City Seeks Participants for Community Working Group on Bicycle/Pedestrian Issues

Redwood City, CA - March 14 , 2006 - To help bring a renewed focus to the issues involving local bicycle and pedestrian interests, Redwood City is forming a Community Working Group on Bicycle/Pedestrian Issues. (click here to go right to the application information)

The purpose of this community-based group will be to review and work on a variety of bicycle and pedestrian related topics, including identifying and developing ‘safe routes’ to school, transit, and workplace, grant development, and recommended City capital improvement projects that address bicycle and pedestrian issues. Portions of the work conducted by this group will fold into the City’s General Plan update now underway.

Mayor Barbara Pierce notes that this group’s charge will be to bring “…a new base of knowledge, background, experience, and passion to the City’s work on bicycle and pedestrian issues. We need the community’s direct involvement on how we address these short- and long-range issues as we work together to meet the community’s needs.”

The group is expected to consist of up to 20 people who will meet periodically to move forward with this task, with the assistance of City planning and engineering staff.

Members of the Redwood City community – whether bicyclists, pedestrians, or others - are encouraged to submit an application indicating their interest. The short application form and more information on the Community Working Group on Bicycle/Pedestrian Issues are available online, or by request at 780-7238. The City asks all interested people to respond by March 31st. The initial meeting is expected to take place in late April or early May.
