Menifee Active Transportation Plan

Project Overview


  • Cities are making improvements to support cycling and walking in order to create healthier communities. Numerous environmental, health, and economic benefits are attributable to bicycling and walking, especially as substitutes for travel by motor vehicle. Allowing residents to walk and bike enables them to be more physically active in their daily routines and having cleaner air.

What is an ATP ?


The City of Menifee is adapted an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) to meet the City’s goals and vision for providing a transportation system that supports walking, cycling, public transit and automobiles. The ATP was developed through a robust public engagement process that included a series of workshops, outreach “pop-up” events and online engagement that will provided multiple opportunities for residents to participate and provide input into the ATP.

The project team assessed community needs, evaluated current street and sidewalk inventory, identifies and prioritized active transportation recommendations, and focused on providing improved transportation choices in disadvantaged neighborhoods and near local schools within the City. The result is an action plan for design changes to City streets and programs that support active transportation, and identify projects that can be undertaken at low cost and in the short-term.

Let's Build Safer Streets Together!

Learn about the Go Human Campaign

 Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)'s Go Human campaign encourages people to walk and bike by hosting open streets events and safety demonstration projects. This demonstration will showcase re-designed street elements with safety in mind, showcasing improvements like enhanced crosswalks or parklets. Come and experience for yourself what potential or planned infrastructure changes can look and feel like

audit

Community Members participated in a Walk Audit to tell us about their experiences and observations around the city while showing us improvements to be made!


What is a Walk Audit?

In a walk audit, community members go for a walk together with a facilitator on a planned route, noting what makes their streets feel comfortable for walking and identifying how to make it better for people of all ages and abilities. Using a checklist to assess street infrastructure and conditions, the facilitator will document barriers, positive features, activities, and perceptions of the walking.

Have you realized these changes on our streets?

Do you think they are encouraging you to bike and walk more?


 In 2014, Caltrans officially endorsed the NACTO Urban Street Design Guide and Urban Bikeway Design Guide as valuable toolkits for designing and constructing safe, attractive local streets.

Bicycling and Walking Benefits

In the past decade, more children are walking to and from school, showing an increase of more than 3% nationwide. Empty nesters, particularly as the number of baby boomers reaching retirement age accelerates, are also showing a strong preference for communities that support walking. 51% of senior residents age 65 and older agreed that it was extremely or very important to be able to walk easily in their community.
