East Broadway. We’ll be asking the commissions for their comments on the Draft Plan and for their recommendation to Council for adoption of the Plan.
We encourage Glendale residents and those who work, go to school, or visit Glendale to attend this meeting if you can. Public comment is welcome and encouraged. This meeting is very important as a run-up to a presentation to Council in the near future. Glendale’s local newspaper, the Glendale News-Press published an article about the Commisson meeting and the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan which you can read here.
The revised version of the Draft Safe & Healthy Streets Plan incorporats feedback from the community and Glendale City Staff from October 2010 to January 2011. You can download and save a copy of the revised Draft Plan by clicking on the link below.
