Next year has a lot of great projects are starting that have potential to improve our region! The new Del Rio Trail that will connect Land Park south to Freeport will move dirt, Broadway will finally get a road diet that will make it much safer for bikes and ped crossings, SACOG funded a new trail in Citrus Heights along with Del Rio. Getting Around Sacramento thinks we did well with Active Transportation funding this year with 7 transformative projects supported from the state. Plus there is good news on addressing food deserts with grant awards to 17 groups including Alchemist CDC to expand access at farmers markets.
So a lot to track and support next year! What is missing for our region is large scale urban greening and habitat protection projects getting funded – we have to keep working on those so we get our fair share of everything the state is putting out there!
