Circulation Master Plan for Bicyclists and Pedestrians
The City of Rancho Cucamonga is preparing a Circulation Master Plan for Bicyclists and Pedestrians. The plan is intended to complement local and regional planning efforts related to active transportation opportunities and guide strategic investments in infrastructure, programming, and education to promote community health and access to multi-modal transportation options, particularly in underserved areas of the City. Since the City’s incorporation in 1977, the population has grown 350 percent and features widespread residential, commercial, and industrial development. As a result of unprecedented population growth over the past 30 years, critical infrastructure in older neighborhoods has not kept pace. There is limited access to safe open space for exercise, types of available and reliable public transportation to get to work and community amenities, and many streets lack curbs, sidewalks and bike lanes, making it unsafe for children to walk or bike to school. To assist with the implementation of the healthy community principles in the General Plan, the City applied for and received a grant from the California Endowment to improve health through active transportation planning. A portion of this grant is being used to fund the development of the Circulation Master Plan for Bicyclists and Pedestrians.
Gathering community input is vital to this process as we move forward. Our surveys will help the City understand the needs and desires of residents and community stakeholders. It will help us identify safer, more convenient routes to jobs, retail, schools, recreation areas, parks, tourist attractions, and other important destinations. Staff will physically be out gathering input during the month of March, and the survey is available online at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RCbikeped
