As part of the regional transportation planning process, the Nevada County Transportation Commission (NCTC), in coordination with the County of Nevada, City of Grass Valley, City of Nevada City, and Town of Truckee, contracted with the consulting firm Fehr & Peers to prepare an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) covering nevada County. The Plan combines previous bicycle and pedestrian planning efforts, evaluates needs, identifies projects and recommends prioritization. Completion of the study will provide all necessary information and analysis required by the California Transportation Commission's state funding guidelines and assist local agency efforts to secure funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects.
Status: Fehr & Peers has prepared the Draft Nevada County Active Transportation Plan, which incorporates previous bicycle and pedestrian planning efforts and the input received through the public participation process. The Draft Nevada County ATP is available for review on the NCTC website at http://www.nctc.ca.gov/Projects/Active-Transportation-Plan/index.html and the public comment period runs through April 15, 2019. Any comments received will be considered for incorporation into the final report that will be presented to NCTC for adoption at thier May 15, 2019 meeting. Previous public participation efforts included outreach at local farmers markets and street fairs, an online crowd source interactive mapping and comment tool, and public workshops held at the Grass Valley City Hall and Truckee Hall.
