Industrial Way Bike Lane Alternatives Subject of Community Working Group Meeting
Redwood City, CA - September 5 , 2006 -
Earlier this year, a group of interested community members came together with City staff to form the Redwood City Community Working Group for Bicycle & Pedestrian Issues. The ongoing objective of this group is to review and work on a variety of bicycle and pedestrian related topics, make recommendations, and bring a renewed City focus to these issues.
The working group has met a number of times, and has now scheduled a community information workshop/meeting to hear about and discuss a proposal to add bike lanes on Industrial Way in Redwood City. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday September 13th, 2006 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM, at Redwood High School, 1968 Old County Road, Redwood City.
Industrial Way in Redwood City is scheduled to be repaved and re-striped, offering an opportunity to continue the bike lanes that exist on the San Carlos segment of that roadway, into Redwood City. At the September 13th workshop, staff from Redwood City’s Community Development Services department will present two options to add bike lanes to both sides of Industrial Road between the San Carlos border and Whipple Avenue in Redwood City.
During the first portion of the meeting, community members will have the opportunity to review the proposed plans and talk with other interested community members and City staff. This open review period will be followed by the presentation by the City Traffic Engineer, questions and answers, and a review and agreement on the next steps in this process. More information from City staff is available by calling (650) 780-7238.
The alternative plans can be viewed on-line prior to the meeting. Comments, questions, and suggestions can be sent to the Community Working Group via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
