December Bicycle Projects Update
Below is an update on the bicycle projects happening around town:
Bicycle Capital Improvement Program Project Update at 12/05 City Council Meeting
Hear an update on the City’s Bicycle Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) at the December 5, 6:00 p.m. City Council meeting. This presentation will provide information on existing and proposed bicycle and pedestrian projects including the Hollister Class I Bike Path, San Jose Creek Bike Path, Hollister Complete Streets, Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and more. Currently, there are 9 active bicycle CIP projects with an estimated budget of just under $11 million dollars for FY 17/18. Additional projects may evolve from the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan once it is complete. More information on the City’s Capital Improvement Program Division can be found here. For more information on these projects, and the other bicycle projects that will presented to Council, please click here to read the staff report.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Moves Along
The citywide Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) is moving along. The BPMP will facilitate the development of integrated bicycle and pedestrian systems throughout Goleta with connections to other regional bicycle and pedestrian systems. There have been a number of opportunities for public input including an extensive survey, workshops and research; more opportunities will be scheduled in the new year. As mentioned above, at the December 5th, 6:00 p.m. City Council meeting, City staff will provide Council with an update on the BPMP, and other bicycle projects around town. There will also be a Special Council Workshop in early 2018. Learn more about the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan and sign up for updates at http://tinyurl.com/GoletaBPMP.
Hollister Class I Construction Almost Complete!
The eagerly awaited Hollister Class I Bike Path has been in use for a few weeks and we anticipate the project to be completed by mid-December. Since the bike path extends along Hollister Avenue from Pacific Oaks Road to Ellwood Elementary School, the City is working with COAST (Coalition for Sustainable Transportation) to educate Ellwood students on using the new path.
