This effort will result in a new bicycle and pedestrian master plan beginning with an assessment of existing bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure.
While the project will address active transportation needs citywide, engagement will be focused in three focus areas: South Sacramento, North Sacramento, and Fruitridge/ Broadway.
“We’re looking forward to hearing from people in areas of high need and historical disinvestment about their experiences and barriers to walking, biking and taking transit to important destinations,” said Senior Transportation Planner Leslie Mancebo.
Community members can guide the development of the plan in a variety of ways including joining City staff at community workshops.
In the coming weeks, staff will host four in-person and two virtual workshops for people to learn more about the plan and provide input.
Residents can register for the workshops online.
Upcoming Community Workshops:
July 26, 6-7:30 p.m.
Colonial Heights Library
July 27, 6-7:30 p.m.
Robertson Community Center
Aug. 2, 6-7:30 p.m.

Staff are also gathering data through an online survey and interactive map available on the project website. Categories for feedback include routes and network gaps, concerns, destinations, and tree canopy needs.
Additional walking workshops will be scheduled soon, providing the opportunity to walk with the project team and share ideas.
Once complete, the plan will identify barriers to walking, biking, rolling, and access to transit, and provide fundable, actionable project recommendations with the objective of improving safety and mobility and creating a connected active transportation network.
