LADOT Releases 'Great Streets for Los Angeles' Strategic Plan, Sets Vision Zero Goal
"Mayor Eric Garcetti and the city Department of Transportation released a strategic plan Monday aimed at making them safer and more accessible by 2025," reports Rick Orlov.
The 61-page strategic plan, titled “Great Streets for Los Angeles,” according to Orlov, "looks toward ending all pedestrian-related deaths, improving safety around public schools and changing the timing of streetlights to account for the amount of time it takes people to cross streets."
Writing for Streetsblog LA, Damien Newtown offers a clear endorsement, calling the plan "bold," "excellent," and a "quantum leap forward" for holistic thinking in LADOT.
