Demand more bikeways at Walnut Creek Climate Action Plan public workshop

11:07 PM PDT on August 28, 2011

From EBBC:

There is no one answer to combat the toll driving on local roads takes on the air. Instead, it will be several measures --such as creating infrastructure for bicyclists and promoting public transit

Matt Huffaker, public services business manager for Walnut Creek

The Walnut Creek City Council tabled the Pleasant Hill BART Shortcut Path back in 2009, due to maintenance costs. Now they have the chance to reconsider that idea and help develop a highly functional bikeway from Concord to BART, which will take many cars off of the highways and help reduce GHG's in the City of Walnut Creek.

Workshop participants will learn about the components of the CAP and will have an opportunity to provide the City with feedback on the proposed strategies for addressing climate change, air quality, energy efficiency, community health and other components of sustainability.

The CAP, once completed, will serve as a blueprint for the City’s future sustainability efforts and contain policies that are designed to help the City meet state legal requirements for GHG reductions. The goals and measures outlined in the Climate Action Plan are intended to support a healthy and sustainable future for Walnut Creek.

The Draft CAP is available on the City’s website at
