Local Road Safety Plan Survey Available

Your Comments are Important to Us! Please Complete Brief Online Survey

The City of Goleta Public Works Department is asking community members and stakeholders to complete a brief online survey for the Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP). The plan provides an analysis of 5-year collision data and trends. The goal is to use this information to coordinate the efforts of a wide range of organizations to reduce traffic accident fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads.

The survey can be found on the project website at https://tinyurl.com/GoletaTrafficSafetyStudy. The survey is designed for the community to provide feedback and add comments on the City’s local roads and an interactive City map to add comments to a location. The Survey will remain open through June 30, 2021.

To learn more about the LRSP, to go the project page on the City’s website where you can find the draft document and potential counter-measure options.  On the project page you will also find a recording of a recent virtual meeting where community members and staff discussed the safety of our local roads.  Thank to those who participated. If you missed it, here is a link to the recording

City of Goleta Public Works Department, Sr. Project Engineer James Winslow is encouraging community members to take time out and complete the survey.  He said, “We are excited to be able to incorporate community input into this local road process, which is typically only data-driven. The online survey and interactive map allow more community members to provide input on our local roads and raise awareness on the various potential options and seek input and feedback on what works in Goleta.”

The City of Goleta was awarded a Local Road Safety Plan (LRSP) grant in the amount of $53,000. The LRSP grant program is part of the Federal Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) program and is designed to provide funding to local agencies to develop a LRSP. The LRSP addresses the 4E’s of traffic safety: Engineering, Enforcement, Education, and Emergency Services.
