Bike Master Plan public meetings start Wednesday

The city is developing an update to the Bicycle Master Plan adopted in 2007, and you are about to get your first chance to get a look at the draft network map of future bicycle facilities they have created.

The first of three public meetings is Wednesday, 5:30–7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The three meetings (plus an online “Lunch and Learn November 15) will be a chance to see which roads are being considered for cycle tracks, neighborhood greenways, bike lanes and more. It’s also a chance to give feedback to make sure all the current bike network gaps you face are included (see the attached map for an idea of where SDOT sees gaps today). For more on SDOT’s recent State of Seattle Bicycling Environment Report, see our previous post.

More details on the meetings from SDOT:

The City has been developing a vision of making riding a bicycle a comfortable and integral part of daily life in Seattle for people of all ages and abilities. The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT), the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board (SBAB), community members and local businesses have been hard at work over the past several months revising a citywide bicycle network map, and developing possible encouragement and marketing programs to achieve this vision. Three public meetings and an online Lunch and Learn are being held to get feedback at this critical juncture in the planning phase.What:  Public Meetings

Time:  5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Date and Location:

November 7 – Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room, 600 Fourth Avenue

November 8 – New Holly Gathering Hall, 7054 32nd Ave South

November 13 – UW Gould Hall, NE 40th Street between University Way NE and 15th Avenue NE

Purpose:

SDOT is sharing a draft citywide map of proposed bike facilities so that the public can provide feedback about riding bikes on the identified streets and if there are gaps. Different types of facilities such as Neighborhood Greenways and cycle tracks will be discussed, and staff will be on hand to discuss the overall policy direction of the plan update, trade-offs of adding bike improvements and the effectiveness of possible programs to encourage more bike riding.

People unable to attend a public meeting are invited to participate in an online Lunch and Learn on November 15 from 12 to 1 p.m. Individuals can register at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/718370686. SDOT staff will provide an overview of material displayed the public meetings and the audience will be invited to submit questions. Space is limited.

All of the work completed to date is available online at www.seattle.gov/transportation/bikemaster.htm. Click on the Project Library to read all the presentations given to the SBAB, the State of the Seattle Bicycling Environment Report and the Phase One Public Engagement Summary Report.
