YoloTD Launches New Planning Effort – Seeks Community Input

12:05 PM

Community input is requested for the Yolo Active Transportation Corridors Plan

Woodland, Calif. (November 17, 2023): The Yolo Transportation District (YoloTD) is pleased to announce the launch of the Yolo Active Transportation Corridors (YATC) project and requests feedback from the community on this important planning effort. Active transportation includes all forms of people-powered transportation, including walking, biking, riding a scooter, and traveling by wheelchair.

The YATC plan is a first-of-its-kind planning effort for Yolo County and will serve as the guiding document for installing new walking and biking paths, trails, and other routes throughout Yolo County.

Outside of the incorporated cities, facilities to support travel on foot or by bike are often lacking or disconnected, and routes between communities are limited and require users to share the roadway with fast-moving vehicles. Through this Plan, YoloTD aims to identify and prioritize active transportation investments that will improve safety and connectivity between key destinations, reduce barriers to mobility for low-income and minority residents, and improve travel conditions for people of all ages and abilities.

As a community-driven document, everyone who travels in Yolo County is encouraged to participate in the development of the Plan either at in-person events or via the project website. A series of upcoming events are planned in partnership with the Yolo County Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, and additional targeted events in unincorporated communities will be hosted in early 2024. Additional information about the Plan, including an interactive comment map, is available in English and Spanish at the link below.
