On Tuesday, September 20th, Mountain View City Council will be voting on
whether Anton Development should install bike lanes on Escuela Avenue from
Latham Street to California Avenue.
This road is currently too dangerous for most people to feel comfortable
riding on. Installing bike lanes will make it possible...
The moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived - the Castro Street redesign has been released!! Please find the agenda here:
Agenda (Item 3.1): legistar1.granicus.com/mountai...
You will find also an overview of the design in "Attachment 2 - Overall Castro Street Improvement," in the Agenda above.
Details about the design are in the Study Session Memo, also in the Agenda above.
City staff will present the design and take public comments at a study session at 5pm Tuesday, February 9th in Council Chambers at City Hall (500 Castro Street). Bring a middle school student, and wear green in solidarity!!
Safe Mountain View will hold a meet-up outside City Hall at 4:30 for supporters to band together before the study session. RSVP: www.eventbrite.com/e/meet-up-s...
If you can’t make it to the study session, please write a letter of support to City Council:
Some things we LOVE about this design are:
- protected bike lanes
- green paint
- safety islands at some of the intersections
- the elimination of the slip lane at Miramonte
- bulb outs to shorten the crossing distance for people walking across the street
Good news! Word has it Mountain View city Staff has added protected bike lanes to the list of improvements they are proposing for Castro Street in front of Graham Middle School. This is great for the students' commute to school! The design is scheduled to be released on February 5th.
