Priorities for 2023:

  1. Restore Santa Monica's Safe Routes to School program. The City Council cut the staff and budget for the Safe Routes to School program when cutting the city's budget by 25% in 2020. The city's 2023 operating budget is the right time to restore this program at pre-COVID staffing levels now that students are back in person and traffic levels are back to pre-COVID levels.

  2. Provide Resources for Quick-Build Safety Improvements. In 2020, The City Council cut over 40% of the city's transportation planning and engineering budget and staff. This year, the Santa Monica City Council should restore the jobs capital planners and traffic engineers and provide them with a budget needed for quick-build safety improvements that have become common in the City of Los Angeles.
