Transportation and Ped Safety High Priority, Says City

Published

on

Concerned that transportation and ped safety resources might have been cut at City Hall after a tip on our site, Weho Daily checked in with Helen Goss at City Hall.

“Transportation, traffic and pedestrian safety issues in West Hollywood remain a high-priority and we anticipate these efforts will be enhanced NOT reduced,” said the City’s official response.

An outcry for safer streets came from the public after the latest death of a pedestrian, Derrick Gardner, who was killed on San Vicente on July 1.  Council member John Duran said that he would like to wait until emotions calmed down to make long term decisions about pedestrian safety in West Hollywood.

“There have been no layoffs and there are no layoffs planned at the City of West Hollywood,” said the City’s statement from Goss today. “The person you are referring to is the former Transportation Manager in the City’s Community Development Department who was not laid off.”

Bob Cheung, who currently serves as Senior Transportation Planner, is currently serving in that position as the Acting Transportation Manager, according to the statement.

Weho Daily is eager to hear about a concerted effort to increase pedestrian safety in West Hollywood. As part of that effort, we would like to see the city adopt an official “Complete Streets” policy.

    Though a pedestrian was just killed on a long stretch of crosswalk-free main street where people have been asking for a crosswalk for years, we are fully committed to blah blah blah. City Hall: flap your mouths at reality and hope that it goes away.
