Final input sought for Active Transportation Plans

The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency and City of Redding are in the final phases of a year-long planning process to improve active transportation in the City of Redding and in the Shasta Region as a whole.  Once complete, the GoShasta Regional and City of Redding Active Transportation Plans will provide a coordinated approach to improving active transportation by reducing barriers for people walking and bicycling, identifying potential projects, and supporting safe pedestrian and bicycle connections.

The final public input phase includes online and in-person participation and closes October 29,2017.

Online Input – The public is encouraged to provide input online at www.goshasta.org.  The GoShasta website provides:

  • The proposed pedestrian and bicycle networks;
  • Actions for achieving these networks; and
  • An interactive map that allows users to comment on the proposed networks.

Information Stations – Visit with agency staff developing both plans to comment on proposed pedestrian and bicycle networks and supporting policies and programs.  Drop by one of two information stations to discuss biking and walking and provide your comments:

1) Saturday, October 21, 2017 7:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Farmers Market, Redding City Hall, 777 Cypress Avenue. Shasta Living Streets will provide bicycle valet parking and conduct a free helmet giveaway for their “Freedom from Training Wheels” event for kids.

2) Sunday, October 22, 2017 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the Sundial Bridge at Turtle Bay Museum, 1335 Arboretum Drive, Redding.

The GoShasta Regional and City of Redding Active Transportation Plans will enable the region to compete for state and federal funding to build bikeways and walkways.  The plans are funded by a competitive grant awarded to the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency from California’s Active Transportation Program.  For more information and participation online, visit www.goshasta.org.
