experience of walking in Willowbrook/West Rancho
In 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.
Stakeholders 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 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
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
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.
