Help Make Streets Safer Near Linwood Howe School

The 2012-2013 school year starts today in Culver City and parents want to make sure kids are safe as they make their way to and from classes.

The City of Culver City received a $450,000 Safe Routes to School grant from the State (Caltrans) to make improvements to streets around

These improvements have been designed and engineered with community input and support of the City Council and will make it safer for children to walk, bike and scoot to school, as well as improve safety for all residents in the area.

Click here to sign the petition and help make the streets safer around Downtown Culver City and Linwood E Howe Elementary School.

Improving safety for children, and all residents? Any negatives surely pale in comparison. Brilliant initiative.

Re concerned, the "city" was not entirely responsible for the Safe Routes to School Grant, it was a group of parents from LinHowe that were key in researching and working with the city so our "cherished" children would be more visible to traffic to and from school. Absolutely your children should also benefit from Safe Routes to School, but at this point it isn't the city or CCUSD, its with the parents at your school.

@concerned - improvements on Sawtelle have just been approved by council in August - they will be implemented as soon as possible! The improvements at Lin Howe have been part of a 2 year process & have not been implemented yet... City is still gathering public input. Hopefully, the city will get funding & community support to improve streets around all CC schools. I would encourage all concerned to get involved in the process!

@ Meghan thank you for clarifying. And thank you!! Long before you were on council, I know this "brilliant initiative" has really been your baby.
