Bicycle Transportation Plan (2006)

Status

The Bicycle Transportation Plan is a Working Document last discussed at a City Council Work session in December 2008.

Purpose

The Bicycle Transportation Plan serves as a guide for city staff to plan and coordinate the development of a comprehensive city-wide bicycle system. It encourages a two-tiered system that is based on rider skill level to accommodate the needs of a diverse user group. Type A Network is intended for advanced bicyclists and is designated in bicycle lanes on half arterial streets, bicycle lanes on collector streets, and interim bicycle routes on existing arterials and unimproved streets where bicyclists and motorists share the road. Type B Network reflects shorter trips made by less-skilled and adolescent bicyclists, yet allows users the opportunity to connect to a much larger system. Type B is typically located along existing, proposed and future greenways, multi-use trails and wide sidewalks (8’-10’).
