Laguna Creek Inter-Regional Trail Master Plan

Project Purpose and Overview

The City of Elk Grove's Laguna Creek Inter-Regional Trail (LCIRT) Master Plan will provide a conceptual multi-modal planning foundation for the City of Elk Grove and adjacent communities. This grant funded project will aid the City in coordinating projects within Elk Grove, the City of Sacramento and Sacramento County and supports Elk Grove's goals to improve connectivity throughout the city's network of trails. With improved connectivity, residents will have bicycle and pedestrian access to schools, public transit, retail and entertainment, employment centers, medical services, and recreational amenities.

Finally, the LCIRT Master Plan will complement work started in 2020 on the City's Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trails Master Plan by providing greater detail, a holistic approach, and broader geographic scope related specifically to the LCIRT.

The LCIRT Master Plan will contain conceptual design only. It is the City's intent that once this plan is complete, it will lead to implementation and development. The City will be the Lead Agency, in cooperation with the City of Sacramento, County of Sacramento, Sacramento Regional Transit District, the San Joaquin Joint Powers Authority (SJJPA), and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

Public Outreach

One of the key methods of ensuring the LCIRT Master Plan is successful is to identify and engage Key Stakeholders who will be instrumental in the development of the plan. Stakeholder meetings will be utilized to present current conditions, identify deficiencies, and develop solutions that will improve connectivity, public health, and provide innovation. These meetings will also allow Key Stakeholders and the community to stay informed on the overall project including trail design/connections features. Stakeholder involvement will begin at the Project Kickoff and will continue throughout development through to the final plan.

A schedule for the LCIRT Master Plan development meetings will be created so participants are well aware of times and locations. This project is anticipated to begin in 2021. Please check back for updates on opportunities to review project features and provide feedback to City Staff.
