Working Towards New Forms of Transportation
The City Council
formed a subcommittee of the Traffic Safety Commission
and the Recreation and Parks Commission
regarding alternative transportation enhancement opportunities. The purpose of the ad hoc subcommittee is to provide recommendations to the Planning Commission
or City Council for additional alternative modes of transportation through the Circulation Element
of the General Plan. The subcommittee also hopes to ensure integration of alternative transportation with the County and neighboring cities.
The goal of the subcommittee is to review alternative transportation within the Circulation Element, promote regional solutions to alternative transportation issues, and support public outreach efforts in alternative transportation awareness.
The first meeting was held on Wednesday, February 17, 2010, at 7:00 pm in the City Council Chambers. The subcommittee reviewed the current draft circulation element took public comment. A second meeting was held on April 14, 2010.
Please check back for more information and the next scheduled subcommittee meeting. The General Plan update and review of the Circulation Element are still ongoing at this time (August 2011). The City is reviewing and participating with the County of Orange and other North Orange County Cities in the Orange County Complete Guide to Complete Streets process which seeks to gain grant funding from the federal government through a pilot project support by the Southern California Association of Governments. As "Complete Streets" and alternative froms of transportation are regional in nature, the City of Placentia will participate and be part of the larger solution to incorporating such forms of transportation enhancement opportunities.
