Subject: Bike Plan Update

Dear Neighborhood Councils,

Below is an update regarding the City's efforts to update the Bicycle Plan:

The Bicycle Plan Update is a collaborative effort between Department of City Planning (DCP) and Department of Transportation (DOT) to update the existing Bicycle Plan originally adopted in 1996 with technical amendments adopted in 2002.

To date, four regional workshops were held in February/March. Comment Cards have been distributed to council offices, city libraries, and to DCP community planners overseeing community plan updates. Hundreds of comments have been received at the workshops and via the project's website (www.labikeplan.org). Currently City staff is evaluating draft policies received by the consultant team and will discuss them with members of the technical advisory committee (team of City departments responsible for the implementation of the Bike Plan). Staff will continue to accept comments.

Regional meetings around the City will be conducted in fall to discuss draft Bicycle Plan including policies and routes. Locations and dates to be determined.

At the project website www.labikeplan.org the public can provide comments on the project, view bike routes proposed by members of the public, and access bicycling resources and documents.

Continued input and ideas are gladly welcomed and appreciated. For questions, please do not hesitate to call or write. Thank you.
