This Friday August 28 at 3pm a coalition of local groups is hosting a virtual walk audit of three streets in Costa Mesa:
Newport Boulevard from 19th to 17th
West 19th from Harbor to Placentia
Fairview from Baker to Fair
The online meeting will divide attendees up into three groups, one for each street. Attendees will virtually walk/bike down the streets, making comments on the infrastructure / experience for people who are biking and walking, and then propose improvements that would help make the locations better for those outside of cars.
Results of this meeting will collated into a report that will be delivered to the City of Costa Mesa along with Caltrans. This is timely, as Caltrans is currently exploring if the community would support adding biking and walking improvements to Newport Blvd.
