||In order to preserve the beauty and safety of our island community, we must make our voices heard to the City Council, the Planning Board, Alameda Unified School District, the business community and remain constantly vigilant about issues protecting our children and seniors as they venture out and walk throughout Alameda.
Remember: Walking is also a mode of transportation and must be taken seriously by our city planners.
The following issues in Alameda involve pedestrian concerns:
Webster Street Renaissance
Park Street Streetscape Project
Alameda Point Development
School Crossing Guards
Drop-off & pick-up traffic at schools
Safe Routes to Schools
