In 2022, the City hired a consultant to evaluate and design the recommended improvements, and to prepare cost estimates. After the designs are complete, a contractor will be hired to build the improvements.
The City already reviewed the striping and signage recommendations from the eight school SSA’s, and installed the items that the City saw as applicable. The remaining recommendations, which are included in this project, require a mixture of, but are not limited to, data collection, warrant analysis, civil review, and funding considerations. It is up to the Consultant and City to determine what is appropriate to implement based on the exact conditions and available funds.
Past, planned, and proposed safety improvements for all Alameda schools, including this group of eight schools, are shown at the end of the Street Safety Around Schools Report (2021), in Attachment A: School Safety Assessments with City Notes. The Consultant will only consider the Proposed Improvements items from Attachment A. Listed past and planned improvements are shown on the maps for context.
