Downtown Implementation Plan to include bike lanes

Lowell Brown of the DRC wrote an article yesterday about a contentious parking-ordinance modification for downtown, and his article included a bike-lane reference that grabbed our attention.

The downtown implementation plan is expected to include recommendations for parking, architectural design, land use, bicycle lanes, parks and open space, among other things.

Once the Jacobs Group consultant presents the plan in early April, the city council will vote to approve the plan, and hopefully we’ll see commitment to action.

The city flyer for this meeting lists these topics:

  • parking
  • Complete streets
  • Parks and outdoor venues
  • Solid waste removal
  • Review the Form Based Code and its principles for downtown growth

If you support the idea of bike lanes downtown, especially with close proximity to the train station, you can still give input.  This Thursday there is one last chance for public input regarding the plan:
