As part of developing a Pedestrian Master Plan, the City is actively seeking community input through an online survey to help identify needs and concerns surrounding pedestrian, biking and transit activity in Citrus Heights.

Although previously due by February 13, a statement on the City’s website says responses are now being accepted through March 1 — with answers being used “to plan and guide investment in sidewalks, street crossings, and other pedestrian improvements,” according to an introductory statement on the survey.

The City says community input “will play a key role” in developing its plan to “enhance and encourage” pedestrian-related activity, hoping to gather feedback through the 21-question online survey in addition to hosting a “kick-off” workshop at the Community Center last month.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to answer, asking questions like how often you walk, how safe you feel, how far you travel when walking and your least favorite areas to walk in. Another question asks if items like lack of sidewalks, curb ramps or lighting plays a role in how often one walks in the city, and a final question leaves a space for entering additional comments.

The workshop on January 29 was designed to give attendees a chance to learn more about the Pedestrian Master Plan and ask questions to staff, according to a flier promoting the event. The flier also encouraged teens to attend, saying it’s “about planning for their future and future generations as well as for today.”
