Safe Routes to School Master Plan

During the development of the City of Rancho Cordova’s Pedestrian Master Plan (adopted 2011) and the Bicycle Master Plan (adopted 2016), City staff worked with school administrators to identify concerns and opportunities to access Rancho Cordova’s school sites. In general, school administrators were looking for more visible pedestrian crossings of streets adjacent to schools, along with signing that alerts drivers to student activity.  The information identified led to the need for a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Master Plan, focused specifically on access to and from schools in Rancho Cordova.

The development of the SRTS Master Plan will be performed through interaction with appropriate stakeholders from the City, school districts, students, parents, and community members to identify infrastructure and program improvements needed to provide a safe and connected network that will promote walking and bicycling to schools. The project will also include the initial planning work necessary to enable the City to be competitive in seeking Active Transportation Program funding to finance needed infrastructure improvements.

 ADA Transition Plan

The City of Rancho Cordova adopted a ADA Transition Plan on May 2, 2005. The main purpose of this plan is to develop policies and practices for implementing physical pedestrian improvements within the public right-of-way of the City of Rancho Cordova. The goal is to optimize the pedestrian experience, to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities for all pedestrians, and to assure compliance with all federal, state and local regulations and standards.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and subsequent interpretations by the Department of Justice require municipalities such as the City of Rancho Cordova to prepare a plan detailing how they will make their streets and roads accessible to disabled individuals. In addition, the plan is addressing California Title 24 requirements. The plan identifies and prioritizes disabled access projects, estimate project costs, highlight and implementation schedule and funding strategy, and grievance and monitoring programs.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans

The City of Rancho Cordova has completed the Draft Final Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plans.
