I’m excited to let folks know that LADOT has begun the process of hiring two Safe Routes to School (SRS) Coordinators. The Department is planning on hiring one SRS Pedestrian Coordinator and at least one Assistant Coordinator position to help develop a SRS Strategic Plan. This Strategic Plan will help the Department prioritize future school serving pedestrian and bicycle facility improvements based on data-driven recommendations. The Strategic Plan will help strengthen LADOT grant applications to improve bicycle and pedestrian access to schools throughout the City.
An informational meeting for the positions will be held on Thursday, January 12th, 2012 at 10:00 am in Caltrans Conference Room 01.040A located on the first floor of the Caltrans building, 100 South Main St. Los Angeles, CA 90012.
For more information/background on the position, you can visit the City Clerk’s website. The linked webpage has links to important supporting documents, including the staff report outlining the goals and objectives of the new positions (PDF). You can also download the job announcement (PDF) we sent out last week, which includes instructions for completing the application package available on the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network, which must be received via email by 10:00 am PST Monday, February 13, 2012.
