Planning the future of mobility for Madera LA VINA AND PARKWOOD COMMUNITIES

4-Creeks Planning Department will be working within the community and with Madera County staff on the production of two Madera County Mobility Studies (La Vina and Parkwood Communities). The projects will include community outreach, workshops, and surveys as the team pieces together future mobility plans for the two communities.

Our Approach

4Creeks will identify any existing issues and concerns and work towards solutions utilizing Complete Streets designs to provide for additional safety and mobility in the communities. A Complete Streets approach will help improve upon mobility for all modes of transportation (pedestrian, bicyclists, transit, and vehicular) and vitalize safety and health.

Our job is not to tell you what needs to be done, but it is to come to your community and listen, ask questions, evaluate existing conditions, verify with the community what we have heard, help the community visualize possibilities, and then, based on what we have seen and heard, apply our experience to help the community decide how the mobility community plans are to be developed.

La Vina Community

The La Vina community has areas within the community and along the main local collector street (Avenue 9) that are in need of infrastructure improvements. The subdivision located south of La Vina was installed with adequate sidewalks, but pedestrian mobility routes do not exist north of the subdivision and entirely along the north side of Avenue 9. A study for the community will result in mobility options for the residents and visitors of the area. The future policies and plan will create a better pedestrian, biking, transit, and vehicle circulation route for the community.

The Parkwood and La Vina Community Mobility study will not be done in the vision of 4Creeks, but the vision of Madera County and its residents who participate in this study and share their insights with us.

Parkwood Community

The Parkwood community has a mixture of streets that have been improved with sidewalks and those that are lacking the infrastructure. The two main local collector streets (Road 27 and Raymond Thomas Street) that connects the Parkwood Community to Avenue 13, are both in need of safer mobility options. Avenue 13 is also missing sidewalk infrastructure along the south portion of the road. The future policies and plan will create a better pedestrian, biking, transit, and vehicle circulation route for the community.
