In October 2019, the City submitted an application through Caltrans for a Local Roadway Safety Plan (LRSP) grant. The grant will be used to develop a Local Roadway Safety Plan that will identify safety issues within the City’s transportation systems and recommend safety improvements that will mitigate the number of collisions the City experiences. The estimated cost of this project is $80,000.
In December 2019, the City received notification that its application was successful. The grant funding is on a reimbursable basis in the amount of $72,000. The City's local match for this grant is $8,000.
Staff is asking the City Council to accept the grant and create the Local Roadway Safety Plan project. In doing so, the City Council is also asked to appropriate the necessary funding for the grant amount and the local match funds.
