The City of Evanston will be hosting a Pedestrian Safety Public Information Workshop in conjunction with transportation consultants on July 24. The workshop will discuss various pedestrian and vehicular issues throughout Evanston.

“Pedestrian safety is a growing issue in many communities especially during summer months and as we approach the beginning of the next school year,” said Public Works Director Suzette Robinson. “It is our hope to bring a diverse group of community members together in conjunction with city staff to discuss pedestrian safety and strategies.”

The workshop will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on July 24 at the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center in Room 2200, 2100 Ridge Ave. There will be no formal presentation, so residents can stop by at any time during the workshop.

Engineering staff, members of the Evanston Police Department and outside transportation consultants will be on hand to discuss and collect feedback on the following: pedestrian crossing designations and priorities; school route safety and education; high volume pedestrian crossings; and speed-reduction strategies.
