Weigh-in: County-wide Project Priorities

In November 2016, Santa Cruz County voters approved Measure D, a 1/2 cent sales tax to fund transportation projects including Highway 1 bike and pedestrian bridges at Chanticleer and Mar Vista Drive, road repairs, Coastal Rail Trail design, review, and construction, and a Highway 17 wildlife crossing. Additionally, each jurisdiction will receive discretionary funds to repair and maintain roads as well as implement bike and pedestrian projects.

Bike Santa Cruz County will work to ensure cyclists needs are met, but we need your input. Below is a list of projects we believe to be top priorities in each jurisdiction. Please review each project list, and complete the survey at the bottom of the page. Your feedback is crucial to serving the community. Thank you!
