Deadline for public comments to SDOT is this Friday, July 26.
Seattle Bike Master Plan Update
West Seattle Bike Connections submitted group comments last December. We met twice as a group with SDOT staff, participated in the public workshops, and just submitted detailed comments and a “report card” on the changes made in the June 2013 draft compared with the December 2012 draft.
SDOT bike planners, traffic engineers, and their planning consultants at Alta are working hard to make this a world-class plan for bicycle transportation. We appreciate their good work. But they don’t know every aspect of the city, and that’s where we come in. If you send your own comments on areas important to you, we will give West Seattle a strong voice in this important planning and policy document.
A plan does not guarantee that the planned improvements and programs will be funded, but if something is not included in the plan, it will be much less likely to ever be budgeted by the Mayor, funded by City Council, or implemented by SDOT.
