Project

Plan Folsom Boulevard

Client

Sacramento Area Council of Governments, CA

Summary

The Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) in conjunction with Sacramento County and the City of Rancho Cordova undertook a project along historic Folsom Blvd to engage citizens in a discussion about developing transit. The plan focussed on improving access for pedestrians and bicyclists by identifying where bike lanes and sidewalks are inadequate or non-existent, and also identified utility infrastructure needs (sewer, water, drainage) that will be necessary to accommodate transit-oriented development. The project engaged the community in discussing barriers to walking and using transit and also informed residents of the related health benefits walking and transit-oriented development can provide.

To complement the face-to-face workshops, SACOG added MetroQuest as a digital component to reach a broader cross section of the community and enable residents that could attend in person an opportunity to have their voices heard. MetroQuest worked with staff at SACOG to create a design for a station-specific engagement that could be repurposed quickly and cost effectively for subsequent stations.
