What Type of Improvements Will be Implemented?
Based on previous input from parents and school representatives, residents in the area, the bicycling community and the City Bicycle Advisory Committee, it is clear that Foothill Blvd is a significant crossing barrier for bicycles and pedestrians traveling to/from Bishop's Peak and Pacheco Elementary Schools. As supported by the 2013 Bicycle Transportation Plan, exploring opportunities for pedestrian/bicycle crossing improvements along Foothill Blvd at Patricia Dr/La Entrada Ave and Ferrini Rd will certainly be a high priority as part of this project. City staff will identify other priority locations for potential transportation improvements through review of existing traffic data, crash history and through community input provided as part of this planning process.
How Can You Participate in the Planning Process?
The City of San Luis Obispo appreciates input from its residents and wants to hear your thoughts on the proposed project. The City will begin soliciting input from stakeholders in June 2016 to and will post updates and other project documents on this page throughout the planning process, which is anticipated to take place over the next year.
Public meetings will be scheduled throughout the planning process. Upcoming Project Meetings:
- Community Meeting #1 Summary (Needs Assessment) and Presentation Slides
