 The City of Lompoc Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan

This plan specifically identifies and assesses the City's walking and bicycling needs, and scopes and prioritizes proposed future improvements.  The primary focus is along heavily traveled school routes, but the plan also considers all areas with priority pedestrian and bicycling needs.  Grant funding for active transportation projects (bicycle and pedestrian network) will be more easily obtainable, as the existence of this plan qualifies the city for grants that are not available otherwise.  It will also streamline the planning process for future active transportation projects.

Thank you for staying tuned! More upcoming opportunities to get involved again! 

The plan will undergo an almost immediate update due to a number of the projects proposed not being consistent with the City's General Plan, Circulation Element. These projects include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedestrian/Bicycle bridge crossing Santa Ynez River near State Route 246 including a connection to the City’s Class 1 Bikeway (pedestrian/bicycle path) network.

  • Class 1 Bikeway (pedestrian/bicycle path) to the beach including a connection to the City’s Class 1 Bikeway network.

  • Ocean Avenue Class 1 Bikeway (pedestrian/bicycle path) and/or Class II Bike Lanes.

  • H Street Class 1 Bikeway (pedestrian/bicycle path) and/or Class II Bike Lanes.

  • Pedestrian/Bicycle path from Allan Hancock College to Vandenberg Village.

  • Pine Avenue Class II Bike Lanes.

Including these projects will require a revision to the City's General Plan, Circulation Element. The Planning Division will be ramping up to update the Circulation Element in the coming months. More to come!

Thanks again!!!
