Michelle Vance, Economic Development Coordinator

Michelle Vance, Economic Development Coordinator for the City of Tehachapi, spoke to the Tehachapi Lions Club on May 19 about three proposed projects for the Active Transportation Program Grant. The grants, if awarded and implemented, will greatly enhance public safety and non-vehicular connectivity for our community. The three proposed projects are:

1) Cherry Lane Southside Sidewalk Project: This project will close the existing gaps in the sidewalk from Tucker Road to Elm Street

2) Tehachapi Boulevard Class I Bike Lane Phase II: This project will install a Class I bike lane on the north side of Tehachapi Boulevard from Dennison Road to Steuber Road

3) Valley Boulevard Northside Sidewalk: This project includes constructing a curb, gutter, sidewalk and landscaping on the north side of Valley Boulevard from Mulberry Street to Curry Street.

There are points awarded for community support and in particular support from other public agencies and special districts in the community. The City of Tehachapi respectfully requests the assistance of our community by writing letters of support for each of the above mentioned projects. You can mail your letters to City of Tehachapi, Attention: Jay Schlosser, 115 South Robinson Street, Tehachapi, California 93561. Or you can email
