Time running out to comment on Seattle Bicycle Master Plan

by | Jul 17, 2013

There’s still time to give your input on Seattle’s new Bicycle Master Plan, but comments must be received by July 26. The proposed plan adds a combination of cycle tracks, trails and neighborhood greenways.

Using public input, the draft plan was developed over the past year and reviewed by the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board. Two phases of outreach have been conducted to date, including an online survey and mapping tool, and a series of public meetings in November 2012. The draft includes an updated policy framework; a network plan map (showing the location and type of new bicycle facilities throughout the city); a bicycle facilities visual glossary; recommendations for end-of-trip facilities and programs; and a prioritization framework for how new projects will be evaluated.
“Council intends for the new Bicycle Master Plan to make Seattle the leading city when it comes to providing a safe, connected bicycle network that works for all riders, ages 8-80,” said Councilmember Tom Rasmussen.

Check out the map of proposals for the northwest sector, including our neighborhood.
You can download a comment sheet from the website, or email comments to [email protected]. Comments are due by July 26.
