Walking, biking ideas welcome at April planning workshop

The City of Concord is preparing its first Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to Transit Plan and wants to hear from the community. A workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Willow Pass Center, 2748 East Olivera Rd.

"Community members are invited to share their thoughts about how to improve walking and bicycling conditions in the City of Concord," said Principal Planner Andy Mogensen. "Everyone is encouraged to attend and join the conversation about walking and bicycling in our community."

Community members are also encouraged to share their thoughts through a special survey created for the project, available online at the project's website,

The April 8 workshop will be an open-house format focused on community needs and the built environment. Staff from the Contra Costa County Health Services' Community Wellness and Prevention Program, Monument Impact, and City staff will be on hand to listen to ideas and share the plan's objectives. Planning staff from the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) will also be on hand to share proposed designs and get feedback on upcoming projects at the Concord Station.

Real-time Spanish interpretation and child care services will be provided. Willow Pass Center is located in Willow Pass Park, at the corner of Salvio Street and East Olivera Road. The park is served by County Connection Route 15 and is about a 25 minute walk from the Concord BART Station.
