Traffic Safety Town Halls Coming to West LA

By Max Berson

Hey everybody, Max here. Back from the dead!

Since you last heard from me, I’ve joined the Outreach Committee for the Sawtelle-Bundy Traffic Safety Program. The Program will help administer funds that were allocated by developers to mitigate traffic in West LA area. We’re hosting a pair of Town Hall meetings for residents to provide their input to the traffic engineer on the project, and we need your voice! Please check out the email blast that we sent out below, and attend one of both of the Town Halls.  See you there!

The Sawtelle-Bundy Traffic Safety Program invites you to two Town Halls in West LA:

Thursday, April 5, 2012 – 7:00 p.m.
West LA Neighborhood Council Office
1645 Corinth Ave. 2nd floor
Los Angeles, CA 90025
(south of Santa Monica Blvd. behind the Library and Felicia Mahood Senior Center)

and

Saturday, April 14, 2012 – 3:00 p.m.
Stoner Park
1835 Stoner Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90025
(south of Santa Monica Blvd., cross-street is Missouri Ave.)

The goal of this new program is to reduce cut-through traffic and the danger it causes to residents and their families, along with the noise and air pollution also caused by traffic in our neighborhood.

A limited fund has been established to help provide for new stop signs, speed bumps, crosswalks and other solutions for a safer community.

We need to know where the traffic problems are near your homes, and what days and times these traffic problems are at their worst. Please attend one of the town halls to discuss your approach to improving our street safety. You can also provide your feedback by filling out the attached survey and returning to wlatraffic@aol.com, and through an on-line form at the website of the WLA Neighborhood Council at www.wlanc.com.

We all complain about traffic, but this is your chance to provide input to the Sawtelle-Bundy Traffic Safety Program and your City Councilmember, Bill Rosendahl (CD11). A traffic engineer will attend to describe possible traffic mitigations and solutions to make our West L.A. community safer.

Please encourage friends and family to attend. You may also submit written comments / suggestions:
