  • Goal 38: Establish a system of creek-side trails, passive open space, and parks for public use.
  • Goal 39: Create open spaces in future urban development with natural features for public use and enjoyment.
  • Goal 59: Ensure that ample and appropriate parks and recreation facilities and programs are available to all residents.

Project Goals & Objectives

  • Provide improved connections to key destinations such as schools, shopping areas, neighborhoods, parks and other trail networks for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Improve access to the creek corridors for residents of all abilities
  • Increase the number of recreational facilities to more neighborhoods
  • Improve transportation choices in the City.

Objectives for these goals involve preparing the Creek Corridor Trail Project, involving the community in all aspects of the project, and revising policy documents to incorporate new trails, as follows:

  • Evaluate the feasibility of optimizing the existing creek and utility corridors by creating a multi-use trail network
  • Engage the community to fit the project within the context of the community
  • Incorporate feasible trail segments into future policy documents, including the General Plan, the Pedestrian Master Plan, the Bikeway Master Plan, the Safe Routes to School Master Plan and the ADA Master Plan.
