Walnut Creek Bicycle Plan Public Hearing

From EBBC:

Walnut Creek creek has finished a draft of its first ever Bicycle Plan and takes it to City Council and a public hearing on August 2, 2011. If you live, work or ride in Walnut Creek, this is a great opportunity learn more about the City’s plans to become more bike-friendly. The Bicycle Plan incorporates new bike lanes and bikeways that were proposed in the General Plan, and provides specific recommendations to promote bicycling as a desirable alternative to driving. Specifically, the Bicycle Plan establishes goals, policies, implementation actions, and priorities for the development of much needed bicycle facilities throughout the city of Walnut Creek.
