Past Events

Public Workshop to Prioritize Projects for the Moraga Walk | Bike Plan
Thursday, February 4, 7:00 to 8:30 pm; in the La Sala Room at the Hacienda de las Flores (2100 Donald Drive, in Moraga)

After months of research and planning, the time has come to make important decisions for the Moraga Walk | Bike Plan. Last November, the needs assessment process was completed, which included input from Moraga residents about their needs and concerns, ideas, and suggestions about how to making biking and walking safer and more enjoyable in Town. The 1,500 or so comments received from the public presented a rich picture of the community’s thoughts and opinions about walking and biking in Moraga.

Since then, the project consultant and Town staff formulated a set of projects to improve walking and biking conditions in Moraga. The recommendations respond closely to the main needs and concerns expressed by the public. Unfortunately, the list of recommendations contains more projects than the Town will be able to accomplish, given limited funds. To narrow the list down to a manageable length, top priorities must be identified.

Help the Town figure out those priorities at a workshop on Thursday, February 4! There will be a presentation of the proposed recommendations, followed by two group exercises to discuss them. The recommendations will form the central part of the draft Moraga Walk | Bike Plan, which the public will be able to review and comment on more fully.

Join the project consultant and Town staff for a fun, informative discussion—with refreshments. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the workshop or about the Walk | Bike Plan more generally, contact Coleman Frick (Assistant Planner for the Town), at or at (925) 888-7039.

Needs Assessment Process

The needs assessment process provided an opportunity for the project consultants and Town staff  to hear from members of the community about the needs and concerns of pedestrians and cyclists; the obstacles and challenges to walking and biking; and your ideas and suggestions for improving conditions. The outreach for this phase of the project has concluded and a summery report will be available in mid-late November. Below is a list of past outreach opportunities from which the report information was derived:

Project background

The existing Moraga Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (MBPP) is in need of a comprehensive update that meets the Goals and Objectives outlined in the General Plan. There is a strong local interest in making Moraga a better connected community, one that accommodates the transportation and recreation needs of all residents.

The Moraga Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update (PBMP) is intended to improve circulation within the Town, and make transportation safer and more enjoyable for all users, while prioritizing multi-modal transportation projects rather than traditional road improvement projects.

The Town selected a consultant to prepare the PBMP Update based through the requests for proposals and interview processes. On February 11, the Town Council approved the PBMP contract, schedule, and scope of work.

On April 22, Town Council approved the Moraga Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP) Update and Wayfinding Plan Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) Charter. The CAC includes one member (each) of the Planning Commission, Design Review Board, Park and Recreation Commission, and four members of the community to provide input and recommendations on elements of the PBMP and Wayfinding Plan throughout the development process. The PBMP CAC is expected to meet approximately five times over the course of the plan's development.
