Turlock Plans Workshop on Bicycle, Pedestrian Transportation

Local cyclists and pedestrians will soon have an opportunity to comment on how the City of Turlock can better serve their needs.

A workshop on the city’s in-development Active Transportation Plan will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 5 in the Yosemite Room of Turlock City Hall, 156 S. Broadway.

"We look forward to hearing from business owners, parents, students, and all residents about why they bike – or do not bike – and where they would like improved bicycle and pedestrian facilities," said Turlock City Planner Rose Stillo.

The plan is intended to review Turlock’s existing system of bike lanes, sidewalks, and crosswalks. Where problem areas are found, infrastructure improvements will be planned.

Those infrastructure improvements won’t come immediately after the plan’s completion, as funding must be identified to complete any city projects. But having a completed Active Transportation plan will qualify the City of Turlock for millions in previously unavailable state and federal grants.

The plan also looks to develop educational programs and initiatives to encourage walking or biking.

The April 5 workshop will begin with a presentation from consultants Alta Planning + Design and Omni-Means on the “Complete Streets” movement. That movement, which suggests that all streets should be welcoming to cars, bikes, pedestrians, and wheelchair users alike, could inform the development of a plan to encourage cycling and walking across Turlock.

Participants will then have the opportunity to help draft the future of Turlock’s bike and pedestrian system through a visioning session. They may also voice concerns regarding specific areas of the city’s bike lane and sidewalk systems.

The workshop will conclude with optional one-hour tours, either on-foot or by bike, to look at real-life local examples of good bikeways and walkways – and those areas which can be improved.

    Biking its great form of transportation but we need to teach some drivers to respect pedestrians, they need to learn to look twice before turning to any direction while people is crossing the street...

"You may get a variety of fabrics for the best activewear for women online, including cotton, spandex, synthetic, bamboo fiber, and Gore-Tex. Each of these materials has distinctive properties that set them apart. Since polyester is incredibly light and comfortable to wear, we advise you to utilize it. Athletic clothing frequently uses polyester as a fabric. Shirts for activewear, sweatpants and jogging jackets usually contain polyester blends. Polyester often dries quickly, making it the perfect fabric for intense workouts."
  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
