Last summer Shasta Living Streets partnered with California Walks & UC Berkeley SafeTREC to conduct a Community Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety Training program – reviewing data and community thoughts about Pine Street, California Street, and South Market Street (273).
Informing Planning & Infrastructure Improvements
The intention for this effort was to gather data and community feedback to inform planning and infrastructure improvements to serve people and businesses in the area.
Planning team members included staff from: Caltrans District 2 Complete Streets and Livable Communities, City of Redding Planning, Shasta Co Health & Human Services Agency.
Why This Workshop
Brings outside expertise to Redding to review current conditions and speak with agency staff and local business owners about their ideas and concerns specifically regarding the experience of people walking and biking to shop, work, live and play. Interdisciplinary teams will explore solutions for challenge areas.
Shares best practice and practical solutions to improve the experience of visitors, shoppers, employers, employees – people who visit, work, play, live, and travel using State Route 273 in Downtown and Central Redding.
Engages public input and collective decision-making on ways to improve our city. People are better able to provide input with an understanding of how alternatives serve their needs.
Provides written recommendations by state experts on public comments and features that can improve the walking and biking experience and reduce collisions and safety concerns for the people businesses want to attract. These can be used as one more form of input to current design and planning processes.
At the Workshop
UC Berkeley SafeTREC presented travel and collision data from along the corridor.
We gathered feedback from residents, business owners, downtown property owners about potential infrastructure improvements invited to attend a facilitated workshop in August to gather thoughts and ideas about challenges along these travel ways, and collect ideas for improvement.
