About

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.

Virtual Walk Audits

If you were unable to attend one of our hosted virtual walk audits, self-guided audits are available below. Please click on the community you’re interested in to be guided through the virtual audit process. Click on the numbered stops along each audit “route” to see images accompanied by descriptions of strengths and opportunities for improvement. While conducting the audit, record your recommendations using the public input map located on this website to identify challenges and opportunities while walking and biking in that community. Comments are not limited to the audit’s route – if there are other locations within unincorporated Orange County that you would like to comment on, please do so utilizing the input map.

Events

OC Public Works will be hosting a series of online “virtual walk audits” in the communities listed below in order to assess walking and biking conditions. This will consist of an online meeting with OC Public Works staff to view maps of your community and assess opportunities for pedestrian and bicyclist facilities. Each virtual walk audit will include “stops” at various locations in which participants can discuss barriers to mobility, and help our team understand preferred improvements. We invite you to participate in the virtual walk audit in your area and provide input on what types of improvements you would like to see.

All virtual walk audits will be hosted from 6-7pm per the schedule below.  To RSVP, please e-mail us at info@walkbikeocpw.com to confirm which virtual walk audit events you would like to attend.
