Rebuild our streets, prioritizing the needs of the disabilities community, so they are safer for all. Treatments will be ADA compliant and may include landscaped medians, pedestrian refuge islands, blister surfaces, curb extensions, making roads more narrow, adding bike lanes, building bus boarding areas, reducing speed limits, creating café/retail space, etc. These features can help slow vehicle speeds, prevent crashes, and make streets more safe and appealing places to walk, bike, use a wheelchair and (white) cane, and wait for transit. The City could use low-cost/quick-build solutions where applicable.
Example: La Jolla Blvd, Before (2007) & After (2018) - San Diego, CA
Treatments for La Jolla Blvd included landscaped medians, a pedestrian refuge island, curb extensions, made the road more narrow, and made café/retail space.
