Hoping to keep residential growth in Mountain View moving at a brisk pace, the City Council gave initial approval for proposals to build more than 1,600 new housing units, despite city staff's concerns about being overwhelmed by development projects.

A simple green-painted strip separated from the roadway by cement blocks, this new lane along Shoreline Boulevard is being hailed as the first protected bike path in Mountain View. For local bike advocates, this new lane represents the first of what they hope will be a wave of new bike-friendly transformations throughout the city.

The Silicon Valley Bike Coalition and Google have partnered to draft "a bicycle master plan to radically improve bicycle infrastructure in the area by emphasizing connections and creating low-stress cycling environments. The idea is to create a network of high-quality bike routes that would cross city lines throughout the northern part of Santa Clara County (North County, in the plan) and seamlessly allow bikes to negotiate current obstacles, such as freeway overpasses and busy arterials."

City Council Meeting: Bike Transportation Plan
Tuesday, July 7, 2015, 6:30pm - 11:30pm
City Hall, 500 Castro, Mountain View, CA

Sound like coming late is a better idea...

"Item 7.1 on the agenda for Mountain View's City Council Meeting on Tuesday, July 7th is the Bicycle Transportation Plan Update. Council members will review, take public input, and provide direction on the Public Draft of the Bicycle Transportation Plan update.

Contact City Council and tell them what you think of the Bike Plan! Best to get comments in by the end of the weekend. Very latest - Monday night if you want to make sure they have a chance to read it.

Or come to the meeting and provide public comments. The city council meeting starts at 6:30, but there are a lot of items on the agenda before the Bike Plan, which will give folks plenty of time to get there. I'm guessing arriving by 8pm will be plenty early."

Update: we had a HUGE win at Tuesday's city council meeting when the Bike Trans Plan Update was discussed. Council directed the Alta Planners (the consultants updating the plan) to:
- include a policy around using protected or buffered bike lanes by default on fast streets - in 35 mph zones and higher
- extend the feasibility study for the Permanente Creek Trail Extension to look at going all the way to Castro School
- add maps to the plan that show bike routes of our neighboring cities of Palo Alto, Los Altos and Sunnyvale

Ride on!!!
