The Mobility Committee is responsible to address issues regarding streets, sidewalks, public transit and traffic. The scope includes bicycles, pedestrians, vehicles and other transportation. These issues can include parking, traffic calming, and road enhancements.

In recent years, crime prevention has become the primary focus of the committee as SRCC residents have made reducing crime in our neighborhoods a major priority. Because of this, we have set up an entirely separate section of the website devoted to our Neighborhood Watch and Patrol program which can be found here:
