GOLETA — The city of Goleta announced Thursday that it received a grant of $40,000 from the California Office of Traffic Safety to educate the public on the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians.
The funds will go toward a variety of activities that promote bicyclist and pedestrian safety.
Activities include: education workshops geared toward youth and older adults; education on the importance of safety equipment that improves visibility such as reflective armbands, bicycle headlights and taillights; community walks and bicycle safety courses; bicycle helmet inspections; and distribution of bicycle helmets to those in need after education presentations.
All in-person activities will follow COVID-19 safety guidelines, and the program runs through Sept. 30, 2021.
