Design Studios Landscape Development proudly announces the successful completion of the Montalvo ‘Safe Routes to School’ project. This groundbreaking collaboration, funded by a substantial $1 million in Measure O funding along with a significant $1.38 million CalTrans grant, marks a transformative milestone for the Montalvo neighborhood in Ventura.
The comprehensive project features a range of enhancements aimed at improving safety, accessibility, and the overall identity of the Montalvo area. The key highlights of this project include the installation of over 2 miles of continuous sidewalks, creating a safe pathway for pedestrians. Additionally, a mile of new bike lanes has been added, providing a dedicated space for cyclists, contributing to a more bike-friendly environment.
Moreover, the project boasts the integration of 12 new curb ramps, alongside the reconstruction of 26 existing curb ramps, greatly increasing accessibility for individuals with disabilities. With the introduction of 27 new pedestrian and bike crossings, the area has been further fortified to ensure safer passage for all residents.
Design Studios Landscape Development also took a distinctive approach by incorporating Montalvo landmark signage, fostering a sense of identity and community pride within the neighborhood. Adding to the aesthetics and environmental quality, a significant 12,000 square feet of new landscape area was created, contributing to the area’s overall greenery and appeal.
“We are thrilled to have been a part of this transformative project,” said Principal Architect, Roberto Leo at Design Studios Landscape Development. “Enhancing the Montalvo neighborhood’s identity while simultaneously prioritizing safety and accessibility has been a fulfilling endeavor for our team.”
The completion of the Montalvo ‘Safe Routes to School’ project stands as a testament to the dedication and commitment of Design Studios Landscape Development in creating spaces that not only enhance the visual landscape but also prioritize the safety and well-being of the community.
Design Studios Landscape Development extends its deepest gratitude to the Ventura community for entrusting them with the role of Landscape Architect for this vital project. The team looks forward to continuing to contribute positively to the community’s landscape and fostering environments that enrich the lives of residents.
