Latest draft of Alhambra Bike Plan; presentation to City Council postponed *Update

*Updated 3.22.13

The presentation of the Alhambra bike plan to City Council has been postponed so the City Manager and City Council can have more time to review the document. It has not yet been rescheduled, according to Assistant to the City Manager Chris Paulson.

*Originally posted 3.21.13

Alta Planning + Design and the City of Alhambra have released the final draft of the Alhambra Bicycle Master Plan, a proposal to improve cyclist safety in Alhambra. Officials will be presenting the draft to Alhambra City Council on Monday, March 25 at 5:30 p.m. The public will have the opportunity to participate in the meeting and provide feedback about the plan.

The plan aims to increase bikeways and create connections to popular destinations and neighboring cities. It also includes support facilities such as on-street bike parking, storage areas, and bike-rack accommodations on public transit.

Many bike enthusiasts and local residents were disappointed with the first draft of the Bike Master Plan in November, claiming the plan lacked enough designated bike paths and did not include major streets such as Fremont Avenue. Read the new draft below and tell us what you think!

  1. Steps 1 and 2 should be the current City Council doing the following:

    – Eliminate the need for a license to register a bicycle in the city. It’s a non-enforced and archaic law. Get rid of it.

    – Improve the crazy rule that eliminates the ability to have children ride bicycles, tricycles, skateboards and scooters in our city parks and sidewalks.

    Realistically, there are some awesome ways to make our city better and with all the traffic flow on our streets it is hard to imagine how to incorporate bike lanes on some of our main roads but there are other excellent improvements that can be done.
