Assessment Appendix A.
The Community Pedestrian Plan will help the County address corridors in Willowbrook that have concentrations of collisions, identified in red on the map.
These corridors were identified as having had 3 or more fatal or severe injury collisions within a half mile segment between 2013-2017.
These corridors are the focus of the County’s new traffic safety initiative called,
Vision Zero, which aims to eliminate fatal injury traffic collisions on County roadways by 2035.
These corridors are part of the 3.8% of County maintained roadways where 50% of all fatal and severe injury collisions have occurred.
By working with community to understand concerns and opportunities for walkability enhancements the Pedestrian Plans will help the County achieve the Vision Zero goal.
The Department of Public Health has partnered with Los
Angeles Walks (LA Walks), a pedestrian advocacy
organization, to lead the community outreach and engagement
efforts in the Willowbrook community.
LA Walks, along with County partners, will be leading
workshops, mapping activities, and listening sessions to
hear from residents, local business leaders, and other
stakeholders on the strategies that they want to see
implemented for improving walkability in the community.
Workshops and other activities will be virtual throughout
2021 and will be bilingual. Youth, families, seniors, and
anyone interested in providing ideas or learning about
pedestrian planning is highly encouraged to participate.
