City to Host Public Meetings for Draft Bicycle Plan
An image from the Final Draft Bike Plan
The long-awaited final draft bicycle plan, all 212 pages, was released by the Department of Transportation today. This comes after last May when bikeway maps from the plan were released, causing an array of emotions from cyclists across the city. Now that the complete plan is available, we're sure that more criticisms and praises will be heard. "The proposed draft Bicycle Plan is a comprehensive update of the current Bicycle Plan first adopted in 1996 and re-adopted by the City Council in 2007," describes a letter (.pdf) from the city. "The draft Bicycle Plan proposed approximately 696 miles of new bikeways and new policies related to implementation, education, enforcement, engineering, parking, transit integration, maintenance and evaluation."
Whether you like the plan or not, there will be a series of four public meetings (listed below) for the public to once again give input.
