Help Fix Roads and Sidewalks
Safe Streets volunteers are helping their local public works departments identify and fix key safety issues on streets, sidewalks, and paths. In order to address safety issues systematically, volunteers conduct what we call a "Street and Sidewalk Safety Inventory," where they document safety issues using a simple inventory sheet and then enter them into an online system called SeeClickFix.com. This system organizes the reports into categories, and Local Motion then forwards them to the appropriate public works department for follow-up.
There are three criteria that define the kinds of issues we're looking to inventory:
We piloted the Street and Sidewalk Safety Inventory in South Burlington in fall 2011. We will roll out the project on a much larger scale in spring 2012. Sign up to inventory safety issues in your community today! Local Motion staff will contact you once the weather warms up with details about getting involved.
