COMMUNITY OUTREACH

In collaboration with the Department of Public Health (DPH), Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH) led outreach efforts to gather community input throughout the development of the Lake Los Angeles Community Pedestrian Plan. The community outreach strategy was developed based on the Plan's goals, as well as an understanding of existing community-identified issues.

Outreach was conducted in two phases. The first phase helped the project team understand barriers and opportunities for walking in Lake Los Angeles. The second phase of outreach gave community stakeholders a chance to respond to the draft Plan and provide additional input on needed pedestrian projects. These efforts took place throughout the development of the Plan, and included attending existing meetings held by community organizations, schools and neighborhood groups; tabling at community events; focus groups; stakeholder interviews; surveys; two community workshops; and community data collection activities and community walks.

While youth in Lake Los Angeles get more physical activity than the County average, children and adults in Lake Los Angeles need more opportunities for physical activity. County streets are a public resource that can be designed to enable more people to walk for transportation and recreation.

Data table showing childhood obesity and adult obesity are higher in Lake LA compared to LA County overall, Data table showing physical activity for youth ages 5-17 is higher in Lake LA compared to LA County overall, but lower for adults 

A goal of the pedestrian plan is to support healthy lifestyles by making it safer for people to walk. Currently 13.3% of collisions in Lake Los Angeles involve people walking. With your input this plan will identify improvements that can reduce collisions involving people walking so more residents are able to get out and enjoy walking in Lake Los Angeles.
