City invites residents to help make a more walkable community


February 25, 2011 (La Mesa)--The “La Mesa Kids Walk & Roll to School ” Safe Routes program is inviting the public to attend Walkability Workshops being held at local schools.

 

This workshop will consist of a short Safe Routes to School training, a Walk Audit in the neighborhood to identify and document barriers to walking and bicycling, and a mapping session to prioritize recommendations. From the community input gathered at the workshop, a report will be developed for the City of La Mesa’s Public Works department to use when planning Safe Routes to School infrastructure improvements and to leverage funding for future projects.
