Pre-workshop huddle
30 minutes before meeting
at Peoples Coffee

The Santa Cruz County just announced a third community workshop for the Transit Corridors Plan for Sustainable Communities. The County collected feedback from two previous workshops and is actively soliciting more input. People Power members are encouraged to participate in the workshop and advocate for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and safety improvements. The workshop will be held at Live Oak Elementary School, 1916 Capitola Road, Santa Cruz. Spanish translation services will be available. Habrá servicios de tradución.

The Transit Corridors Plan is a county-wide planning effort that will focus on urban areas in Live Oak, Soquel, and Aptos, and will help shape growth and development priorities throughout Santa Cruz County. Let's encourage the County to commit to best practices for bike, transit, and pedestrian infrastructure. With your input, the Plan can integrate the County's land use and transportation policies in a way that protects environmental resources, supports economic growth, and increases access to opportunity for all County residents.

There is also an option to submit comments online, via Open Town Hall. Follow the link on the front page, sign up, and submit your take on sustainability in the County and the plan area.
