Pasadena Walks! is a project designated to develop a Pedestrian Plan for Pasadena. The project will identify barriers to walking and options to improve such barriers. Over the course of the project, the project team will conduct a number of activities to inform plan development, including:
- Review of citywide pedestrian collision data
- Collect public input and feedback via a survey, focus groups, and outreach
- Conduct presentations to update stakeholders and the public on our progress
- Collect counts of Pedestrians currently walking on city streets
According to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, traffic crashes are the number one cause of premature death in the County for children aged 5-14. Vehicle collisions are also the number two cause of premature death for children 1-4, young adults 15-24, and adults 25-44.
The project will review local collision data as part of the planning process to identify locations that are most difficult for people walking in Pasadena. This data may then be used to help prioritize future investments and safety improvements.
How can I get involved?
People who live, work, or play in Pasadena are invited to help the City develop plans for a safer, healthier, more walkable Pasadena.
