The Calipatria Active Transportation Plan has been adopted!

Thank you for helping to shape this Plan by providing input through surveys, social media, and the Community Conversations event. We are excited to share that the City Council adopted the Plan on December 8.

How can you stay involved?
This Active Transportation Plan represents a significant step towards improving walking and biking in our community. The City will work to secure funding and begin implementing priority projects, and will continue to engage with the community as projects are implemented.

To help with those efforts or to stay in the loop, contact us.


Thank you for your interest in the Calipatria Active Transportation Plan! The plan provides a blueprint for a future Calipatria where walking and riding a bike are safer and more convenient ways to get around. The heart of the plan includes a comprehensive network of facilities and programs designed to make walking and biking viable choices for everyday trips and recreation.
