I. 07-48 Comprehensive Bicylce Transportation Plan (3/3/09)

The City of Raleigh in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Transportation, Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation developed the citywide bicycle plan to create an integrated, seamless transportation framework to facilitate cycling as a viable transportation alternative throughout the City.

The plan features an analysis of current bicycling conditions, standards and guidelines for the development of bicycle facilities, a prioritized list of strategic improvements, integration of policies into city ordinances, and recommendations for programming, operations and funding. Recommendations include the establishment of a permanent Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission that would advise the City Council. The plan also includes specific recommendations for public education, internal training and methods and events that foster the encouragement of bicycling. It also includes suggestions for establishing the City as a certified Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.
