The function of the Bicycle Pedestrian Commission is to review, monitor and make recommendations regarding City transportation matters including but not limited to bicycle and pedestrian traffic, parking, education and recreation within Cupertino (also see Municipal Code 2.92.080 Powers and Functions). In July 2015 the Commission voted unanimously to establish a mission statement including measurable objectives to be achieved by the end of 2025. This will guide the Commission’s priorities and will be central to defining the upcoming 2016 Bicycle plan.
The objectives are as follows:
- Be one of the top 5 cities in California for biking and walking and achieve Gold status from the League of American Bicyclists.
- Expand middle and high school student bicycle and pedestrian trips to 40% of total school commutes.
- Expand intra-city trips for errands and leisure by adults and seniors via bicycle/walking to 20% of trips.
- Expand resident bicycle/pedestrian commuting to major Cupertino employers and De Anza College to 15% of total trips.
The Commission consists of five members appointed by the City Council to four-year overlapping terms. None shall be officials or employees of the City nor cohabit with, as defined by law, nor be related by blood or marriage to, any member of the committee, the City Manager or the staff person or persons assigned to the Commission. All members are City of Cupertino residents.
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the every month at 7 p.m. in City Hall, Conference Room C. For more information, call staff liaison David Stillman at 408.777.3249.
