City of Sacramento staff want to hear from Tahoe Park residents about a new area in their neighborhood that could host “slow and active streets.”
The area would become part of an ongoing citywide program that will close up to six miles of Sacramento roads to through-traffic and make them available for walking, bicycling and other forms of non-static activity.
“The City has seen a lot of involvement from our communities as they nominate their own neighborhood to be a part of the slow and active streets program,” said Transportation Planning Manager Jennifer Donlon Wyant. “There is a lot of excitement to bring this program to different communities across the city and we look forward to working with Tahoe Park residents around the nomination for Slow & Active Streets.”
The City recently began a formal process to hear from residents through an online survey and virtual community discussions about potential concerns with bringing the program to new neighborhoods. The next virtual community discussion for Tahoe Park residents is scheduled for 5 p.m. May 7.
Residents living in the Tahoe Park area of 58th Street and 11th Avenue are encourage to participate in an upcoming virtual meeting and take a survey.
Below are the proposed routes:
- 58th Street between 7th Ave and 20th Ave
- 11th Avenue between 53rd St and Kroy Way
