Thank you to everyone who participated in our first regional online survey and at our parish meetings. We had a record 1066 surveys completed with almost 20,000 points of data and over 800 comments. Your information will be invaluable as we move forward through the planning process. Please stay in touch through this website and our social media outlets.
About the Plan
SCPDC received funding from the Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development (LADOTD) to complete a 3-year BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN SAFETY REGIONAL PLAN. This is a data-driven planning project that will include public engagement, best practices, policy recommendations, and identify future projects. We will also be working with our jurisdictions throughout our region to adopt the plan locally. We need your help to create a safe environment for pedestrians and bicyclists in our region.
Why is this plan so important?
