For residents of Portola Valley who have concerns and complaints about pedestrian safety in town, a transportation consultant will be available at the Historic Schoolhouse on Thursday evening, Dec. 6, for a 90-minute meeting with the public.
San Mateo consultant Paul Krupka, using information obtained from the public by the town's Bicycle, Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Committee, has completed an initial assessment of the town's paths, intersections and school zones, as well as traffic patterns at different locations and different times of day.
A statement from Town Hall says Krupka will be making recommendations on how to improve safety – in particular, safety to and from schools – and that he wants to hear "directly" from residents to "complete his understanding of existing conditions."
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Historic Schoolhouse at 765 Portola Road.
A report from Krupka to the Town Council and the committee is expected sometime in early 2019. Comments from residents are "critical" to the success of the report, the Town Hall statement says.
Residents may send comments on pedestrian safety to firstname.lastname@example.org.
