Submit comments on the Transportation Agency of Monterey County’s draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan. Kaki Cheung, TAMC Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator, states: “The Draft Plan is an important document guiding bicycle and pedestrian planning in Monterey County for years to come. It identifies regionally significant bicycle projects and highlights areas for pedestrian improvements, which will assist in prioritizing funding and facilitating implementation of a comprehensive countywide network.”
Transportation Agency for Monterey County released the 2011 Draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, a 166-page document, in May. TAMC urges public feedback! As reported June 10 by Larry Parsons in the Monterey County Herald, Monterey County seeks bike plan input, that public input is very important.
Seaside leads in bike commuters
As Parsons reported, the Draft Master Plan shows that Seaside has the largest percentage of bike commuters in the county (not surprising to cyclists like Seaside resident Katie Stubbendick–see Stubbendick’s comment on a story in May’s Monterey County Weekly special bike issue).
Top 10 projects
What’s in the plan? Excerpted below is the table of contents (minus figures and tables–which are truly fascinating to us bike lovers). Surely there is something here that will move you to contact TAMC and share your ideas and support!
