The City is embarking on a city-wide bike planning effort to create a completely connected, comfortable system of bike lanes that allow people on bikes toget to where they’re going, safely without inconveniencing drivers andwalkers. Much like the current road and sidewalk infrastructure we havefor motorists and pedestrians, protected bike lanes are located on ornext to the road, but are physically separated and only used by peopleriding bikes. The process kicks-off in April with a series of public input meetings about the existing network. A second series of meetingswill occur in July with a proposed network plan. Through careful planning and public input, the 4-month process will build on recent progressto create a vision for the City’s network of connected, protected, andlow-stress bikeways, including many miles of bikeways that will be slated for rapid design and buildout. To achieve these goals will require strong community engagement from all road users - whether you ride your bike everyday or haven’t gotten on one in decades, we want you to be involved! Good bike infrastructure can help solve the mobility challenges we all share.
