The City of Visalia is working on submitting a grant application for street improvements within the Washington Elementary community specifically on improving walking and biking within the community.

In order to provide you with a high-quality complete streets and active streets we are conducting a survey of the surrounding area to better understand the local community needs and what areas need improvement. Click HERE to take the survey.

The Washington Elementary School Community, located between Noble Ave and Walnut Ave, is home to many students who attend Washington Elementary School, Mt Whitney High School, and Divisadero Middle School. Thanks to the Active Transportation Program, the City of Visalia is afforded the opportunity to apply for grant funding to not only create safe routes to schools for the students but to also improve the connectivity for the Washington Community at large.

This survey is available in English and Spanish by clicking the globe icon near your top left screen.

Project Goals

The goals of the WCCP is to promote active modes of transportation, such as walking and biking, in the Washington community by creating continuous path of travels to connect the homes, schools, and key neighborhood destinations. In doing so, the project will form safe routes to schools and improve the overall connectivity of the community at large by:

  • Filling in missing gaps of sidewalks to create continuous paths
  • Improving safety by reworking the crosswalks and curb ramps
  • Adding safer bike lanes

Community improvements may include but not be limited to, bulb out construction to improve pedestrian crossings, median construction for traffic calming, protected bike lanes, and/or narrowing of traffic lanes.
