Bike, Pedestrian, Safe Routes to School and Smart Growth Programs

Image of Man on Bike riding down a country roadThe Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School Master Plan is a regional plan for San Joaquin County that serves as a guide to planning, developing, and managing a regional bicycle and pedestrian network. The plan aims to increase commuter walking and bicycling, and support active and safe transportation to and from school.

During the first 20-year Measure K program, approximately $7.6 million in Measure K funds were awarded to bicycle projects throughout San Joaquin County. These projects included improving existing bicycle facilities and/or planning, developing, and construction of new facilities. In November 2006, San Joaquin County voters approved the renewal of Measure K for an additional 30 years. The renewal also expanded the existing Bicycle Funding Program to include pedestrian and safe routes to school projects.

During the life of the Measure K program, $65 million in funding will be available to local jurisdictions in San Joaquin County for Smart Growth Incentives. These funds will be available for infrastructure enhancements, such as street calming, walk-able community projects, transit amenities, and alternative modes of transportation that will assist local agencies in better integrating transportation and land use. These funds will be available to support infill development, neighborhood revitalization and downtown improvements.

The policies and procedures that guide the use of Measure K Renewal Smart Growth Incentive Program funds were developed as part of the original Measure K Renewal Strategic Plan that was approved by the SJCOG Board in January 2008. These policies and procedures were crafted by a special committee called the Smart Growth Subgroup which represented local agency Community Development Departments, various community interest groups, and members of the private sector.
