Press Release - Elk Grove Trails are the Topic of Revised Plan and January 19 Workshop

Posted: 01/07/2021

Elk Grove, CA -- The City is updating its Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan and is seeking community input. A virtual community meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, January 19 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. to present revisions that focus on key improvements including shared use paths, pedestrian crossings, and Class IV bike lanes.

“An extensive bicycle and pedestrian network including connected trails supports a culture where walking and cycling are a safe and convenient transportation option for people of all ages,” said Mark Mendenhall, Chairman of the Elk Grove Trails Committee. “We encourage community members to provide their feedback to help refine and enhance this important plan.”

The Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan (BPTMP) guides and influences pedestrian, bicycle, and trail policies, programs, and development standards to make biking and walking in Elk Grove safe, comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable for all community members.  The ultimate goal of the BPTMP is to increase the number of people who walk and bicycle for transportation to work, school, and errands, and for recreation. The final plan will identify existing facilities, opportunities, constraints, and destination points for bicycle users, pedestrians, and trail users.
