AB 2615 (Carrillo) State highway system: parks and recreation: accessibility for bicycles and pedestrians.

Position:Watch
Status:Senate Appropriations Committee
Summary:
Requires the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), to the extent possible and where feasible, to partner with the California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) and other appropriate public agencies in order to develop strategies and plans to maximize safe and convenient access for bicycles and pedestrians to any parks adjacent or connected to the state highway system.
Comments:

Writing in support of the bill, a group of park-supporting organizations suggests that this bill, in effect, creates a modified “Safe Routes to Parks Program,” similar to the federal and state Safe Routes to School Program. 

Supporters write that this bill continues a long history of local parks and recreation departments and youth-serving organizations working in concert with state entities and local public works departments to promote the value of healthy and active lifestyles.
