City Receives Grant Funding to Help Accelerate Mobility Infrastructure

City Thread Grant

City Thread has selected Santa Rosa as part of a diverse cohort of cities to participate in the Accelerated Mobility Playbook technical assistance program designed to help fast-forward the build-out of their mobility networks. The application was prepared in partnership with the City of Santa Rosa and Bikeable Santa Rosa.

Communities chosen include Bainbridge Island, WA; Syracuse, NY; Gulfport, MS; Cleveland, OH; Milwaukee, WI; Tucson, AZ; Santa Rosa, CA; Petaluma, CA; and Indianapolis, IN.

Santa Rosa will receive $50,000 in Accelerated Mobility Playbook (AMP) technical assistance from the nonprofit consultancy led by national mobility experts Zoe Kircos, Sara Studdard, and Kyle Wagenschutz. This assistance includes a community-specific mobility audit of the city’s current state of practice and an action plan for improved implementation and partnership. 

All cities want safer and connected streets, and there’s a growing consensus that all road users must benefit. But until recently, cities have been stuck. City Thread offers a new model to help cities move forward together faster, making the most of local coalitions and avoiding the familiar roadblocks.

Each of the selected cities will receive a comprehensive assessment that positions them to accelerate their local mobility goals. By aligning public support, political will, and local ambition around a unified vision, cities can take decades off their planned implementation schedule.
