Your Input Needed
Active Transportation Plan
Sacramento County is creating its very first Active Transportation Plan! The Plan will focus on walking, biking, and rolling (strollers, scooters, skateboards etc.). Input from community members (like you!) will help develop this Plan. We hope you will share your experiences, challenges, and vision of walking and biking. At the end of the project, the plan will have a list of project recommendations that will help the County:
  • Solve infrastructure problems for people who walk, bike, and roll
  • Create new routes for people to walk, bike, and roll
  • Make walking and biking easier, safer, and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities
