Funding for these projects came from the first allocation of Measure A South Coast Bicycle & Pedestrian and Safe Routes to School Programs.
Jim Kemp, SBCAG Executive Director said, “The first cycle of Measure A South County Bicycle & Pedestrian and Safe Routes to Schools Programs has been a great success A wide variety of projects will be funded that will fill gaps in the South Coast regional bicycle/pedestrian network, rehabilitate important infrastructure on the existing network, facilitate bicycle usage, promote ADA mobility, and increase the safety of children walking and riding bikes to school. These are exactly the types of improvements promised to voters from the Bicycle & Pedestrian and Safe Routes to School Programs in the Measure A Investment Plan.”
The cities of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara, Goleta and the County of Santa Barbara, many schools, PTAs and civic groups that promote bicycle and pedestrian usage participated in the process by either submitting projects for consideration or participating on the scoring committee.
The North County Bike/Pedestrian/Safe Routes to School program funding recommendations will be presented to the North County Subregional Committee and SBCAG Board in February for approval.
Attached are the specific projects that were awarded funding from the South County Safe Routes to School Program and the Bicycle & Pedestrian Program.
