Oakland’s Bicyclist & Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) was established to advise the City Council on programs and projects related to walking and bicycling.
On the agenda:
- 2017 Draft Pedestrian Master Plan Update (60 minutes)—Iris Starr, Strategic Advisor to the Director of Transportation, will share the draft 2017 Pedestrian Master Plan (Plan) and take comments. As described in the attached report, the Plan provides a five year framework for the City of Oakland to implement changes to improve the pedestrian environment. The Plan is organized around four goals: Holistic Community Safety, Equity, Responsiveness, and Vitality. The goals inform five discrete outcomes and numerous policy recommendations. Additionally, the Plan provides an analysis of existing walking conditions, identifies a High Injury Network and a prioritization methodology that considers safety, equity, and walkability. The draft for public review is available at https://beta.oaklandca.gov/documents/pedestrian-master-plan-update.
- iBond & Equity Analysis (30 minutes)—Matt Nichols, Policy Director for Infrastructure & Transportation, Office of the Mayor, will share the work of an Infrastructure Working Group convened in 2017 to discuss the requirements of the recently passed iBond (Measure KK). At a series of three meetings staff released a “beta” tool - the CIP Dashboard to visualize the impact of different investments. Staff will provide a summary of those three meetings and the walk through the CIP tool at oakbec.s3.amazonaws.com/Dev/Equity_Dashboard_2.html.
