You are invited to participate in the second part of the effort to increase pedestrian safety in Rockland. The Rockland Safer Walking Forum will be held on Tuesday, June 26, 6 – 8pm at the South Elementary School. The “Safer Walking Forums” continue the Head’s Up Pedestrian Safety Planning process initiated by the MaineDOT and facilitated by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.
Picking up where the infrastructure-focused “Pedestrian Safety Forum” left off, the Safer Walking Forum will ask community members to think about what specific types of Education and Law Enforcement interventions could be used to improve the safety of people walking. Emphasizing community input, the Safer Walking Forum will include about 75 minutes of brainstorming and idea sharing. Community members will be invited to take on roles in putting into action the ideas developed at the forum.
To see and review all of the data collected at the first pedestrian safety forum, please visit the Pedestrian Safety Forum webpage, and scroll down to “Rockland”. The 21 Focus Communities are listed in alphabetical order, with links to the forum presentation, public comments and priority problem locations listed below each community.
