Master Plans & Policies
The City has a updated, proposed Pedestrian + Bicycle Master Plan as of early 2015. This plan is in final draft form and is currently awaiting adoption by the City Council. This plan is our primary document guiding the City's development and maintenance of new pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and outlining our bicycle-related education and promotion programs.
A particular focus of the plan update will be to incorporate a low-stress, family-friendly bikeway network connecting our neighborhoods into and through downtown.
