SCAG Issues Call for Proposals for Active Transportation Demonstration Projects!

scag50logoAs part of The Southern California Association of Governments’ (SCAG) Active Transportation Safety and Encouragement Campaign, SCAG is offering an opportunity for communities to host events that inspire more people to walk and bike through education, encouragement and a “sneakers-on” experience. For one day or up to one month during May (Bike Month) 2016, SCAG will support local communities in transforming streets through temporary improvements (or pop-ups), street “festivals” and other fun activities that increase awareness of active transportation and complete street concepts.

The event should focus on the following goals:

  • Provide opportunities where residents can experience walking and biking in a safe, low-stress and festive environment,
  • Engage communities and building support for the development and/or implementation of bike and pedestrian infrastructure and/or plans,
  • Educate participants on the benefits and strategies for incorporating active transportation into daily activities and
  • Generate media coverage through social and traditional media outlets to educate the broader community on the benefits of active transportation.
  • OPEN STREET EVENTS

Safe Routes to School projects are one of the eligible activities. Events would occur within walking or bicycling distance of a school at a busy intersection or along a corridor that is in need of improvements and would highlight infrastructure improvements that could be made to the corridor for students walking and bicycling to and from school.

Applications are due June 30. More information on how to apply is available here.
