Inventory of Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans for Monterey County and all of California

Headsup for all of California

plus additional details for Monterey County
The California Bicycle Coalition (AKA CalBike) has a new tool in their toolbox. To help in their work of improving infrastructure for people who bike in California, they’re compiling a statewide Bike and Pedestrian Plan Inventory.

The inventory will be a living document, and CalBike needs the help of people all over California who can provide new or updated information about any bike-ped plans in their city or county. Wherever you live in California, check to see if info for your area is accurate, complete, and up-to-date: http://www.calbike.org/bike_ped_plan_inventory Then email CalBike with any input. Learn more on the CalBike blog, 8/17/17: “How Many California Cities and Counties have a Bike or Pedestrian Plan?”

Monterey County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans

Included in Bicycling Monterey’s 32-section “DIRECTORY: Monterey County Bicycling Resources / Bike Community Leaders, in section 11, are Bicycle and Pedestrian Plans, i.e., the countywide plan from Transportation Agency for Monterey County, and plans from the following local cities: Marina, Monterey, Salinas, and Seaside.

In addition to emailing CalBike, if you have new or updated information about Monterey County’s plans, contact Bicycling Monterey also, to help keep this site’s directory current.

Hey, what are Class IV Bikeways?

Mentioned in Cal Bike’s 8/17/17 blog post are Class IV bikeways—also called “protected bike lanes.” To learn more about those, see Protected Bike Lanes / Class 4 Separated Bikeways / Cycle Tracks.

How else can you help?

As CalBike’s 8/17/17 post notes, “Robust planning that is informed by local residents is critical for developing good, effective projects that people will embrace and use once they are built.”

One way to be part of that planning is to attend your city or county’s planning meetings. Among these in Monterey County are the Transportation Agency for Monterey County’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Advisory Committee meetings.

For more ideas, see “Bicycling Advocacy: What you can do,” or just phone me.

Bicycling Monterey is pleased to be a
local ally of the California Bicycle Coalition.
