This month's BWC meeting is cancelled in hopes that you'll attend one (or all) of the following events this month. Our next BWC meeting is 6:30pm Thursday, April 9 in the Las Trampas Room of the downtown Public Library.
You can help our city improve by attending these events and speaking for safer bicycling in Walnut Creek:
3/10- Tuesday 10am - Walking Tour with Mayor Simmons around the West Downtown. RSVP here.
3/10 Tuesday 7pm - Conversation with Mayor Simmons. Open-ended question and answer session. Downtown Public Library.
3/14 Saturday 1pm - Walking Tour with Mayor Simmons around the West Downtown. RSVP here.
3/19 Thursday 7pm - Joint Transportation and Planning Commission Meeting to discuss the West Downtown Specific Plan. City Hall 3rd Floor Conference Room.
Bring your family, neighbors and friends to these events. Let's really show the city council and commissions that bicyclists are really a diverse group but we all want safety. Ask the city to provide family-friendly bicycle routes to schools, downtown, local grocery stores and businesses.
If You Can't attend any meeting about the West Downtown Specific Plan...
Please do your part by sending a simple message to the people below. Tell them who you are, why you bike, and what you want to see from this plan. In brief, we would like to see streets that are safe enough for ALL AGES and ABILITIES to bike. In particular:
- protected bikeways on Olympic, Mt. Diablo, and California
- inclusion of the Olympic Corridor Connection Study
- support for the bridge over Ygnacio Valley Rd.
- more bike lockers
- separation of bike parking requirements from car parking
- streets designed for slow traffic through the neighborhoods
