Greater Downtown Project Background
Downtown Photo
 
In 2017, the City of Stockton received grant funding to develop a Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan. Stockton is a regional employment hub, particularly downtown, but only a small percentage of Stockton residents choose to walk or bike as part of their commute.

The Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan was successful in competing for grant funding. The funds are being used to implement bicycle and pedestrian facilities in the Downtown area.  Two projects will involve constructing bicycle and pedestrian facilities on Lincoln, Rose, Aurora, Park, Oak and Fremont streets. This is an ATP grant awarded by the San Joaquin Council of Governments.  


Project Description
Greater Downtown Stockton Active Transporation Plan Study Area

The Greater Downtown Active Transportation Plan builds on the bicycle network in the 2017 Bicycle Master Plan. Once complete, the City will be well-positioned to seek funds to implement recommended bicycle and pedestrian projects to:

  • Enhance safety for pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders with improved access to transit, schools, work, and regional trails
  • Create connections to and from other areas in the City
  • Support the revitalization of Stockton’s core
Downtown ATP

Community Involvement

The Active Transportation Plan included an extensive 12-month public outreach program with key stakeholder groups and the community. Opportunities for community involvement have included:

  • interviews with underrepresented groups,
  • group meetings with stakeholder representatives,
  • two pop-up workshops and a virtual workshop, and
  • a community open house.

Virtual Community Workshop Feedback

Pop-up workshops also gathered experiences on walking and biking in downtown Stockton and discussed improvements to bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

Stakeholder Representative Group MeetingsA Complete Street Photo 

The City hosted several stakeholder focus group meetings with representatives from business groups and community organizations to introduce the Plan along with:

  • its goals and objectives,
  • stakeholder representative group roles and responsibilities,
  • discussions on active transportation importance to downtown Stockton, 
  • overview of best practices in active transportation planning, and
  • initial analysis of active transportation in Stockton’s downtown grid. 

Small Group InterviewsActive Transportation Plan Diagram 

The project team held a series of three small group discussions with representatives from seven community-based organizations. These interviews helped to:

  • introduce the plan;
  • explore the connection between social equity and active transportation; and
  • discuss community outreach e.g., how the community can be involved and how to develop partnerships with community-based organizations throughout this process.
  • Summary of Small Group Interviews

This stakeholder and community input was valuable in developing a priority list of active transportation projects in the Active Transportation Plan. Thank you to all who participated.
