Granite Bay Community Plan

Granite Bay Community Plan Circulation Element Update

Placer County has launched an effort to update the Circulation Element of the Granite Bay Community Plan to revisit the transportation goals and policies for relevance to today’s community environment and to ensure applicability in the future.  Long range, cumulative traffic levels, associated with locally and regionally generated traffic within and through the Plan Area, will be modeled in order to meet the main objective of identifying appropriate Level of Service (LOS) standards and associated plan infrastructure needs within the Community Plan area.  Additionally, an update of the Circulation Element will include an analysis of Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), consistent recently adopted California Environmental Quality Act guidelines as required by Senate Bill 743.

No changes to the Community Plan's land use designations are proposed as part of this update effort.  However, an Environmental Impact Report and traffic model update will be prepared which will include land use inputs for “reasonably foreseeable” projects pursuant to CEQA requirements, thereby taking into consideration projects currently being processed. 

The proposed update to the Granite Bay Community Plan Circulation Element will include an outreach effort to engage community members on the following focus area: 

  • Goals and policies - including community transportation values
  • Definition of future transportation system priorities - including alternative modes
  • Level of Service (LOS) designation
  • Consideration for programs to reduce Vehicle Miles of Travel (VMT)
  • Related infrastructure needs and potential funding sources  

Public Workshops will be held at the Eureka School district offices on Eureka Road (5455 Eureka Road) at the following dates/times: 

Jan. 9th at 6:00 p.m.
Jan. 23rd at 6:00 p.m.
Feb. 6th at 6:00 p.m.
Feb. 20th at 6:00 p.m.
Mar. 20th at 6:00 p.m.

Additional workshops may be added as needed.

“Our County transportation systems are integral to a good quality of life for residents, visitors, and our local business owners,” stated Ken Grehm, Director of Public Works. “These workshops are intended to provide key stakeholders in our community an opportunity to learn, discuss, and provide feedback on policies that affect them every day.”

Information from the workshops will be available below
