The City of Chula Vista is developing an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) to help guide future pedestrian and bicycle improvements. The ATP will build off of the City’s recent efforts, such as the Pedestrian Connectivity Plan and the Bikeway Master Plan, and propose approaches to accommodate emerging technologies such as scooters and electric bike share.
In 2017, the City was successful in receiving Active Transportation Grant Program funding from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) for the development of the ATP. City staff with the support and guidance of their consultant team are utilizing a detailed approach and methodology to conduct an integrated technical planning and public participation process. Chen Ryan Associates (CRA) is the lead technical consultant to the City in developing the ATP, with public participation support provided by MIG, Inc.
Public participation will be an important part of the process for development of the ATP, with activities closely informed by the technical planning process. The results of these activities will provide meaningful input from the breadth and diversity of City residents, employers, and related stakeholders. The ATP development is currently underway with completion anticipated at the end of 2019.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
The ATP team recently completed the Existing Conditions stage and recommendations were developed based on the input received from the public and various stakeholders. At this time, the ATP team will be presenting these recommendations to the public for review and comments.
Please visit us at Chula Vista Harborfest on Aug 17th or at the Otay Ranch Farmers Market on August 20th, where we will have a booth dedicated to present the proposed ATP recommendations. Details of each event can be found here: English Spanish
