Community Engagement

Over the past four years, we have petitioned CD4, CD13 and LADOT; voluntarily prepared a collision analysis of The Avenue; hosted walk audits; staged pop-up events; and met for virtual meetings. By growing our coalition of supporters, we anticipate the City Council Members will act on an effective safety action plan.

We continue to reach out directly to businesses and meet with school organizations for their official endorsements.

If you would like to assist in the process, please email: Hyperion-safety@losfeliznc.org
