    Turlock is striving to become a place where people of all ages and abilities are comfortable walking and bicycling to school, work, shopping, and for recreation. We seek to develop a seamless walking and bicycling network as part of an integrated, sustainable transportation system that supports a high quality of life and a vibrant community. Under the Council-Manager form of government the City Council appoints the City Manager to serve as chief administrative officer providing direction for all departments in accordance with the policies established by the City Council. The City Manager is committed to providing supportive leadership that creates an environment in which the community, City Council and all employees work together using their abilities to the fullest to enhance the overall quality of life in Turlock.

    A large majority of the City's residents have traditionally used personal vehicles as their primary form of transportation and the existing City infrastructure reflects improvements that primarily benefit that mode of travel. However, in recent years there has been a growing interest from various stakeholders in alternative forms of transportation. The City has undertaken significant capital improvement projects with dedicated pedestrian and bicycle facilities. In addition, the City's located in a non-attainment area and the poor air quality is made worse through increased vehicle emissions, which results in negative environmental and health consequences. The City has been taking steps to address deficiencies within these non-motorized networks, but efforts have typically been segmented and solutions have been location-based without significant consideration of the network as a whole
