The Butterfield Corridor Safety Committee, a subcommittee of Butterfield Corridor Safe Streets, has been hard at work over the past year identifying the community’s long-standing concerns and coming up with improvements to address them. This collaborative group includes representatives from the Sleepy Hollow Homes Association, the County of Marin Department of Public Works, the Town of San Anselmo Public Works, local schools, Safe Routes, the Marin County Bicycle Coalition and interested residents.

To Butterfield Corridor Residents, Neighbors and All Users,
WE HEARD YOU! Thanks to all of you (almost 900 strong!) that filled out the recent Butterfield Safety Survey! The response was tremendous and demonstrates how many people use the Butterfield corridor and how much safety is a concern for people walking and biking. The Butterfield Safety Committee is working to improve the safety of the corridor for everyone, in particular vulnerable users (young people and older adults) and those traveling by active modes (walking, scooting, biking, etc.) and your responses go a long way to help inform our work.
Please see the infographic that breaks down the survey responses into areas such as who responded, survey findings, support for changes and importantly, and conclusions drawn from results. Highlights: few people walking and biking are always comfortable on Butterfield, there’s a large number of unreported bike crashes (most involving children), and there is broad support for a designated bike/walk lane in the unincorporated section of Butterfield.
To that end, we hope you will join us for a Community Meeting on April 21 from 6 to 7pm (via zoom) to review the survey, review/discuss concepts for crosswalk at community center and designating the shoulder (in unincorporated Marin) a true bike/walk lane. We will discuss potential issues and solutions arising from these concepts in the entire corridor. If you have questions or comments, please email email@example.com beforehand to make sure we cover/discuss in the meeting. We want to hear from you as a user of the Butterfield corridor!
Thank you for being involved in improving the safety of the Butterfield Road!
