Cities Encouraged to Complete Survey to Update Local Streets and Roads Assessment Needs

Participate by March 18

February 26, 2016
The League of California Cities® is in the process of updating the California Statewide Needs Assessment study to help with efforts to protect transportation funds and advocate for increased funding for local streets and roads maintenance.
 
Cities are urged to participate in the survey to update the data that was provided in 2014.

Data collected will be used to provide reports to Gov. Jerry Brown and the Legislature as the League and local government and transportation partners seek additional funding for local streets and roads, as well as non-pavement assets including sidewalks, lighting, and traffic signals, in future budget years.
 
To complete the survey for your city, visit www.SaveCaliforniaStreets.org and click the button that says, “Click here to participate.” Each city should have received a letter on Jan. 15 with log-in information and a password. If your city did not receive this information, please contact Mimi Liao.
 
March 18 is the deadline to take the survey. View the sample letter and instruction document to learn more about the survey process.  
 
The survey asks for updates on the following categories:
  • Contact Person from your Agency;
  • Pavement condition data;
  • Bridge data;
  • Safety, traffic, and regulatory data; and
  • Funding/expenditure projections. 
Your city’s participation is needed to get to 100 percent. The 2012 study identified a funding shortfall of over $82.2 billion for local streets and roads. To view the 2012 survey and the 2014 update, visit the www.SaveCaliforniaStreets.org website.
