Welcome to the
City of Carson
Active Transportation and Community Connectivity Plan

Virtual Meeting Room


The Carson Active Transportation and Community Connectivity Plan (CATCP) will analyze existing conditions within Carson that present community-wide challenges, seek input from the public and community stakeholders to fully understand existing and future transportation network needs, and recommend projects and programs strategic to creating a healthier and more vibrant Carson. The plan will be crafted to enable swift implementation in order to achieve citywide connectivity and pedestrian and bicycle facilities including safer routes to local schools, parks, transit, and more.


  • Develop a comprehensive plan informed by extensive community and stakeholder engagement;
  • Decrease vehicle miles traveled by increasing the proportion of trips accomplished by biking and walking;
  • Improve the safety and mobility of pedestrians and bicyclists of all ages and abilities;
  • Support the active transportation efforts of the region to achieve greenhouse gas reduction targets;
  • Develop a well-defined project list to improve active transportation safety and connectivity as well as to encourage non-motorized commuting;
  • Improve public health outcomes, especially for residents living in areas identified as a disadvantaged community;
  • Integrate sustainable design standards that foster climate resiliency;
  • Encourage the development of diverse housing types in areas that are supported by new active transportation options by facilitating low-income and mixed-use housing in transit rich areas; and
  • Ensure that disadvantaged communities fully share in the benefits of the program.
