HRC End of Year 2017

On Saturday, May 13, 2017, the City of Rancho Cucamonga and Healthy RC partnered with SCAG, SBCTA, and the Go Human campaign to host Open Streets RC. Open Streets RC was a community event that re-imagined our streets and looked at ways that we can make them safer, more beautiful, and more accessible to everyone of every ability. The event closed Town Center Drive (from Terra Vista Parkway to Spruce Avenue) and Elm Avenue (from Church Street to Town Center Drive) to cars and transformed the streets to places that were safer and more enjoyable to walk, bike, and play.
The event also featured a number demonstration projects including temporary buffered bike lanes, a pop-up cycle track, safer intersections, bike corrals, and parklets. Community residents had the opportunity to explore new, innovative projects to make walking and bicycling safer and more enjoyable and provide valuable feedback to the City on their experiences. Community input is critical as it will help inform and guide future projects to make the City of Rancho Cucamonga one of the safest cities in the nation. The Ron Ives Bicycle Rodeo was also present and was a huge hit with children and their families.
An estimated 5,000 people attended the event throughout the day. The event was planned by community members, Healthy RC partners, and a multi-departmental team that included the City Manager’s Office, the Community Services Department, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department, Public Works, Engineering, Planning, Environmental Services, the Fire District, and the Library
