The City of Solana Beach received a SANDAG grant to prepare its first Comprehensive Active Transportation Strategy (CATS). The CATS will identify opportunities to improve both bicycle and pedestrian networks by increasing connectivity and enhancing the safety and comfort of bicyclists and pedestrians. Everyone travels, and the intent of the CATS is to make active transportation an easier and more attractive mode of travel. Active transportation is any self-propelled, human-powered mode of travel, such as walking or cycling.
Active transportation has multiple public health, environmental, and economic benefits. Cycling and walking can lead to increased physical activity, which helps reduce health risks such as obesity, diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, cancer, stress, and depression. Additionally, more cycling and walking helps reduce vehicle miles traveled, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality.
Community involvement is an important component of the CATS process. Opportunities for public participation including upcoming community workshops, surveys, and comment cards will be provided and regularly updated on the website.
