Azusa Walks is a one-year effort to develop the City’s first Pedestrian Master Plan. Azusa Walks will provide an overview of the pedestrian travel network in the City, identify barriers and provide options to improve conditions that will encourage walking. Azusa Walks will make walking in the City safer, comfortable, convenient and more accessible for pedestrians of all ages and abilities.
Benefits of developing Azusa Walks include:
Increases pedestrian safety
Provides an alternative to driving
Connects to transit
Increases social interactions on streets
Improves physical and mental health
Builds strong communities and livable neighborhoods
Over the course of the next year the project team will conduct a number of activities to inform development of the plan, including:
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
Review of citywide pedestrian collision data
