We just found out about this bike planning for safe routes to school event that is happening tomorrow, Decemeber 5th, 2018.
The Petaluma High School Safe Routes to School Community Meeting is coming up this Wednesday December 5, 6:00-7 PM in the Petaluma High School Library at 201 Fair Street. This event is hosted by the Center for Climate Protection’s ECO2School Program (based in Santa Rosa, http://www.climateprotection.org) and will include representatives from the Petaluma Police and the City’s Public Works departments.
In leading up to this Community Meeting, the project team has gathered background and existing conditions information on walking, biking, and using public transit to and from campus (draft files here: full memo with map; map only).
In addition, a walking audit was held in Spring 2018 with school officials, students, and community members around the access points to the school grounds to identify critical pedestrian, bike, and public transit infrastructure safety issues.
Based on that research and input, the following was completed in draft form:
- Suggested Routes to School maps (walking, biking, and public transit access points)
- List of critical walking and biking safety issues which need to be addressed
- List of associated recommendations for improvements to address these crucial issues
These three elements will be reviewed at the meeting. The Network for Climate Solutions and their collaborators are looking for input from the public and City officials to see if there are any additional comments or to tell us if we have missed anything. This invaluable input will help to finalize the map and plans for future improvements in the Petaluma High School community.
