Update of the City of Piedmont's 2014 Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan, with an additional focus on general traffic safety.
About the Project
Piedmont’s original Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP) was adopted in November 2014. The PBMP identified a set of projects and other recommendations to make walking and biking in Piedmont safer, easier and more popular.
The new plan—Piedmont Safer Streets—will evaluate the old recommendations and develop new ones to address emerging community needs, concerns and expectations. Importantly, the new plan will also examine the community’s broader traffic safety concerns, not just those directly related to walking and biking.
October 2021 update
The public comment period for the draft Piedmont Safer Streets Plan was open for five weeks, from July 19 to August 23, 2021. During that time, we received 46 emails and one phone call with comments from the public.
We gave serious consideration to all the comments received, and we have revised the plan to incorporate the comments as appropriate. The revised draft plan will be presented on October 7, 2021 to the City's Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee and, later (likely in November), to the City Council.
