Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan

This plan is in the process of being updated.

The Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan is currently in the process of being updated and we need your help!  The Plan will develop a network of streets, trails, and paths where bicycling and walking is safer, comfortable, and convenient for people of all ages and abilities.  Please visit the Social Pinpoint website for this project, here, and open our map tool to tell us:

Where is it challenging to walk or bike today?
Where are there sidewalk gaps?
Where are there gaps in the bike network?
Where can crossings be improved?

If you would like to provide location-specific feedback to the City related to bicycle, pedestrian and trail needs in relation to this project, you are also welcome to email cwhitlock@elkgrovecity.org.

Schedule Overview


BPTMP Cover

In July 2014, the City Council adopted the Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan.  This document, which replaces the earlier Trails Master Plan (2007) and Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (2004), implements the City’s General Plan goals and policies relative to non-vehicular mobility in the City.

The  Bicycle,  Pedestrian  and  Trails Master  Plan  (BPTMP  or Master  Plan)  is intended to  guide and influence pedestrian,  bicycle,  and  trail policies, programs, and development standards to make biking and walking in the City of Elk Grove  (City) more safe, comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable for all community members.  The ultimate goal of the BPTMP is to increase the number of persons who walk and bicycle for transportation to work, school, and errands, and for recreation.  The City seeks to have exemplary bicycle, pedestrian, and trail facilities that provide connectivity throughout the City and the wider Sacramento region in order to offer recreational opportunities and an alternative method for transportation for City residents.

The BPTMP identifies existing facilities, opportunities, constraints, and destination points for bicycle users, pedestrians, and trail users in the City. The City’s General Plan Circulation and Open Space Element goals and policies serve as the basis for developing BPTMP goals and supporting policies for planning and implementation of bikeway, pedestrian, and off-street, multi-use trail facilities within the public right-of-way. The BPTMP includes an overview of relationships to other plans; goals and policies; an existing conditions summary; recommended and proposed bikeway, trails, and pedestrian networks; existing programs; standards and guidelines; implementation criteria and priorities; and maps showing existing and recommended locations of bicycle and pedestrian paths and trails.
