KTUA worked with the City of Carlsbad on the update of their trails master plan and comprehensive action transportation strategy (CATS). An extensive outreach program was designed by KTUA to seek input about how people use local roads and off-road trails so the city can develop better options for people to get to their homes, schools, work places, retail centers, parks, public transportation and the beach. This input was used to develop two planning documents to identify better ways to connect the city’s roads and trails: the Comprehensive Active Transportation Strategy and Trails Master Plan. The Comprehensive Active Transportation Strategy aims to enhance infrastructure connections to promote travel choices for people who want to walk and bicycle.
The City of Carlsbad’s Trails Master Plan update provides recommendations for enhancing the trail network in the City of Carlsbad for a variety of users with a focus on improving access to trails and open space.
