Background
 
In 2011, the East Palo Alto Bicycle Transportation Plan was created to reflect the goals and policies of the 1999 General Plan and the Bay Access Master Plan. At the time of adoption the Bicycle Transportation Plan was visionary, as it envisioned improving the over-all health of the community through improved air-quality and by helping people stay physically fit. It embraced a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and it advocated for connectivity of schools with residential areas, shoppers with businesses, and commuters to employment centers.

Through the current plan update we are encouraging the public to consider identifying needs and challenges via surveys and public meetings in order to upgrade or construct new, safe, and efficient bicycle facilities, and to encourage and increase both local and regional bicycle ridership for East Palo Alto.
