2017 County Bike Plan Next Heads to County Council
The Transportation Board endorsed the Draft Bicycle Plan last night unanimously. After last night it heads to Council Chambers for a hearing and hopefully, a vote to adopt. Its not on the agenda yet so stay tuned. It might make it onto the June agenda but if not, July. Meanwhile, here is a semifinal version. I don't expect too many changes (mostly polishing up the prose) so if you have not looked at it yet, here is your chance.
Note that no one showed up to testify or offer comment last night except a couple of us who are on the bicycle plan subcommittee. I don't know if that means everyone is happy with the draft or if there is just massive indifference.
This is a massive upgrade compared to the more rudimentary 2005 edition and I'm pretty happy with it. The document hits all the E's but does so on policy, leaving engineering details to what will be best practice when stuff gets done.
Stay tuned, and please show up in Council Chambers when this is being discussed and debated.
