We imagine cities and towns with an emphasis on being outdoors on interconnected walking paths and bicycle networks, with vibrant business districts, transit that works and community socializing fostered by trails and parks and an ease for getting out and about. This is a cross between traditional small-town America and a modern, progressive thinking city.

Our Challenge
Today Shasta County has unacceptably high rates of debilitating health outcomes directly related to inactivity, and some of the state's highest rates of pedestrian death and injury. Shasta County families also face an exceptionally high cost of transportation since there is no other choice but to drive for every trip.

This high cost and lack of transportation choice destabilizes families, leads to poor health, and drives talented young people and retired couples to seek another place to live and play. Leaving our families stressed, our businesses without the employees they need, and our economy at risk.

Our Work
Yes we have challenges, but more than that we have opportunities! We are convinced solutions are available and readily implementable to create great cities and towns in the places we call home.

We partner with local leaders, engage the community, and provide services to create people-friendly places and great experiences for everyone, walking, biking and using our trails and public spaces. Shasta Living Streets has grown considerably, innovated new programs and services, helped shift public vision and understanding, and supported projects that have brought new amenities, more funding and breakthrough change to our community.
