Comprehensive Pedestrian & Bicycle Master Plan Overview
The City was awarded a grant by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) for development of a Comprehensive Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan (Plan). The goal of the Plan is to create a safe, comfortable and pedestrian friendly environment which will encourage people of all ages to bike or walk. The Plan will be consistent with the City's Complete Streets Policy adopted in January 2013, the Belmont-Redwood Shores Safe Routes to School Study prepared in 2012, the CCAG Congestion Management Plan prepared in 2011, the San Mateo County Comprehensive Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan prepared in 2011 and the Ralston Corridor Study approved in August 2014.
The major steps in the development of the Plan include:
- Assessment of existing conditions including bicycle and pedestrian counts, inventory of current pedestrian and bicycle facilities and review of collision history involving pedestrian and bicycles in the City.
- Public outreach including an online resident survey, establishment of a stakeholder advisory group and public meetings.
- Identification of priority pedestrian and bicycle projects based on identified needs.
