Interested community members are invited to come to a local Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) meeting being held next week to provide input on the updates to the Countywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans.
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is updating the 2006 Countywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans, which are used to identify countywide capital project and program priorities and guide the allocation of countywide funds for bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
The agency says the goal of these updates is to reflect current bicycling and walking conditions, needs and priorities in Alameda County. The update process began in May 2010 and final draft plans will be released in December 2011 before adoption in early 2012.
Currently, the Alameda CTC is visiting local Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) meetings to request input from the public on the countywide priorities for capital pedestrian and bicycle projects.
Staff will review maps showing both the entire countywide pedestrian and bicycle draft vision networks for the next 25 years, and the more limited prioritized draft networks of capital projects.
Feedback will be requested on the overall priorities and the specific capital projects, such as bikeways, access routes to transit, and pedestrian access to major transit stops and stations.
