Schedule Overview


In July 2014, the City Council adopted the Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Trails Master Plan.  This document, which replaces the earlier Trails Master Plan (2007) and Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (2004), implements the City’s General Plan goals and policies relative to non-vehicular mobility in the City.

The  Bicycle,  Pedestrian  and  Trails Master  Plan  (BPTMP  or Master  Plan)  is intended to  guide and influence pedestrian,  bicycle,  and  trail policies, programs, and development standards to make biking and walking in the City of Elk Grove  (City) more safe, comfortable, convenient, and enjoyable for all community members.  The ultimate goal of the BPTMP is to increase the number of persons who walk and bicycle for transportation to work, school, and errands, and for recreation.  The City seeks to have exemplary bicycle, pedestrian, and trail facilities that provide connectivity throughout the City and the wider Sacramento region in order to offer recreational opportunities and an alternative method for transportation for City residents.

The BPTMP identifies existing facilities, opportunities, constraints, and destination points for bicycle users, pedestrians, and trail users in the City. The City’s General Plan Circulation and Open Space Element goals and policies serve as the basis for developing BPTMP goals and supporting policies for planning and implementation of bikeway, pedestrian, and off-street, multi-use trail facilities within the public right-of-way. The BPTMP includes an overview of relationships to other plans; goals and policies; an existing conditions summary; recommended and proposed bikeway, trails, and pedestrian networks; existing programs; standards and guidelines; implementation criteria and priorities; and maps showing existing and recommended locations of bicycle and pedestrian paths and trails.
