The Santa Cruz County Active Transportation Plan is a partnership between the County of Santa Cruz Public Works Department, County Public Health, Ecology Action, and Bike Santa Cruz County. The Active Transportation Plan will update the 2011 Bicycle Plan and provide a roadmap for future improvements for walking and bicycling in unincorporated Santa Cruz County. 

Public input is the foundation of the planning process and will be gathered through community outreach events, public meetings, and online comments. Following the public input phase in fall 2020, the planning team will develop a list of infrastructure and program recommendations to improve safety and encourage walking and bicycling. The County of Santa Cruz has also recently developed a Safe Routes to Schools Plan for 13 County schools, and projects from the Safe Routes to Schools Plan will be included in the Active Transportation Plan.

GET INVOLVED

Join us to test out projects from the Active Transportation Plan and tell us what you think! The goal of these temporary installations is to get feedback from the community on whether similar projects should be installed permanently and to help the County of Santa Cruz secure funding for project construction.   

HOW ELSE TO GET INVOLVED
