Getting There--and Back! How Do We Get Around--Or Not? (In the City and County of Santa Barbara )
With traffic only getting worse and maintenance backlogs growing, what are the City of Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara County doing to meet the challenges? Can we have safe and beautiful streets for all users-walkers, drivers, riders of bikes, buses and rail?
The city and county transportation experts are coming to our forum to show us the why and how of what engaged citizens, city and county leaders and public works staff are doing--our recent past, our current progress and what is ahead.
Speakers are: Jessica Grant, transportation project planner for the City of Santa Barbara, public works traffic department; Rob Dayton, principal transportation planner for the city; and Mike Becker, regional Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG). The moderator will be Susan Horne, Health Educator, member of the SB City Transportation and Circulation Committee and of COAST.
To be held at the Louise Lowry Davis Center, 1232 De La Vina St, Santa Barbara from noon until 2 p.m.
Free and open to the public
