Ensuring public safety is a cornerstone of community planning, affecting every department and shaping our roles as planners. Join us for an enlightening session with the City of Laguna Niguel to explore innovative strategies that have elevated bicycle and pedestrian safety at a local middle school. This multidisciplinary initiative leveraged partnerships between public and private sectors, fostered interdepartmental collaboration, secured community and stakeholder buy-in, engaged students, and implemented engineering solutions. Recently honored with APA Orange Section's Implementation Award of Excellence, the program serves as a compelling case study on how cities can collaborate effectively with law enforcement and educational institutions to advance pedestrian and bike safety. 1.5 CM Credits.
