Sacramento County has drafted its very first Active Transportation Plan! The Plan will focus on walking, biking, and rolling (wheeled mobility devices used by people with disabilities, strollers, scooters, skateboards, shopping carts, etc.). Input from community members (like you!) helped us develop this Plan. Thank you for sharing your experiences, challenges, and vision of walking and biking with us. We are nearing the finish line! The draft plan has a list of project recommendations that will help the County:
- Solve infrastructure problems for people who walk, bike, and roll
- Create new routes for people to walk, bike, and roll
- Make walking and biking easier, safer, and more comfortable for people of all ages and abilities

The Public Draft Plan is ready! Please review the Draft Plan and provide your comments and feedback using the interactive PDF tool below no later than November 14, 2021. If you are unable to use the interactive PDF tool you can download the PDF for offline reading and provide comment using the “Contact Us” box at the bottom of this page, email ActiveTransportationPlan@saccounty.net, or call (916) 875-4769.
Additionally, the appendices are available for view here and you may provide comment using the “Contact Us” box at the bottom of this page. The appendices include more detailed maps and tables on the proposed infrastructure recommendations across the County.
We need your input! Throughout the planning process, the County will organize a number of different events to listen to your feedback and to present ideas, data, and material to review and discuss. Pending shelter-in-place orders, we may also host pop-up outreach, where we will set up a table at an existing event to talk to the community. Details of upcoming events will be posted on the website and emailed to you if you sign up for our announcement list. Your participation helps shape how we plan for the future of bicycling and walking in Sacramento County.
