The PRC's Youth Community Advisory Board (YCAB) will attend a two hour training on Tuesday, February 25th, to learn how to conduct a walkability assessment using the Pedestrian Environmental Quality Index (PEQI) tool, which was developed by the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The tool is an on-the-ground, observational survey that assesses intersection safety, traffic, street design, land use, and perceived safety. YCAB members will then partner with PRC staff to assess the walkability in the area surrounding the Rancho Dominguez Preparatory High School in Carson, CA on Saturday, March 15th.
On March 1st, 2014, City of Carson, in partnership with UCLA PRC, will hold a public workshop at Veterans Sports Complex for community input for the development of an Active Transportation Plan. Participants will have the opportunity to share their vision for a walkable, bikeable, healthier community
