[Update: this item was originally scheduled for the October 15 agenda. It is now on the agenda for the October 29 meeting. Details have been updated below]
Tell Council to adopt a new Bicycle Lane and Pedestrian Street Improvements Policy at their October 29th meeting. We’ve worked with Councilmembers Robinson and Droste to develop this policy, which focuses on accelerating bike and ped projects with quick-build strategies. It will:
Require staff to implement Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan recommendations when City streets are repaved.
Require that 50 percent of the repaving budget go to bikeways and high-injury streets until they meet a minimum surface standard.
Encourage the use of quick builds by expediting quick-build projects under $1 million.
Require staff to report progress back to Council every two years.
This item is expected to go to Council at their October 29th meeting, and we need you to be there and voice support for this bill. Join Bike East Bay and our members as we show support for better bikeways in Berkeley!
