Concord City Council bikeways discussion: Willow Pass, Cowell, Galindo

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 - 6:00pm to 10:00pm 1950 Parkside Dr, Concord, CA 94519-2526

Concord’s “complete streets” plans for Willow Pass Rd, Cowell Rd, and Galindo St are on City Council’s agenda as item 6A.

Bike Concord’s Advocacy Committee has not developed a position yet. 

However, there are concerns about the plans, e.g. that sections of Willow Pass Rd (particularly from Market St to Galindo St) are planned to have no bikeway of any kind added. Instead, the sidewalk is to be widened, in spite of the fact that Municipal Code 10.45.240 makes it unlawful to bicycle on the sidewalk “in front of stores, schools, or buildings used for business purposes.”
