As part of the Culver City Bicycle and Pedestrian Initiative, the City of Culver City and Linwood E. Howe Elementary School will host a Safe Routes to School Workshop. Safe Routes to School is a statewide and national program to increase safe biking and walking to schools. Invited attendees include representatives from Linwood E. Howe, Culver City Unified School District, Culver City Public Works Department, Culver City Police Department, Downtown Neighborhood Association, Gateway Neighborhood Association, Rancho Higuera Neighborhood Association, East Culver City and Linwood Howe parents. This is an opportunity for attendees to participate in a comprehensive all-day workshop to identify improvements needed to increase the safety and accessibility of biking and walking routes to Linwood E. Howe. After the workshop, consultants will prepare a funding application to the State of California for Linwood E. Howe to implement streetscape improvements and programs to encourage parents and children to walk and bike to school.
