By making it easy and attractive for people to get around without a car, we’re bringing more people Downtown and bringing Downtown to life.
“I grew up
just outside Redding, at 17 my first job was in Downtown Redding” said Anne Thomas, Shasta Living Streets’ Executive Director. “Today we are working with many partners to build on the basic elements that made downtown Redding the regional hub decades ago. The collaborative projects are building housing, retail and office space. We are adding 21st century amenities like Redding Bikeshare and the Shasta Bike Depot, a 5.1 mile connected 2-way separated bikeway that connects people and places in the center of the city, and a new urban park and alley-way with summer shade, a water feature, more trees, and art.”
Starting in Downtown Redding, the services and amenities will help build our trail town and create a connected city.
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, more people are engaged, and 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 clean and active transportation commutes and tourism services, to provide amenities, create community, and empower people. Starting in Downtown Redding, the services and amenities will help build our trail town and create a connected city.
Clean transportation and active living excellence builds better cities for everyone by bringing lower cost of living, connected communities, healthy lifestyles, and more joy.
At Shasta Living Streets we imagine Downtown Redding as the center hub of a connected city and region. It’s a people-friendly, walkable, bikeable district with vibrant public places and smart-city amenities.
We imagine cities and towns with emphasis on being outdoors on interconnected walking paths and bicycle networks with supportive amenities, transit that works, and community socializing fostered by trails and parks, and an ease for getting out and about.
This is a cross between traditional small-town America
and a modern, progressive thinking city.
