Receive Update on the Safe Routes for Seniors (SR4S) Program                                                             



That the Council Infrastructure Committee (CIC) reviews this report and receives an update on the project status.




The proposed Safe Routes for Seniors (SRS) program fits within Hayward Walks’ mission to make walking in Hayward safe, pleasant, and accessible for all. This is an on-going program that is first targeted in the downtown area due to the highest concentration of senior facilities in the City. However, the program will equitably address accessibility for seniors throughout the Hayward community. In collaboration with local senior housing facilities, senior centers, and community-based organizations, staff met with seniors in the downtown area to identify obstacles to accessibility. Staff then developed a set of design solutions to address these concerns, related to accessibility and safety. Enabled by a re-allocation of $1.9 million dollars of Measure B/BB funds, this program will implement construction projects based on the recommended walkability and accessibility improvements to benefit seniors in the downtown core.
