Oakland’s Bicyclist & Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) was established to advise the City Council on programs and projects related to walking and bicycling.
Open to the public. To receive notice of meeting agendas, subscribe to get updates via GovDelivery.
On the agenda:
- Public Hearing: Clay St (7th St to 17th St) Bike Lanes (20 minutes)—Staff will share the proposed design and take comments from the Commission and the public. The project will reconfigure the traffic striping on Clay St to one lane per direction with buffered bike lanes. Construction is anticipated in 2017 as part of a paving project.
- Introduction to the City’s Government Ethics Act (GEA) (15 minutes)—Jelani Killings, staff to the Public Ethics Commission, will present an introduction to the City’s Government Ethics Act (GEA). This is an informational item to inform BPAC members of their responsibilities under City law.
- Proposed Changes to REMOVE THE EXISTING Oakland Municipal Code (OMC) Requirements for Bike Registration —Bruce Stoffmacher with the Oakland Police Department will describe proposed changes to OMC, Chapter 12.60 (Section 12.60.010) that requires everyone who rides a bicycle in the City of Oakland to have a City-issued bicycle license. As bicyclists can now register their bicycles through free online registry platforms, OPD is evaluating changes and seeks feedback from Oakland’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Commission.
- Telegraph Ave Cycletrack Project Implementation Update —Staff from the Transportation Services Division will provide an update on the Telegraph Ave Cycletrack Project.
- BPAC Paving Committee report back —The Paving Committee (Commissioners Chan, Hwang, and Prinz) will report on contacts made, actions taken, and next steps. [Note: Staff summary of current bikeways/resurfacing coordination is online at www2.oaklandnet.com/oak058991.]
