In collaboration with the Department of Public Health (DPH), the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) led outreach efforts to gather community input for the development of the West Whittier-Los Nietos Pedestrian Plan. The community outreach strategy was developed based on the Plan goals, as well as an understanding of issues in the community.
Outreach was conducted in two phases. The first phase helped the project team understand
barriers and opportunities for walking in West Whittier-Los Nietos. The second phase of outreach gave community stakeholders an opportunity to respond to the draft Pedestrian Plan and provide additional input on needed pedestrian projects. These efforts took place from August 2016 to September 2018 and included the project team attending existing meetings held by community organizations, schools and neighborhood groups; tabling at community events; focus groups; stakeholder interviews; surveys; two community workshops, community data collection activities; and community walk audits.
