Piedmont Safer Streets Report Finds Almost All Citizens Walking During Pandemic

Here’s what you told us!

The City recently gathered input from residents on the needs and challenges around walking, biking and traffic safety in Piedmont. A report summarizing the key issues and themes raised by the community, and also listing all the comments received in writing, is available on the Documents page of the project website.

Using this input, the project team is now starting to develop the recommendations for the Piedmont Safer Streets plan. Stay tuned for an update on the recommendations in about two months’ time.
