Recommendations to Improve Pedestrian Safety in the Town of Paradise


In response to the recent death of a Paradise youth who was struck on Skyway Road, the Town of Paradise invited California WALKS to facilitate a workshop providing community residents, Town staff members, and other professionals with an overview of pedestrian safety best practices, to conduct a walkability assessment of areas near the downtown core, and to lead small group discussions to develop specific recommendations for Town Council to improve the safety and walkability of Paradise. This report summarizes overall walkability and pedestrian safety observations of downtown Paradise, as well as specific recommendations from community residents who attended the September 5, 2013, Community Pedestrian Safety Training facilitated by California WALKS staff members. This report is intended for use by Town of Paradise staff members, parents, community residents, and professionals.
