The pop-up event focused on traffic safety, will be hosted by Altadena Town Council in partnership with Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), California Walks, Bike LA, and the Altadena Neighborhood Farmers Market on Friday, September 8th.
Residents will experience a demonstration bike lane, bike valet, pop-up mini-park, and a curb extension while Committee volunteers gather input and feedback about the safety issues residents are experiencing and changes they would like to see in their neighborhoods. The event came together with the support of the Board of Supervisors, LA County Public Works, and LA Parks.
“Altadena is a growing, diverse community with more people getting around by bike, walking, horseback riding and of course driving ,” says Altadena Town Council Representative Dorothy Wong, “however not all our streets are safe. We’ve had students struck by cars crossing the road to school, elderly residents unable to get out of their driveways due to speeding cars, and families who just want to ride or walk safely to the park. The purpose of this event is to bring awareness about traffic safety, gather residents’ feedback, and advocate for change with LA County.”
