Active Transportation Plan in Priority Neighborhoods
To advance public health in San Joaquin County, SJCOG, in partnership with the San Joaquin County Public Health Services, will conduct an Active Transportation Improvement Plan in communities identified in the 2019 Community Health Needs Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). This study will examine existing bike and walk infrastructure across the region to determine barriers communities with higher rates of health disparities may face in accessing opportunities to improve physical health. SJCOG and its partner seek to determine program and project needs for improving public health, reducing congestion, and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. The Active Transportation Plan in Priority Neighborhoods Study aligns with state efforts to improve mobility and safety of active transportation users.
