January 30th, 2014
the online plan is really fun — there's a lot to look at here
The Newport Beach Bicycle Master Plan Oversight Committee will meet at 5 p.m. Monday in the Community Room at the Civic Center at 100 Civic Center Drive.
The meeting will include a Bicycle Master Plan update, an update from police and discussion of a Draft Bikeways Network, according to the agenda.
The Draft Bikeways Network is a “key component of the master plan details the proposed bicycle network and possible improvements,” according to an email from Brad Sommers, an assistant city engineer.
“As this includes a lot of information (traditionally shown on a very busy exhibit), the project team has developed an interactive website where you can view draft recommendations for bikeway facilities including off-street bikeways, on-street bike lanes, bike routes, and bike boulevards,” he wrote.
Members of the community may go to the plan online, review descriptions of recommendations and indicate support and leave comments, he said.
“The comments will help with development of the master plan while public ‘support’ will help prioritize projects in the master plan,” he wrote.
