Sign onto our comment letter to Regional Transportation Planning Agency in San Diego County – help strengthen Southern California’s first Countywide Safe Routes to School Strategic Plan
Safe Routes to School Southern California Network and signatory organizations congratulate San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) for releasing the Draft San Diego Regional Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Strategic Plan. It is an excellent start for a regional strategy to improve safety, increase walking and bicycling trips to school and further integrate those trips into Regional Transportation and Land Use Planning.
SANDAG can play a vital role by adopting clear data standards and providing technical assistance for SRTS programs. We recognize SANDAG does not implement SRTS projects. However, SANDAG has the authority to execute valuable planning and policies, monitoring, collaboration, and evaluating that supports counties, cities, communities, researchers, organizations and community groups.
