Our Complete Streets campaign continues strong, built around the Complete Streets Coalition of Sacramento.
Recent work includes:
- Working for a Sustainable Communities Strategy that promotes walking, bicycling and transit use and walkable communities in land use planning.
- Hosting a press conference with Representative Doris Matsui urging adoption of Complete Streets at the local, regional and national level.
- Supporting expanding transit service, key to a walkable community, through the TransitRenewal initiative.
- Working with the City and planners to promote active transportation to, from and around proposed entertainment and sports complexes in the downtown Sacramento Railyards.
- Working with AARP, Dan Burden led a walk audit of Fruitridge Road east of Highway 99, resulting in a thorough report on ways to improve it and press coverage in the Sacramento Bee.
- Reviewing, with other local partners, over $22 million in proposed projects under the regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Funding Program.
- Advocated for inclusion of low income communities in Transit Priority Areas for transit-oriented development planning review.
- “What are Complete Streets?” one may ask. To answer that, WALKSacramento worked with coalition partner SACOG to develop a Complete Streets Resource Toolkit, now online for anyone looking for a comprehensive collection of policies, guidelines and technical resources.
