That fundamental cornerstone, the crux of the City of Redding’s ability to progress, is at the very least, a single full-time staff person with a focus on getting the human-scaled details of roadway construction and maintenance projects right, work with the community, identify priorities, plan for the future and get the cash to do it.
The City of Redding is applying for several million dollars for three (!) Active Transportation Program projects. The grant is VERY competitive, and every letter of support helps! If the City is selected for funding construction would likely be around 2020-2022 timeframe, and will spend the next several years refining the design to get to construction.
There has been some misinformation being circulated about this project; some businesses have even made decisions based on inaccurate information. The information that is being spread that is wrong is that this project will be done in a matter of months or even later this year. This is in fact, is very untrue; this project will not break ground until at least 2019.
