Caltrans is hosting a series of meetings around the state to get input on the California State Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan (CSBPP). The plan kicked off last year and is expected to be completed and approved by Caltrans management in early 2017.

The plan's goals are ambitious: by 2020, triple bicycling and double walking.

Unlike most local bike plans, this one will not be a map with lines showing where bicycle facilities go. Instead the CSBPP will be a policy document showing how Caltrans can improve walking and bicycling on facilities it manages. Many of these are freeways, but in many locations these routes also form Main Street commercial stretches. In addition, the plan will evaluate Caltrans processes to ensure projects and programs support walking and biking.

To give input on the plan, there is one more public meeting at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Folsom Community Center at 52 Natoma Street in Folsom. Interested parties can also give input by filling out a survey at the CSBPP website. While you're there, sign up to receive email updates on plan progress.
