Sustainable Transportation and Land Use Study
City of Glendale
West Glendale Sustainable Transportation and Land Use Study
This project will prepare complete streets and land use studies within SCAG HQTA designated areas in the West Glendale Community Plan area and will help guide policy change and infrastructure upgrades aimed at improving multi-modal safety, increasing equity of access to the area's significant destinations, and encouraging land uses that support reducing vehicle miles traveled and greenhouse gas emissions. The community-driven Study will build off a robust outreach program empowering community members, stakeholders, and relevant agencies. Key components of the Study will include a protected bike lane feasibility study on Glenoaks Boulevard, land use concepts, and implementation measures.
