#SAstreetsforall: Riding, Walking to Make Santa Ana Streets Safer, Better

#SAstreetsforall: Riding, Walking  to Make Santa Ana Streets Safer, Better

The heat poured down on Santa Ana yesterday, but it didn’t deter residents from coming out to give their thoughts and ideas on how to better our city streets.
Walking
Residents and community members walked and bike with city staff, KTU+A and staff and had the chance to not just describe how they feel about certain streets, but also to hit the pavement go out for the afternoon to show and describe how they feel on the street.

Santa Ana residents and community members have gathered for the past two days to share their ideas with City staff and design professionals on how to make the City’s streets safer and more connected for all users, especially bicyclists and pedestrians.

More than 50 community members poured over maps Thursday evening at Jerome Park and described things like their top destinations, the routes they take, and how these routes could be improved.

You’ll get your chance again today to have your voice heard. We’ll be doing another round of walks and bike rides, this time the area south of Mcfadden Avenue.

We hope to see you there!
