Thank you for attending our previous outreach events!

On September 24, 2019, the City of Citrus Heights hosted an open house at Mesa Verde High School to gather community input on the Carriage Drive and Lauppe Lane Safe Schools Corridor Plan. Flyers in English, Spanish, and Russian.

On November 13, 2019, the City of Citrus Heights held a pop-up event during school pick-up time at Mesa Verde to get additional input from parents, teachers, and students. Flyer - English     Flyer - Spanish

After additional feedback on the existing conditions is received from the community, the city will provide a summary of all comments. This feedback summary will be the basis for developing conceptual designs and alternatives for the project corridor. Another wave of community outreach will then be conducted to receive feedback on the proposed concepts.

Project Status:

This project began in March 2019, and public engagement is underway. The first open house was hosted September 24, 2019. An online survey is available now (see above), to collect feedback from those unable to attend one of the events. Check back for more information about the project, including opportunities to share with city staff at "pop-up" events at the nearby schools.

Project Description:

Over the past three years, the three schools located along the Carriage Drive/Lauppe Lane corridor have experienced a 25% enrollment increase and the large majority of students arrive to school in cars.  The increase in enrollment has contributed to already high peak vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle and parking demands, increased vehicular speeds, midblock and uncontrolled pedestrian crossings, and school ingress and egress concerns.

The project will evaluate the Carriage Drive and Lauppe Lane corridor and on-site school circulation to identify appropriate, cost-effective measures to mitigate deficiencies. The scope of this project includes community engagement to identify community based solutions and will tailor the ultimate design to the needs and desires of both the residential and school communities.  Once complete, the Plan will be used to seek final design and construction funding.
