UPDATE - Sustainable Transportation Plan Sessions and Workshops Planned

PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale is preparing a Sustainable Transportation Plan (STP) with core goals of improving traffic safety and reducing greenhouse gas emissions through roadway improvements, amenities, and features that make non-vehicular modes of travel safer and more enjoyable. As part of the project, the STP will engage with people who live, work, and spend time in Palmdale to identify places where sustainable transportation improvements can be implemented to enhance connectivity, safety, and mobility. Residents, visitors, and commuters are all invited to participate in developing Palmdale’s STP.  

All workshops and listening sessions will present the same content. A listening session is available on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 4 p.m. To register visit the project website at 

The first in-person workshop will take place at Marie Kerr Recreation Center, 2723-A West Rancho Vista Blvd., on Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. The second in-person workshop will take place at Chimbole Cultural Center, 38350 Sierra Hwy., on Thursday, Aug. 11 from 5:30 - 7 p.m. If you cannot attend either of these workshops, there is also a virtual workshop available on Tuesday, August 16, from Noon to 1:30 p.m. To sign up for the virtual session, visit 

Sustainable transportation refers to transportation that contributes to reduced greenhouse gas emissions. These modes of transportation are affordable and either low-emission, energy-efficient, or electric. Some examples of sustainable transportation projects include: first/last mile projects for connectivity; safe routes to schools and parks; protected bike lanes; complete sidewalks with streetscape; accessible and welcoming transit hubs; more visible signs and signals; traffic calming measures; designated carpool loading areas; and, bike share programs/stations.
