The City received a Pedestrian Enhancement Grant from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority to improve patron safety along Big Basin Way while taking into account the unique and historic environment of the Village. Primarily, work will be focused on pedestrian safety improvements and beautification of the Village. This is the first in a series of meetings where members of the public will get to share their thoughts on improvements to the Village streetscape.
Some of the planned improvements include:
- Sidewalk improvements
- Pedestrian bulb outs
- Crosswalk lights in the pavement
- Hanging plant baskets (on the light poles)
- Streetscape furniture
