Resources & Updates for getting around Downtown

We are in the midst of unprecedented opportunity in Redding and Shasta County supported by local residents and funding from the State of California. 

In the past three years our agencies and local community organizations have come together like never before to revitalize Downtown Redding and this region. The scope of new city and regional plans and projects is transformational, including two of the state’s largest Sustainable Community grants with coordinated transportation improvements and mixed-use housing and retail development.  Updates: Downtown Redevelopment Projects

[It’s about] Creating streets that work better for people …. Cities that are making these kind of investments and changes, are the cities that are growing and thriving in this century.  – Janette Sadik-Khan

Our region is poised to be a model for smart growth and transit and trail-oriented development for non-coastal cities in California, if we continue to move forward and shape our future to benefit families and businesses with walkable neighborhoods connected by low-stress bikeways and transit.

Many years of planning and public input has led to the projects underway now – to build a vibrant, walkable, bikeable Downtown Redding and connected city.  Plans include:

2016 Downtown Transportation Plan

2018 City of Redding Downtown Specific Plan Update

2018 City of Redding Active Transportation Plan

Downtown Redevelopment Project Updates
