Rails With Trails
Corridor Plan

The project was funded by Caltrans through a Fiscal Year 2010/11 Community Based Transportation Planning grant of $90,000 with a $10,000 local match from MCOG. The plan's focus was on Hopland, Ukiah and Willits, with potential interregional connections, along the North Coast Railroad Authority (NCRA) railway. The professional team of Alta Planning + Design with its subcontractors Winzler & Kelly and Redwood Community Action Agency's Natural Resources Services division was selected to work with local stakeholders and develop the plan.

The team researched existing conditions and requirements, compiled public input through workshops and surveys, and worked with a Technical Advisory Group.

Public workshops were held September 21 and 22, 2011 in Willits and Ukiah. The workshops are to be available for viewing on Mendocino Access Television, via TV broadcast and internet video. A third workshop was held to review the draft plan on March 13, 2012 (see flyer below). The final plan was presented and adopted by MCOG at its regular public meeting on June 4, 2012.

The following materials were produced during the project:.
