Should the City Council refer to the City Manager to develop a comprehensive ordinance governing a Bicycle Lane and Pedestrian Street Improvements Policy?
At its September 24, 2019 regular meeting the City Council will consider whether to refer to the City Manager to develop a comprehensive ordinance governing a Bicycle Lane and Pedestrian Street Improvements Policy that would, 1. Require simultaneous implementation of recommendations in the City’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans when City streets are repaved; 2. Prioritize bikeways and Vision Zero high-fatality, high-collision streets under the five-year Paving Plan; 3. Encourage the use of quick builds by expediting quick-build projects under $1 million; 4. Require staff to report progress back to Council every two years. Furthermore, refer to the City Manager to draft a revised version of the City’s Complete Streets Policy that would clarify that the presence of an existing or planned bikeway parallel to an arterial does not exempt projects along said arterial from bicycle and micromobility improvements under the Policy.
The Council, whose Agenda & Rules Committee selected this topic, would like to hear from you. How would you like them to decide, and what would you like them to consider?
