Community invited to share input on key transportation strategies for Shasta’s future
SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. — Over the next 20 years, the Shasta region is changing significantly due to its growing population, the COVID-19 pandemic, and major development in Shasta’s urban areas. That is why the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA) is seeking input from the community on how best to strategize and plan for these changes.
From December 11 – December 24, SRTA is hosting a Virtual Community Workshop as part of the 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan. Participants can share their thoughts on five proposed transportation strategies to address future transportation challenges and anticipated needs. Community members can join the workshop by going to www.2040LongRangeTransitPlan.com.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
The 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan will serve as the blueprint for a sustainable, safe, innovative, integrated, and efficient public transit system over the next 20 years. Earlier in August 2020, SRTA kicked off initial public engagement for the Long-Range Transit Plan with an online community questionnaire to better understand how Shasta residents want to travel over the next 20 years. After identifying key emerging trends that may affect mobility within the region, SRTA is now presenting a set of five strategies for the public to review.
“The 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan is flexible and will allow us to implement a range of strategies based on changing conditions in the community as they are experienced.” says Daniel Wayne, Senior Transportation Planner with the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency. “This flexibility of the plan will help SRTA better respond to the needs of Shasta residents, and ensure that our public transportation system is best serving our unique urban and rural communities.”
SRTA is inviting community members to review five key strategies around multi-modal accessibility, fixed-route transit and infrastructure, policy improvements and alternative mobility by going to www.2040LongRangeTransitPlan.com. Participants can share their feedback from December 11 – 24, 2020.
