Richmond is working on a plan aimed at making the city safer and easier to walk and bicycle in. 

A $250,000 Caltrans environmental justice grant and $100,000 grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission is paying for the planning effort by health, transportation and land-use experts and the public.

The idea: reduce collisions injuring pedestrians and bicycles. 

Meetings on the pedestrian portion of the plan will be held Wednesday (May 19, and Thursday, and Saturday.
