On Oct. 30, the Piedmont Planning Commission will host a public workshop on the recently launched process to develop Piedmont’s first Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP).
The purpose of the workshop is to hear from members of the community about the needs and concerns of pedestrians and cyclists in Piedmont; the obstacles and challenges to walking and biking in our city; and the public’s ideas for making walking and biking in Piedmont safer and easier.
The input will be used to develop and prioritize recommended improvements throughout the city.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Piedmont Community Hall, 711 Highland Ave..
Everyone who responds to the survey will be eligible to win one of three donated $25 gift cards for Mulberry’s Market (courtesy of the City’s consultant on the PBMP).
The survey will remain open through Nov. 16, 2013.
People are also encouraged to email any additional thoughts and comments on the needs and challenges to walking and biking in Piedmont to Kate Black, City Planner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, the City is wrapping up an “existing conditions” report for the PBMP.
This background report summarizes existing local conditions and issues relevant to walking and biking in Piedmont. It covers such topics as the city’s street network, key destinations around the city, facilities for walking and biking, and collision statistics.
The report will be made available to the public for review and comment once it has been finalized.
The PBMP is being funded entirely through a grant from the Alameda County Transportation Commission (CTC; www.alamedactc.org) and through the City’s existing funds for pedestrian and bicycle improvements (pass-through Measure B funds), also distributed by the Alameda CTC.
