Report: Downtown Redding Streets: Safety & Community Input

Informing Planning for Multi-Modal Infrastructure

Last summer Shasta Living Streets partnered with California Walks & UC Berkeley SafeTREC to conduct activities for a Community Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety Training Program – reviewing data and community thoughts about Pine Street, California Street, and South Market Street – Caltrans HWY 273.

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.

What is a Walkable, Bikeable City
and how do we get one?

Considering:  Pine Street, S Market to Buenaventura, Buenaventura Intersection

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 explored 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.
