Project Prioritization for the Active Transportation Program (ATP) for the City of Angels Camp and County of Calaveras  

The CCOG is facilitating and coordinating a project prioritization process for the Active Transportation Program (ATP) funding opportunity.

Work to date includes a kick-off meeting (agenda and materials) and a mid-project meeting (agenda and materials).  You can see the eligible project lists here: Eligible County Projects and Eligible City Projects.

A webinar was held on April 21, 2014 at the Mark Twain Medical Center in San Andreas to review with the public the prioritization process for ATP project applications (webinar presentation PDF). The webinar included an overview of the eligible projects for consideration as derived from the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), the prioritization process, and a short list of projects to apply for funding. The goal is to develop competitive grant applications for projects to be funded under this program in Calaveras County and the City of Angels Camp.

Twenty eligible projects were selected by the City and County from their respective lists, and scored using the evaluation criteria and weights developed by a committee.  You can see the ranked project lists here: Ranked County Projects and Ranked City Projects.

The ATP is a competitive grant program that was created to encourage increased use of active modes of transportation, such as biking and walking. Applications are due to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) by May 21, 2014.  Eligible projects under the ATP include infrastructure as well as non-infrastructure bicycle, pedestrian, and safe routes to school projects.
