The city of Glendale is updating the Bicycle Transportation Plan to develop a comprehensive 20-year measurable roadmap that ensures biking is safer, more convenient and enjoyable for everyone.
Community members of all ages are invited to participate in our upcoming workshops in November.
Upcoming Open House events will provide valuable feedback to participants, who will be able to ask questions about the proposed recommendations for enhancing bike safety across Glendale. The Open House schedule is as follows:
- Saturday, Nov. 11 — 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Glendale Sparr Heights Community Center, 1613 Glencoe Way
- Sunday, Nov. 12 — 1p.m. to 3 p.m. at Glendale Adult Recreation Center, 201 E. Colorado St.
Information will be the same at each Open House, so community members may attend either date and/or drop in at their convenience during the two-hour workshops.
Additionally, the Community Development Department is partnering with the city of Glendale’s office of sustainability and will be at the following student/teen workshops held for the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan:
- Teen Workshop: Wednesday, Nov. 8 — 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Glendale Central Library, 222 East Harvard St.
The updated BTP will create a roadmap to build a safe, enjoyable, all-ages, all-abilities bicycle network that connects local destinations within the city and to the region. The plan will also address bicycle parking, programming and education, and new technologies (e.g., e-bikes, shared micro-mobility). The last city of Glendale Bicycle Transportation Plan was released in 2012.
