The City of Sacramento is hosting two online community workshops to present proposed transportation improvements for the Pocket Greenhaven neighborhood. The virtual meetings will be held Wednesday, March 24 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and Thursday, March 25 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. via Zoom.
“The Pocket Greenhaven neighborhood is a community with great schools, parks, and businesses,” said Councilmember Rick Jennings, District 7. “But since development started in the 1960s, quite a few things have changed – including how community members choose to get around. The Pocket Greenhaven Neighborhood Transportation Plan will help us prepare for the future by addressing the mobility and safety needs of our neighbors who drive, walk, bike, scoot and ride transit.”
Based upon community feedback and technical analysis, the City and project team identified three key objectives for the plan’s recommendations: slowing vehicles, improving safety and increasing pedestrian comfort especially when crossing streets. Some of these proposed recommendations include roundabouts and traffic circles, raised crosswalks, lane reductions, lane narrowing and speed lumps.
“After a year-long process of collecting and analyzing data and hearing from the community, the City and project team have developed a set of proposed improvements to make it safer and easier for everyone to get around the neighborhood,” said Leslie Mancebo, transportation planner with the City of Sacramento. “We encourage the community to attend our online workshops and provide their input to help inform the Plan.”
The community is invited to hear from the City and project team about key findings from data collection and previous community feedback obtained, learn about proposed changes in the neighborhood and share their thoughts. Community members can register for one of the workshops on the project website at PlanPocketGreenhaven.org.
