If you haven't yet take the Caltrans survey, you've only got a few more days. The survey closes on March 31st and then the Plan will be written. It can be better with your input!
Here's some background. In 2017, Caltrans (our State Department of Transportation) released a document called Towards an Active California. Part of the implementation of that Plan entails the creation of district-level plans (Orange County is its own district - we're no. 12). The intent of these plans is stated on their Active Transportation Plans website:
The Caltrans Active Transportation Plans will identify active transportation improvements on, across or parallel to the State Highway System. District level plans will emphasize social equity – strengthening and reconnecting local networks and improving safety and access for people who walk, bicycle, and use transit.
Now is our chance to tell them what we think about all the streets and intersections within the blue buffers. This includes streets parallel to, over, and under freeways, as well as the entire stretches of Newport Blvd, PCH, and Beach Blvd. You can add as many concerns as you want. When you're ready, here is the link!
Let's make sure that they get a lot of responses from Costa Mesa!
