DescriptionThe City of San Carlos wants to build a transportation system that provides more options to walk and bike, whether it's to go to school, commute to work, access the regional trail system or run everyday errands. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan process is underway to identify and prioritize new bikeways, walkways, trails, and pedestrian enhancements throughout San Carlos.
Draft recommendations for pedestrian and bicycle network improvements are available for review and comment through our community input map at the following link Community Input Map.
Please join us on Wednesday, October 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the San Carlos Library, 610 Elm Street for a Community Workshop to review possible bike and pedestrian safety improvements.
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan process includes several phases, including:
• Fall 2018: Gather data about existing conditions for people walking and biking and review past studies and plans.
• Winter 2018/2019: Conduct a needs analysis that addresses the safety and comfort of the bicycle and pedestrian network and identifies where people want to walk and bike.
• Spring/Summer 2019: Identify potential policies, new infrastructure improvements and programs (like Safe Routes to School) that can help make biking and walking more comfortable for San Carlos’ residents and visitors.
• Fall 2019: Prioritize proposed improvements and develop a strategy to implement the plan, including grant funding opportunities for projects and programs, and other things the City can do.
• Public outreach will be ongoing throughout the project, including both participation in other City events and workshops held to gather input on key products.
