SMPS-Sacramento September 2017 Lunch Program – Active Transportation is Moving in Sacramento.

A vibrant component in America’s infrastructure, Active Transportation promotes trails, bike lanes and cycle tracks to make human-powered transportation (walking and bicycling) safe and convenient for healthier communities.
In the Sacramento area, SACOG created the Active Transportation Program (ATP) to fund bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects. The ATP combines many federal and state funding streams previously used for bicycle, pedestrian, safety, and other related purposes into one funding stream with broad eligibilities. With the passage of the California Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Program (SB 1) earlier this year, $100 million in additional funding is now available annually for the ATP starting in state fiscal year 2017/2018.

SMPS –Sacramento is excited to address this interesting topic at our September program! Please join us as we hear from representatives from SACOG, the County of Sacramento, and the Cities of Elk Grove and West Sacramento and learn how they are making active transportation move forward!
