TMP Bicycle and Pedestrian Workgroup Committee
The workgroup was formed following the first public meeting (October 23, 2003) A total of 20 community representatives were selected to serve on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Workgroup Committee and assist staff in refining elements of the Bicycle and Pedestrian System Plans. The Committee convened on three consecutive Wednesday evenings in fall 2002. The date and topic of each meeting session is outlined as follows:
The TMP Bike and Pedestrian workgroup assisted staff to evaluate current programs and propose new ideas on how the city can better address the elements necessary to provide a successful bike and pedestrian system. Specifically, the committee worked on the following:
The workgroup sessions offered the opportunity for information exchange. Staff informed workgroup members of current practices and requested input on how to achieve the overall goals and objectives of the Bike and Pedestrian System plans.
The focus areas are comprised of five E's (Engineering, Education, Enforcement, Encouragement and Evaluation) which are addressed through facility enhancements and maintenance, programs and overall trends.
A task for members of the TMP Update bike and pedestrian workgroup was to ride/walk an existing route, complete a survey to rate the bikeability/walkability of the route, and discuss the barriers they encountered on their trip. Staff utilized the completed Bikeability Survey (155.91 KB) and Walkability Survey (193.12 KB) information obtained from specific routes as well as general community feedback to identify systematic Barriers to Bicycling/Walking in Boulder (356.86 KB).
The barriers and top bicycle and pedestrian issues identified during the GO Walk and Bike Transportation in Boulder public meeting were reviewed by staff to develop a refined set of bicycle and pedestrian TMP Update Plan Objectives and Action Strategies (476.52 KB) aimed to achieve each objective.
