Streetsblog California: It’s Our First Anniversary!

As of yesterday, Streetsblog California has been publishing for an entire year already.

During that time, we provided regular updates on the goings on in Sacramento related to transportation, while covering good bills and bad, oversight hearings, and budget negotiations. We explained wonky policy debates on parking, CEQA, and transportation funding, and kept an eye on Caltrans' slow evolution from “highway department” to “mobility enabler.”

We also launched a statewide version of California Sustainable Streets Initiative executive director—and Streetsblog LA founding editor—Damien Newton's podcast, #Damien Talks, to bring you conversations with people in the know about statewide policy debates.

In addition to all that, we brought you local reporting on the Central Valley and other places that don't get coverage in our other city-based Streetsblog sites—like Modesto's first separated bike lanes, and what a city like Turlock can do with funding from the Active Transportation Program.

We should have a party to celebrate! But it's difficult to figure out where to plan a party for readers that span the state. Maybe we could meet in the middle?

For now, we'll raise a virtual toast to our first year of successful coverage of statewide sustainable transportation. We'll also, of course, ask for your support to continue covering these issues of vital importance for the whole state.
