In 2017, the City of Stockton received grant funding to develop a Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan. Stockton is a regional employment hub, particularly downtown, but only a small percentage of Stockton residents choose to walk or bike as part of their commute.
As downtown continues to grow, it is important to provide residents and community members with transportation options other than driving.
The Active Transportation Plan will identify and recommend future bicycle and pedestrian facility projects in the City of Stockton’s Greater Downtown.
The Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan builds on the bicycle network in the 2017 Bicycle Master Plan. These projects will contribute to a truly multimodal downtown by:

The Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan includes an extensive 12-month public outreach program, to include key stakeholder groups and the community at milestones throughout. Opportunities for community involvement in the next year include:

This stakeholder and community input will be considered, alongside the project development team’s technical analysis and industry best practices, to develop a priority list of active transportation projects in the Active Transportation Plan.
Below is an overview of the project’s timeline.
Please note: Timeframe for each outreach opportunity is subject to change; dates are tentative.
