Alhambra city staff to recommend creation of bike master plan

City staff at Monday night's Alhambra City Council meeting will request a contract that would develop a bike master plan. Staff will request that City Council appropriates $19,995 for the design and development of the plan and request to award a contract to Alta Planning + Design. What do you think?

Do you think the city should support a master bike plan?

Alhambra City Council will also present commendations for the AYSO Region 60 Alhambra/Monterey Park girls soccer team, which won the GU14 League Championship, and for Dr. David Snyder for his donation of his stamp collection to the Alhambra Civic Library.

City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.

    A Master Bike Plan will allow the city to obtain funds from Federal and State sources. It provides for long range planning to provide safe biking options for the residents of Alhambra. Bike paths can take on many forms depending on the traffic and available street space. Sharrows, or shared traffic lanes, might work for the downtown areas, dedicated bike lanes on wider streets such as Morengo and posting of bike routes with signs will raise the public awareness that our streets can be shared safely with bicycle and cars. It is a long process and is working currently in many cities across America. This is the first step and public imput will be welcomed by Alta during the design phase. Please watch the Source for announcements of upcoming meetings with Alta and participate in the process.

  2. “Bike Master Plan”

    Someone want to explain to me exactly what that means? Is it a dedicated bike path or is just some painted lines on the sides of streets with a picture of a bike on it?

    In a perfect world with plenty of funds, a dedicated path for bikes AND joggers would be kinda fun, but I dont think that will happen.

    Well, on second thought, we have some very nice parks for us joggers, but good luck with the bike path thing.

    I see crazy drivers every day in this city and not enough police officers writing tickets for speeding. Riding a bike around this town is downright dangerous at this time.
