Your donation for Better bikeways, walkable cities and vibrant public places in Redding & Shasta county

At Shasta Living Streets we imagine Downtown Redding as the center hub of a connected city. It’s a people-friendly, walkable, bikeable district with vibrant public places, and smart-city amenities. 

We Believe when we give a lot more people the resources, skills and confidence they need to get around safely and conveniently walking and biking, people discover the ease and joy of active living. When we add high-quality facilities and experiences, our community becomes healthier, happier, and more prosperous.

This is why with the Shasta Bike Depot we have designed a full-service set of features for active transportation commutes and tourism services, to provide amenities, create community, and empower people. Starting in Downtown, the services and amenities will help build our trail town and create a connected city.

Our Sponsors

Please know, this raffle prize is made possible by generous contribution from Yuba Bicycles, the Redding Parks and Trails Foundation, and last years’ Spicy Curry e-cargo bike winners, Jenn and Ted, who were so happy with the experience of owning an e-cargo bike, they made a generous donation to “pay it forward” to make another bike available to a lucky family in our community.

Clean transportation and active living excellence builds better cities for everyone by bringing lower cost of living, connected communities, healthy lifestyles, and more joy. 

We believe when we build high-quality facilities and give a lot more people the resources, skills, and confidence they need to get around safely and conveniently walking and biking – more people discover the ease and joy of active living, and our community becomes healthier, happier, and more prosperous. 

Today, we are realizing a ten-year vision to provide 21st Century amenities to empower and encourage cycling excellence and trail tourism to raise Redding and Shasta County into the ranks of top places for active, healthy living.   We are working with local and state partners to do this for the additional urgent need to achieve City of Redding, Shasta County, and State of California goals of greenhouse gas reductions in transportation.

Transportation for a Strong Town, Charles Marohn

Shasta Living Streets and the Sacramento Valley Section of the California APA Cascade Division recently hosted Charles Marohn for a presentation about his new book Confessions of a Recovering Engineer, Transportation For a Strong Town.”  Ideas presented give strategies for improvements that make a real difference.  Thank you to everyone who attended.  We will soon have an audio recording and short video to share with you.  

Transportation is getting worse.  And costing more. We must do better.  

Join the Community Book Reading to Learn More  

On November 9th Charles Marohn, President and founder of the Strong Towns movement joined us. Charles led a discussion of successful techniques used to build quality of life in Strong Towns that inspire and encourage the work underway in Shasta County towns today.

NEW BOOK
Confessions of a Recovering Engineer,
Transportation For a Strong Town

★ BOOKS AVAILABLE Charles Marohn’s new book is available for purchase at Shasta Living Streets. Purchase online at the link below, or contact us and stop by for purchase. 530.355.2230

  • Confessions of a Recovering Engineer: Transportation for a Strong Town
  • Strong Towns: A Bottom-Up Revolution to Rebuild American Prosperity

JOIN THE COMMUNITY BOOK READING 
We offer another opportunity to join in the community discussion, whether you attended this event or not, we invite you to read Charles’ new book, “Confessions of a Recovering Engineer” and join us in a community book reading. We will host an online conversation soon.

THE NEW BOOK:
CONFESSIONS OF A RECOVERING ENGINEER 
Charles Marohn, professional engineer and founder of the Strong Towns movement, lifts the curtain on America’s transportation system in his newest book, Confessions of a Recovering Engineer. In this book tour presentation, Marohn demonstrates how the values of engineers and other transportation professionals are applied in the design process, and how those priorities differ from the values of the general public.

By showing how transportation investments are a means to an end and not an end unto themselves, Marohn reveals how the standard approach to issues like fighting congestion, addressing speeding, and designing intersections only makes transportation problems worse, at great cost in terms of both safety and resources.

By contrast, the Strong Towns approach to transportation focuses on bottom-up techniques for spending less and getting higher returns, all while improving quality of life for residents of a community.

This is another in a series of community presentations and discussions for building more livable, equitable, prosperous, healthy, and joyful communities in our region.

THANK YOU TO THE MCCONNELL FOUNDATION We are grateful to the McConnell Foundation for generous support to bring Charles Marohn to our community.

Shasta Bike Depot taking Shape

“The depot will be a visitor’s center for transit. It’s a ‘Start Here’ spot for biking and using trails in and around Redding and the North State,” shared Anne Thomas, who will manage the Shasta Bike Depot.

Located next to Redding’s downtown Transit Center, the depot will include a public bike parking garage, classes, community events, an e-bike charging station, guided e-bike tours, and bikeshare. The vision of the depot is to offer amenities that create “comfort, convenience, and enjoyment, for the increasing number of people who choose to walk and bike to get where they want to go,” Thomas said. “This will be a place to find answers to questions, such as ‘Where do I ride?’ ‘What do I wear?’ ‘Where do I find people to ride with?’ ‘How do I put my bike on the bus?’”

“Programming the bike depot to complement the bike network improvements that the City of Redding, Caltrans and SRTA are undertaking is exciting. Imagine a family hopping on bikes near the Sundial Bridge, and easily getting to a downtown destination. Or a person who lives downtown being able to easily access the world-class Sacramento River Trail by bike,” said Rachel Hatch, Senior Program Officer for Community Vitality. “Downtowns that thrive, are those that are bikeable and walkable.”

Bicycle tourism is an important economic driver for the future of Redding, contributing $83 billion to the US economy annually.  In addition, it’s a vital option for Redding residents to get around town.  “When we give people the resources, skills and confidence they need to get around safely and conveniently by bike, they discover the ease and joy of bicycling. People in Redding and Shasta County aren’t just ready for this – they are excited about it,” Thomas said.

The McConnell Foundation’s Bell Plaza bike depot, café and outdoor courtyard, located on the corner of Shasta and California streets in downtown Redding is visibly taking shape with framing underway.  This project is a nod to a piece of Redding’s history at the former Bell Rooms site, while creating a new community amenity.

The Foundation made a 10-year funding commitment to Community Vitality in 2017. This property was the Foundation’s first downtown acquisition and is its first “ground-up” downtown development. The courtyard will be bicycle and pet-friendly.

McConnell selected Trilogy Architecture as the project designer, with its long-term presence and focus downtown. Modern Building Company is the general contractor. The company has several projects under construction in Redding, and has historic restoration experience in Chico and North Carolina. 

The Foundation is seeking a café operator that will serve fresh local foods, featuring indoor and outdoor seating. “Our café goal is for it to serve as a lively downtown spot; a place to linger and visit over food and beverages, with options for grab & go.  Refuel, explore, repeat,” said Hatch. Key components of community vitality overlap in this project. Active lifestyles, local foods, adaptive reuse, surrounded by small businesses, housing, arts and culture.”

The Shasta Bike Depot and Bell Plaza will open to the public in the spring of 2022.
