The County of Orange is developing an Active Transportation Plan (ATP) that will establish a vision and a roadmap for implementation of pedestrian and bicyclist facilities within the County’s unincorporated communities and along County-owned flood control channels. By planning a safe and convenient active transportation network, the plan’s goal is to connect more people with jobs, goods, services, and public transit networks without the use of a car, thereby improving public health, and reducing environmental impacts from vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Development of this plan is funded in part by the FY 2020-21 Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant Program.

Walk Audits

OC Public Works hosted a series of online “virtual walk audits” in the communities listed below in order to assess walking and biking conditions. These consisted of an online meeting with OC Public Works staff to view maps of communities and assess opportunities for pedestrian and bicyclist facilities. Each virtual walk audit included “stops” at various locations in which participants discussed barriers to mobility, and helped our team understand preferred improvements.

  • Monday November 16th – Rossmoor Island (near Los Alamitos)
  • Tuesday November 17th – North Tustin (Near Tustin and Orange)
  • Wednesday November 18th – Ladera Ranch / Las Flores / Rancho Mission Viejo (Near Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita)
