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!

Transportation Expert Todd Litman – Aug 12, 6pm

Please join ECOS’ Transportation, Air Quality & Climate Change (TAQCC) Committee for its regular monthly meeting, on Thursday, August 12th. Details about joining this meeting using “Zoom” are provided below. Our featured speaker will be Todd Litman, transportation expert and Executive Director of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute.

The City of Sacramento has begun work on its 2040 General Plan (including a Transportation Priorities Plan) which will be the City’s blueprint for how and where Sacramento will grow over the next 20 years. In parallel, the City will also be preparing a Climate Action Plan, a framework to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and establish Sacramento as a climate leader. Todd Litman will advise us how to influence these major planning efforts, to ensure that last year’s recommendations of the Mayors’ Commission on Climate Change (including those adopted by its Mobility Technical Advisory Committee) are fully implemented.

The balance of the meeting will be devoted to updates on other active issues, such as the County Climate Action Plan, Climate Emergency Declarations, the proposed expansion of the CapCity bridge over the American River, and other topics raised by attendees.

When: Thursday, August 12th, 2021 at 6 pm
Where: Videoconference, hosted by Zoom

Sacramento Transportation Priorities Plan

June 2021

Dear City of Sacramento Residents,

As part of its long-term planning, the City of Sac is doing a transportation project to set priorities. It’s really important for people who value clean air and equity, and who are concerned about climate, to weigh in.
