Will you join us? It’s Clean Air Day on Oct. 4 and a great way to celebrate active transportation in our region.

Wednesday, October 4th at 9:00 am

Truitt Bark Park, 1818 Q Street

* Following program remarks, there will be an optional bike ride around the block to experience the new bikeways

If you are planning to attend and have not done so already, please RSVP to me or to midtownsacramentostation@gmail.com

The event will include remarks from Sacramento County Supervisor and Chair of SJJPA Pat Hume, Ripon Vice Mayor and Chair of SJRRC Leo Zuber, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, Councilmember Katie Valenzuela, Assemblymember Stephanie Nguyen, Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, Jameson Parker from the Midtown Association, Megan Johnson and Phil Vulliet with the City of Sacramento, and former council member Steve Hansen. The event will also include information on the important nexus between active transportation, rail transportation, and affordable housing. Through its work on the Midtown Train Station,  the SJRRC successfully partnered with the City of Sacramento and provided $3 million in grant funding to support the bikeway extensions along 19th and 21st. SJRRC was also able to partner with EAH Housing to help secure grant funding to build out the bikeway network to the On Broadway 140-unit affordable housing project, which is less than a mile from the Midtown Station.
