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.

BoomTown BMX's start-house was burned to the ground sometime before 4am early sunday morning. Apparently BoomTown has had problems with vandals in the past.
Our track has been the repeated target of vandals but we will not let them win! We are going to continue to provide our kids with a safe and fun environment to ride in despite setbacks. Please share with your friends and family. We need the community's help to put a stop to this! If you have any information please contact the sheriff's department. -Dustie Kenyon (BoomTown BMX)
Let's help out BoomTown get some security cameras and help rebuild the start-house out of something that can't be destroyed, and or maybe we need a larger solution for the problem that can also raise the profile of BMX in our community?
Petition - Delay Removing a Lane on California St to Research a Protected Urban Trail from the River Trail to Downtown
We can have 3 motorist lanes and a bike lane. If we take a lane prematurely from motorists we risk a community backlash for future cycling infrastructure improvements and risk retaliation on the road towards cyclists. An Urban Trail from the River Trail to downtown could truly help revitalize downtown with the user base already in place, while the section being discussed on Califorina Street does not currently have safe network acess for cyclist to warrant lane removal. Also bike lane big enough for people to drive in will only encourage people to do so. Let's not make waves over a facility that does not serve the majority of people on bikes in this community.
