UPDATE: FLETCHER DRIVE STILL ON LADOT’S ROAD DIET RADAR

Flush with new funding L.A.’s Department of Transportation (LADOT) is still eyeing Fletcher Drive, between San Fernando Road and Riverside Drive, for pedestrian/bicycle safety improvements via it’s “Vision Zero” program. As part of it’s “Phase 1 Implementation” LADOT seeks to increase safety along Fletcher Drive with such low-cost measures like roadway re-striping, lane tightening or lane reductions, painted intersection tightening and the addition of buffered bike lanes; all collectively known as a road diet.

Back in 2017 LADOT attempted to force a road diet on Fletcher Drive despite widespread community opposition. LADOT’s 2017 road diet plans were drafted without any community input and failed to take into account that Fletcher Drive is major vehicular artery for local drivers and far-flung commuters and a vital access route to geographically isolated residential areas. (Click here for more information on LADOT's 2017 plans).

This time around LADOT has promised a “robust” community engagement strategy for 2019 so that all members of the community are aware of a project’s safety benefits and tradeoffs. Despite this promise LADOT has not engaged Atwater Village thus far and has provided no public updates beyond a January 2019 interdepartmental memorandum.

Trick or Treat on the BOOLevard Safety Tips

Walk Safely

  • Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks

  • Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross

  • Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them

  • Always walk on sidewalks or paths

Keep Costumes Creative and Safe

  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible choose light colors

  • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct and child’s vision

  • Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers

  • When selecting a costume, make sure it is the right size to prevent trip and falls.

This post contains important instructions on how to participate in this year’s Trick or Treat on the BOOlevard event, please read the whole post.


September 2018

To: All Glendale Blvd. Atwater Village Merchants

Halloween is coming upon us which of course means it is just about time for the Annual Fall Festival, or ‘Trick or Treat on the BOOlevard’ event! This year, your Atwater Village Chamber of Commerce has again agreed to sponsor this very popular event, and we are hoping to confirm your participation.

The date and time are Friday, October 26th, 2018 - between 4:30pm and 6:00pm. The Atwater Village Chamber will be providing some candy and other fun items to give to the hundreds (thousands?) of children who visit every year. We will be out decorating Glendale Blvd before the event, providing volunteer crossing guards and other fun holiday activities for that day.

WHAT WE NEED FROM GLENDALE BLVD MERCHANTS:

  • Confirm your participation and the contact person for your business
  • Confirm if you'll be providing either all or some of your own candy/toys to give away
  • If applicable, confirm if volunteers can deliver candy/toys to your business on Friday morning (10/26/2018)
  • Allow the display of posters at your business storefront with pedestrian visibility

We are very excited about this year's event, and your partnership is very much needed and appreciated. To confirm your participation or for event related questions, please contact Lara Pranger directly via email at laralov@yahoo.com
