Safe Routes for Seniors (SRS) Program

 

RECOMMENDATION

 

That the Committee reviews and provides feedback on the proposed Safe Routes for Seniors (SRS) Program.

 

SUMMARY

 

Safe Routes for Seniors (SRS) are safe routes for everyone, which precisely fits Hayward Walks’ mission to make walking in Downtown Hayward safe, pleasant, and accessible for all. In collaboration with local senior housing facilities, senior centers, and community-based organizations, staff will meet with senior residents to identify obstacles to walking, develop a set of design solutions to improve walkability and safety for senior residents, and advocate for physical changes on the streets and sidewalks. The study area is in Downtown Hayward between A Street, D Street, Foothill Boulevard, and the BART tracks and consists of eight corridors, eighteen signalized, and three unsignalized intersections. Staff anticipates that the design will be completed in late December 2019, with construction anticipated to start in February 2020.
