At last October’s Bicycle Plan Implementation Team (BPIT) meeting, we announced that we would soon be releasing an online survey that will allow individuals to prioritize the list of bikeways planned for implementation over the course of the next 5 years. That survey is now available and ready for you to fill out (also available in Spanish). Please use it to submit your preferred street segments for bikeway implementation (and do so by January 3, 2012). Results will be tabulated and presented at the next BPIT meeting, which is scheduled for January 10, 2012, and will feed into next year’s implementation plans. More on the survey below the fold.
An Intro tab provides some instructions and context behind the survey. You’ll also find links to explain the different bikeway facilities to be implemented, including Bike Lanes, Bike Paths, Bike Routes, and Bicycle Friendly Streets (BFS).
The first tab that you should fill out is the “Name” tab. Here, you’ll input your name, email address and zip code.
Tabs to the right of the Intro tab provide access to a series of drop down lists (categorized by geography) of bikeways on the five year implementation plan. The bikeways are identified by street, limits, total distance, and facility type — (for example: 2nd, from Main to Central, 0.38 miles, BFS, etc). We ask that you select facilities in rank order — priority two before priority three before priority four, etc. Priority one facilities were selected months ago as one of the first tasks the BPIT tackled.
All tabs are accompanied by a map on the right hand side of the screen. The map allows you to zoom to an area to view it more closely. Below the map, you can toggle on and off two layers: existing facilities and facilities planned for the next five years. You can also use the search box to find a specific intersection on the map.
The four geographic, region specific tabs include: Central City, Harbor, Valley, Westside. You may prioritize projects in every region, or just one — its up to you. The right most “Westside” tab contains the “Submit” button. Please remember to hit Submit for your response to be recorded. Happy prioritizing!
