Congrats to Daly City for their newly minted funding from Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to develop the city’s first ever Vision Zero Action Plan! Daly City has an incredible opportunity to improve the lives and neighborhoods of some of the most car-independent commuters in the county. The Action Plan will set the course for city leaders to implement a plan to eliminate traffic deaths in Daly City. The plan is anticipated to be published and adopted in Winter 2019.
Get Healthy SMC Wins Bike Coalition’s Project of the Year!
We are proud to have our safe routes to school equity report recognized by the Silicon Valley Bike Coalition as Project of the Year. This report identified fifteen schools in San Mateo County to focus active transportation funds, programs, and projects located in areas of high poverty and high collisions. We recently presented this work at the 8th annual Silicon Valley Bike Coalition Summit held August 22, 2018 at the Mineta Transportation Institute in San Jose.
Access to a quality job and financial security play a significant role in living a long and healthy life.i However, San Mateo County’s booming economy leaves many residents out of financial well-being. The majority of San Mateo County’s Latina and African American households do not have enough income to meet their basic needsii and unemployment rates for Latina, African American, and Pacific Islander residents are higher than the County average.iii
