The Pacific Palisades Community Council learned last week that the first phase of Sunset Safety Week could begin within the next month.
Joaquin Maceas, field deputy for City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl's office, said the Safety on Sunset Committee opted to break the program into two phases: passive and educational. The first phase, which has been approved by the city council, Brentwood Community Council and Pali Community Council Executive Board, is posting banners promoting driving safety awareness along Sunset Boulevard in the 90049 and 90272.
"We imagine we'll submit those to a company for fabrication and then 10 to 15 days for manufacturing," he said, aiming to have the banners ready to be installed along Sunset Boulevard.
The second phase will be community outreach and an doing educational talks on driving safety along Sunset in local schools, to coincide with Citywide Traffic Safety Week.
Members of Streetwise Media and Palisades Charter High School were at last week's community council meeting to receive a proclamation from Rosendahl's office on earning a last fall. The "Celebrate My Drive" campaign, organized by the non-profit's "In One Instant" program, awarded grants to only 14 schools across the U.S. and Canada.
