Welcome to Mission: Pedestrian

Welcome to Mission: Pedestrian.

This is the web site of the Mission: Pedestrian citizen’s group. We hope to keep you informed about pedestrian issues in the Cities and County of Santa Cruz, California.

Mission:Pedestrian booth at the Open Streets Event, West Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz 2012

Here you will find news, information and tools to help you stay informed and to get involved in making walking (and other forms of non-automobile transportation) easier in Santa Cruz.

Anyone using the sidewalks (or needing a sidewalk where one does not exist) is a pedestrian. This includes people on foot as well as people using wheelchairs or other mobility-improving devices. Nearly everyone is a pedestrian at some time, even if they walk only from their front door to their car or from their parked car to the market. We are especially interested in making it easier to walk from home to shopping without being forced to use a car because of inadequate pedestrian facilities.

The navigation bar at the top of the page can direct you to web pages that have more information and tools.
