From Kevin on the Sunnyvale, California BPAC:
Here are three bike-related events that may be worthy of your attention.
- First, on Tuesday March 15 there is a joint council/BPAC study session titled Update and Status of the City’s Bicycle Program and Upcoming Projects. It will be in the West Conference Room at City Hall and starts at 5:30 pm. The council meeting calendar had shown it starting at 6:00, but hopefully the earlier start will allow more time for public comments (it has to end by 7:00 for the regular council meeting).
- Second, on Wednesday March 16 the Department of Public Safety will host a public discussion to address the many complaints of safety hazards experienced by student cyclists on Mary Avenue. It starts at 6:00 pm at Homestead High School (no other information available, but it shouldn’t be hard to find).
- Third, the BPAC meeting will take place on Thursday March 17 at 6:30 pm in the West Conference Room in City Hall. The agenda hasn’t been published yet, but should include a review of requirements to qualify as a League of American Bicyclists Silver Level bicycle friendly community (we are currently at the Bronze Level); a recommendation for use of our annual TDA funding; and a status update of all current bike/ped projects. All other non-agenda topics may be brought up during the Oral Communications section.
Feel free to attend any or all of these and let us know what you think!
