The City of Sacramento is asking the public to weigh in on ways to improve Meadowview road as a driver, bicyclist, and pedestrian. The Meadowview Road and 24th Street Streetscape Project is kicking off with an open house on Thursday, June 4, at the Sam and Bonnie Pannell Community Center, 2450 Meadowview Road. Drop by between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. to view project displays and provide feedback. A presentation will begin at 6 p.m. with an introduction from Councilmember Larry Carr.

The project will make the Meadowview Road experience more attractive. Center road medians with landscaping, monument signage, and pavement treatments at crosswalks will be added to create a sense of place.

“Currently Meadowview Road and 24th Street are auto-dominated thoroughfares with fast moving traffic, making them an unfriendly place to walk or ride a bike,” said Project Manager Jesse Gothan. “The City is looking at ways to make the streets a more inviting and safe place by adding bike lanes, wider sidewalks, and public art.”

The Meadowview Urban Design Plan, completed in 2003, provided guidelines for the ongoing revitalization and beautification of the Meadowview community. Portions of the plan have been accomplished through both private development and City projects. Most recently, the City made improvements to the intersection of Freeport Boulevard and Meadowview Road and constructed a decorative masonry sound wall along the south side of Meadowview Road. The Meadowview Road and 24th Street project will complete the vision. As a part of the project, the City will be submitting an application for additional design and construction grant funds.
