Help El Cerrito Create a More Walkable, More Bikeable and Greener City

July 23, 2013 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

El Cerrito is currently developing an Urban Greening Plan and updating its 2007 Circulation Plan for Bicyclists and Pedestrians (now being called the Active Transportation Plan). At this worksho, join EBBC members and other members of the community and learn about planning efforts and provide input into the Urban Greening needs assessment and opportunities inventory and confirm the bicycle and pedestrian network improvements.

There will be a series of three community workshops to allow residents and businesses to discuss opportunities to green the City of El Cerrito. Prior to these workshops you can submit your ideas to help shape the discussion by uploading your photos and comments to the interactive map!

Big Night at Oakland City Council

July 17, 2012 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Oakland City Council votes to adopt two key items tonight:

  • Oakland Complete Streets Policy
    Each city in the East Bay has to adopt a Complete Streets Policy by January 31, 2012 and Oakland is ready to be the first. Staff have prepared a new policy that complies with regional requirements and will ensure that bicycle and pedestrian improvements are included as part of all transportation projects. We will have more details about this policy soon, but until then, Check out our Complete Streets page and the related One Bay Area Grant Program

Help Bring Complete Streets to Your Neighborhood

We succeeded in getting a strong Complete Streets requirement included in the next 4 years of regional transportation monies, and in securing an even stronger focus on bike/ped improvements around BART stations. But we need your help to get each local city to adopt its own Complete Streets Policy by January 31, 2013 and to urge your city to prioritze bike/ped projects as part of this next 4-year cycle of funding.

What you can do:
Attend an upcoming meeting of your local Bicycle Advisory Committee and help provide input on what bike improvements you want to see in the areas identified in this Map of Priority Development Areas in the East Bay.

These areas will receive over $100 million in transportation dollars in the next 4 years and all this money is required to be spent according to your City’s Complete Streets Policy, but we first need to get your City to adopt such a policy. We have until January 31, 2012 to do so. Please get involved. There has never been a time we need your help more!

MTC proposes strong regional Complete Streets Policy

MTC proposes strong regional Complete Streets Policy

The Metropolitan Transportation Commission has proposed one of the strongest Complete Streets policies we are aware of in the nation. They are proposing that every project include a bicycle and pedestrian component, that every project applying for funding to MTC complete a “routine accommodation” checklist at the time the grant application is filed, and that bicycle and pedestrian advisory committees review these checklists. Previously, MTC only required projects to ‘consider’ bike/ped accommodation and that only projects awarded funding fill out the checklist, which was too late in the process to make changes and add back bike and pedestrian components. This is awesome news! The East Bay Bicycle Coalition fully supports this new policy and is going to contact all of our MTC Commissioners to ensure their support.
