Summary of Past Community Outreach

Community Ourreach 1In collaboration with the Department of Public Health and the Department of Public Works, Los Angeles Walks (LA Walks) led outreach efforts to gather community input throughout the development of the draft Willowbrook/West Rancho Dominguez Community Pedestrian Plan.

The first phase of outreach helped the project team understand barriers and opportunities for walking in Willowbrook/West Rancho Dominguez. Efforts include attending existing meetings held by community organizations, schools, and neighborhood groups; tabling at community events; convening focus groups; stakeholder interviews; surveys; community workshops; and community data collection activities.

Outreach 2Stakeholders were also encouraged to complete a survey on their current walking habits, concerns, and desired projects. Public Health and Los Angeles Walks collected a total of 37 surveys, which were available in English and Spanish.

Respondents identified the top three areas of concerns as:

  •  Fear of theft or robbery
  • Poor lighting at night
  •  Aggressive driver behaviors

The The Community Pedestrian Plan will help the County address corridors in Willowbrook that have concentrations of collisions, identified in red on the map.

These corridors were identified as having had 3 or more fatal or severe injury collisions within a half mile segment between 2013-2017.

These corridors are the focus of the County’s Vision Zero traffic safety initiative which aims to eliminate fatal injury traffic collisions on County roadways by 2035.

These corridors are part of the 3.8% of County maintained roadways where 50% of all fatal and severe injury collisions have occurred.

By working with community to understand concerns and opportunities for walkability enhancements the Pedestrian Plans will help the County achieve the Vision Zero goal.
