Support Walking, Biking and Rolling in Sacramento

January 14, 2022

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!

The Sacramento City Council is holding a workshop on Tuesday, January 25, 2022, to consider transportation in our city in the context of climate change.

It is past time for Sacramento to commit to and fund a comprehensive active transportation system that prioritizes safety, addresses inequities, reduces air pollution, reduces traffic congestion, decreases the cost of transportation, and creates a vibrant, livable city. Now is the moment to demand for these changes with an influx of Federal funding arriving in Sacramento. WE NEED YOUR VOICE!

Learn About the California Mobility Center Dec 9

Please join ECOS’ Transportation, Air Quality & Climate Change (TAQCC) Committee for its regular monthly meeting, on Thursday, December 9th. Details about joining this meeting using “Zoom” are provided below.

Our featured speaker will be Mark Rawson, Chief Operating Officer of the California Mobility Center, which was officially launched in March 2021. CMC is a nonprofit, public-private business acceleration hub that aspires to become a leading global innovation and commercialization center and to set the pace in electric mobility. Its headquarters will be located at The Hub: Sacramento State Research Park, located southeast of Sac State on the other side of Highway 50, and its Board includes representatives from Sac State, SMUD, Microsoft, UC Davis, and other prominent organizations.

The balance of the meeting will be devoted to updates on other active issues: the proposed citizens intiiatve to put a Sacramento County transportation tax on the November 2022 ballot, Sacramento County and City Climate Action Plans, Sacramento City Transportation Priorities Plan, the proposed expansion of the CapCity bridge over the American River, and other topics you may raise.

Note: This is the final meeting of TAQCC as presently constituted, since it will be folded into a new Climate Change Committee in the restructuring of ECOS committees. The initial meeting of the Climate Change Comittee will be the first Thursday in January, the same time and date previously scheduled for TAQCC.
