The City of Riverbank, California, is soliciting proposals for consulting services to prepare a Bicycle and Pedestrian Active Transportation Plan to improve safety, access, and mobility for non-motorized transportation for people of all ages and abilities throughout the city.
This master plan document shall focus on non-motorized forms of travel, promote the use of pedestrian and bicycle facilities, identify challenges to the current non-motorized network, propose solutions for improvement, identify potential funding sources, and provide substantial conformance with the Stanislaus Council of Government’s (StanCOG) Non-Motorized Plan and the City’s General Plan. The City currently does not have an adopted ATP, Bicycle Master Plan, or Pedestrian Master Plan.
A majority of the City’s residents have traditionally used personal vehicles as their primary form of transportation. In recent years there has been a growing interest from various stakeholders in alternative forms of transportation. The City has undertaken significant capital improvement projects with dedicated pedestrian and bicycle facilities. In addition, the City’s located in a non-attainment area and the poor air quality is made worse through increased vehicle emissions, which results in negative environmental and health consequences. The City has been taking steps to address deficiencies within these non-motorized networks, but efforts have typically been segmented and solutions have been location-based without significant consideration of the network as a whole.
Connectivity of bicycle and pedestrian facilities remains a significant challenge. It is the City’s goal that this project would actively solicit and encourage involvement of stakeholders in the development of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Active Transportation Plan, as well as ensure that the final document serves as a pragmatic tool for improvements, which accurately reflects the needs of the community.
