Alameda County Measure B Steering Committee Meeting

11:56 PM PST on November 6, 2011

From EBBC:

Now is our opportunity to secure full funding for the Countywide Bicycle Plan and Pedestrian Plan. The East Bay Bicycle Coalition is asking for up to 20% of Measure B funds to be committed to bike/ped projects as part of the Measure B Reauthorization Your help in November-December is needed to get us there.

Public polling supports bike/ped projects, and many of the Steering Committee members do as well, including Kris Worthington of Berkeley, Ruth Atkins of Emeryville, Keith Carson (County Supervisor), Nate Miley (County Supervisor) and Mark Green of Union City as well is supportive of bike/ped projects such as the East Bay Greenway. However, there are many competing demands, including freeways and BART extensions that could eat up most of the money. Your voice can make a huge difference.

    • Email your Steering Committee representative and tell them you want to fully fund the Countywide Bicycle & Pedestrian Plans in Measure B.
    • Attend the November 17 meeting of the Steering Committee and join other EBBC members as we speak up for our fair share of funding.Measure B Reauthorization Steering Committee MeetingThursday, November 1712noon-3:00pmAlameda CTC offices, 1333 Broadway, Suite 300Downtown Oakland at 14th & Broadway

The Measure B reauthorization could potentially bring in $7.7 billion (billion) in new transportation dollars. Initial cost estimates for the projects in the Countywide Bicycle & Pedestrian Plans range up to $3 billion to complete. Historically, bike/ped projects have been short-changed and received a small percentage of funds. With a strong voice, we can change that and help Alameda County complete its bikeway network through your neighborhood. Can you help?
