Draft Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Final Public Review (UPDATED)

Update: There will be an open house for the plan on Monday, September 26 from 5 to 7 PM in the Bascom/Tykeson Rooms at the Eugene Public Library.

The draft Eugene Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan is now available for public review. City staff is seeking input on this draft plan through October 14. The plan can be found at www.eugenepedbikeplan.org where there is also a link to a survey for people to provide input on the plan.

This is an essential time for families to look over this plan and make sure that your neighborhood is safe for walking and biking! Review it and make sure what is broken now is down to be fixed so that other families will feel comfortable walking and biking to school more often!

The Eugene Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan provides the City of Eugene with the projects and policies necessary to create a first-class city for bicycling and walking, reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, and provide for a well-designed, integrated, safe, and efficient multi-modal transportation system. The Master Plan will serve as the Pedestrian and Bicycle element of the city’s Transportation System Plan.

The primary elements of the plan are as follows:

* A proposed set of pedestrian and bicycle policies that are recommended for adoption as part of the TSP update;

* The list of proposed capital projects and feasibility studies that will replace the pedestrian and bicycle projects in the current TransPlan;

* A list of intersections that have been identified for further analysis to identify safety issues and potential improvements; and

* Recommended code revisions.

Staff will present the plan to the City Council on Wednesday, October 12.
