Final draft of pedestrian and bicycle plans released
Submitted By Rochelle Wheeler
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) has just released the Final Draft Countywide Pedestrian and Bicycle Plans. The Final Draft Plans are scheduled to be considered for adoption by the Alameda CTC Board on Thursday, October 25, 2012.
Together, the Draft Countywide Pedestrian and Bicycle Plans lay out the vision and steps for making Alameda County a safe and convenient place for walking and bicycling over the next 28 years. The plans describe the existing walking and bicycling conditions in the County, the priorities for County-wide bike and pedestrian funding for both capital projects and programs, the total costs to implement the priorities, total expected revenue and next steps for implementing the plans.
Please submit any written comments by Monday, October 15, 2012 at noon to Rochelle Wheeler using the comment form on the plan updates page (http://bit.ly/NnyXqX). Comments received by this date will be compiled and presented to the Alameda CTC Board for its consideration for incorporating into the final plans.
