Come join city staff and engineers for a walking tour of the proposed Regnart Creek bike/ped trail that will run from Pacifica Drive, behind Cupertino City Hall and then down to Blaney Ave. This off-street link will be an important segment for The Cupertino Loop that will connect Cupertino High School/Barnhart neighborhoods with the Library and then continue on to the Monta Vista High neighborhoods.
Walk-Bike Cupertino strongly supports this effort as it is:
- Safer to navigate: it keeps our students and residents off busy streets;
- Healthier for the individuals and the neighborhoods: exercise and cleaner air; makes
- Neighborhoods safer: It is well documented that trails and walk-ways that attract participants are safer. When people walk and ride, they meet/make friends and build community! In fact, three sample areas in Cupertino – Scenic Circle, Creekside Park and Orogrande – have had no incidents of crime in the past 5 years (per the Santa Clara County Sheriff)
- Neighborhoods more pleasant to live in – reports show that neighborhoods with great trails and amenities are more highly valued than other neighborhoods..
While neighbors adjacent to the creek will likely have concerns and issues about safety and privacy. We trust that the city and the community will have a constructive dialogue and solutions to any concerns that might arise.
