Community-led Temporary Demonstrations & Partnerships

3:00 pm ET


  • Alina Borja, Southern California Association of Governments;

Community partnerships are key to meaningful engagement strategies that showcase temporary street redesigns. In this session, speakers from community-based organizations will discuss how they leveraged traffic safety funding and utilized resources from an MPO-hosted lending library to provide meaningful and creative visioning opportunities for impacted and frontline communities. The session will explore the challenges and successes of temporary safety demonstrations, including garnering community buy-in, navigating the permitting process, and moving a temporary project toward implementation. Speakers will discuss how creating local connections to support community engagement can lead to a better understanding of the traffic safety needs of a community. They will detail their experiences with demonstration projects using the Kit of Parts (Kit) lending library of safety materials from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG). The Kit enables partners to test temporary street re-designs projects in their jurisdictions and generate critical support for permanent infrastructure improvements. They will also discuss how they leveraged SCAG traffic safety funding and messaging materials to expand the reach of their demonstration for greater impact.
