Climate Action & Pedestrian Master Plans
|| The City of South San Francisco with the assistance of the consulting firms of PMC and Fehr & Peers is preparing a community-wide comprehensive Climate Action Plan (CAP) and a community-wide Pedestrian Master Plan (PMP).
The Climate Action Plan will provide goals, policies, and programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, climate change adaptation and support the goals of Assembly Bill (AB) 32 and Senate Bill (SB) 375.
The Pedestrian Master Plan will provide a community-wide plan providing for a network of sidewalks and paths to facilitate increased walking to local destinations. The plan will include an inventory and assessment of the current pedestrian facilities, a gap analysis, identify and prioritize needed improvements and provide goals policies and and measurable
implementation measures. A key focus area will be the Downtown Area and residential neighborhoods.
In preparation of the CAP, the City has completed a Government Operations Emissions Inventory, a community-wide Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory, and has recently adopted a Bicycle Master Plan. The project will build on both recent and current planning efforts including the Community Based Transportation Plan, the Downtown Station Area Plan and the El Camino Real Specific Plans.
The California Strategic Growth Council (SGC) awarded South San Francisco a Planning Grant providing the bulk of the funding for the preparation of the CAP and the PMP.
Community participation is a key element and will include three community workshops and walk audits.
The first workshop is scheduled for Saturday March 10, 2012 between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM, and will be conducted at the Municipal Services Building (MSB) located at 33 Arroyo Drive. The focus of the first workshop is to introduce the project and to provide an early opportunity for residents to ask questions and offer comments. The workshop will be conducted in an open-house format so residents can stay for as little or as long as they want. For further information regarding this workshop see the workshop flyer posted on this website.
