Street Story has been developed by UC Berkeley Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC) as a community engagement tool that allows residents, organizations and agencies to collect local information about transportation collisions, near-misses, general hazards and safe locations to travel. The platform surveys the public about roadway experiences and produces a dataset of community input with maps and tables that can be downloaded. Once an entry to Street Story has been made, community groups and agencies can use this information as a part of community needs assessments or transportation safety planning efforts.
The ATRC is working with SafeTREC to develop a new Street Story “Project-Specific” Tool that can be used in future ATP call-for-projects to allow ATP applicants to demonstrate how they engaged the local community and how the agency incorporated the feedback into the project scope. The new tool will include:
Please watch for development of the new ATP Street Story Tool by spring 2020- winter 2020.
