About the event

Join   us for our May Lunch Program on the Sacramento Region Trail Network  and the Arcade Cripple Creek Trail. Along with winning the 2023 WTS Sacramento Innovative Transportation Solutions Award earlier this year, this project, Ready! Set! Trails!, defines more than 1,000-mile network of trails that connect Sacramento, Yuba, Sutter, Yolo, Placer, and El   Dorado counties and the many natural resources within our region. The plan   divides trail segments into three categories: “ready” (in planning), “get-set” (in development), and “go” (construction-ready). The project was led from initial concept to final release by a woman, Sacramento Area Council of   Government's (SACOG's) Victoria Cacciatore. Victoria developed the scope, managed the project, wrote the plan, and spearheaded its adoption.

The SACOG Board of Directors approved the prioritization and implementation strategy of the Sacramento Regional Trail Network Action Plan on August 18, 2022. The Sacramento Regional Trail Network will spark a new wave of walking, biking, and rolling to daily destinations throughout the region. Imagine a network of trails that makes it easy for families to ride to their favorite park, provides a safe route for children to get to school, and offers a simple way for residents to explore new corners of their neighborhoods and cities. Summer Lopez will illustrate how the network envisions   reliable routes to the best places around the region for all ages, and abilities.

An example of one of these routes is the Arcade Cripple Creek Trail. The City is constructing a 2.9-mile-long multi-use trail between Sunrise Boulevard and Wachtel Way that will largely follow an existing Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) electric corridor easement. The trail is located in the City and unincorporated Orangevale, and connects several neighborhoods to eight parks, several schools, and the Sunrise Marketplace. Leslie Blomquistwill describe the key features of this project. In addition to a paved multi-use trail, this project also includes new signals, pathway lighting, drainage improvements, and landscaping.
