SUMMARY

 

The proposed Safe Routes for Seniors (SR4S) program fits within “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 has met with senior residents to identify obstacles to walking and developed a set of design solutions to address their concerns to improve walkability and safety. In Partnership with the Community Services Division, $2.7 million of dedicated Measure BB (Paratransit) funds is programed toward the SR4S program, with the intent to implement construction projects, based on the recommended walkability and accessibility improvements to benefit seniors in the downtown core.
