On the first anniversary of the deaths of West Hills residents Pia and Erica Botz and their dog in a tragic accident at Roscoe Boulevard at Jason Avenue, a community ceremony dedicated the new pedestrian crossing signal at the site at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 11.

Scheduled speakers included City Councilmember Mitchell Englander, who arranged for city approval and funding of the signal, and Dan Brin, president of the West Hills Neighborhood Council, which advocated building the project.

In addition to overhead crossing lights, the crosswalk includes LEDs embedded into the pavement on Roscoe Boulevard. The lights are activated by pedestrians as they prepare to cross the street.
