City of Modesto City Beat

The City of Modesto is updating its Non-Motorized Transportation Master Plan and wants to hear your thoughts on improving biking and walking access to schools, parks, transit centers, and other destinations around the city.

The Modesto Non-Motorized Master Plan aims to enhance the city’s goals of creating a more walkable and bikeable environment. This plan will help shape the future of Modesto’s transportation network and will ensure that the needs of pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users are met. The plan update is focused on seamlessly connecting people to their destinations, providing driving alternatives that are both healthy and good for the environment, and creating a network all pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users can safely utilize. The plan will replace the previously adopted 2006 Non-Motorized Master Plan and is expected to be completed in late 2019.

To help with this effort, visit the project website and use the Interactive Map to share your comments with us! On the Interactive Map, you can comment on areas you want to see improved, or highlight your favorite walking and biking destinations.
Junior Giants Team Picture
This year, Modesto Junior Giants is serving over 900 kids ages 5-13.  You may have noticed kids and parents utilizing some of the many baseball diamonds located within our parks.  These are likely some our Junior Giants parents, players and coaches.  This FREE program is an incredible way for kids to stay active throughout the summer months.  Registration is full for this season, but mark your calendar for April 2020 to register for next summer's baseball season.
