Davis police, city officials and business representatives will serve as hosts March 30 for a downtown Safety Walk.

The walk will focus on identifying burned-out lights, tripping hazards, areas where improved lighting is needed, area where trees or shrubbery block sidewalks or pose hazards, and other safety concerns in the downtown area, according to a Police Department news release.

Community members will be teamed with city representatives, who will record the identified deficiencies, hazards and concerns so the city can make repairs or work with its downtown partners on improvements.

Joining city officials as hosts for the walk will be representatives of the Davis Chamber of Commerce and Davis Downtown.

Residents, business owners and students are encouraged to join. Participants will meet at 8 p.m. at the Davis Downtown kiosk in front of the Amtrak train station, 826 Second St., near the corner of Second and H streets. Those taking part in the walk are advised to wear comfortable shoes.

For more information, email Lt. Glenn Glasgow of the Davis Police Department at gglasgow@davispd.org.
