Policy for a Multi-jurisdictional Trail

Contra Costa County Department of Public Works


Bluhon Group provided planning and stakeholder outreach services for developing a master policy plan for long term capital improvement to an 18-mile multi-use trail corridor in Contra Costa County. The corridor — a popular recreational and non-motorized transportation facility — traverses five cities and is managed by several agencies.


Bluhon Group facilitated an appointed task force and designed the public outreach process.


The final landscape program consisted of design guidelines, an economic implementation strategy, and governance structure for a citizens advisory committee. The County Board of Supervisors adopted the plan unanimously and serves as the guiding policy today for all improvements in the corridor today.
