Cupertino is planning a network of bicycle-friendly routes along local residential streets throughout the City in order to encourage bicycling. These “bike boulevards” will contain bicycle-friendly traffic-calming features, and are designated and designed to enhance livability and safety for people biking within the neighborhood, especially for those riders who may not feel comfortable traveling along the major streets.
The City has developed preliminary designs for many of the proposed bike boulevards identified in the 2016 Bicycle Transportation Plan. The preliminary designs were updated and revised based on community feedback received at and subsequent to an open house in May 2017 and neighborhood workshops. Implementation of these designs have been separated into neighborhood-specific projects for outreach and construction staging purposes.
- Open House
An open house was held on May 6, 2017 to share the preliminary designs for the city bike boulevards routes around the City.
- Neighborhood Workshops (Round 1)
The City conducted several smaller, more focused public meetings within the bike boulevard neighborhoods between September and December 2017. The goal of these workshops was to gather further comments and concerns on the preliminary designs from the residents living along or near the proposed bike boulevard routes.
- City Council
After concluding the focused neighborhood public workshops in December 2017, City staff presented an update on the project to City Council as a study session on February 6, 2018. The live presentation included a summary of each of the seven neighborhood workshops, highlighting the initial recommendations, comments received, and revised recommendations based on community feedback.
