In March 2018, the City was awarded grant funding from Caltrans to prepare the Pittsburg Active Transportation and Safe Routes Plan, also known as 'Pittsburg Moves'. The purpose of the Plan is to increase walking and biking in the community by identifying and prioritizing improvements that help increase safety, accessibility, and connectivity between housing, schools, transit, parks, community centers, and commercial areas.
The City has held several community engagement activities including a Walking Workshop in Old Town, Community Workshops at City Hall, and pop-up events during National Night Out, Movies in the Park, and the Pittsburg Farmer's Market. Based on the input gathered from these and other activities, Fehr and Peers (the City's consultant) has prepared their initial recommendations for sidewalk, crosswalk, and bicycle improvements. The City is soliciting comments on these improvements through an interactive webmap on the project webpage: http://www.pittsburg-moves.com.
Comments are being accepted through the end of February 2019. Once the City has finished receiving comments, the consultant will be preparing a draft of the Active Transportation and Safe Routes Plan. The public will be able to review and comment on the Plan before it is adopted by the City Council.
