Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Update

Since the adoption of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) in March 2017, the Town has made substantial progress in implementing the Plan’s priorities. The Town is now updating the BPMP to reflect the progress made so far, and to clearly identify the priorities for the future. This update is an important step in assuring the Connect Los Gatos program’s long-term success.

Purpose 

The goal of this BPMP update is to create a platform for the public, commissioners, and staff to use to gain an understanding of current, past, and future pedestrian and cyclist improvement projects. Updating the Town’s BPMP will better reflect the Connect Los Gatos Projects and ensure that there is consistency between the town’s current programs and the towns long range goals. It will also provide meaningful context to support future funding opportunities and decision making. The update will also introduce an online interactive map and updated project tables. 

Draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Update

At the August 13 meeting, the Complete Streets and Transportation Commission (CSTC) reviewed the draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP) update. The focused effort only updated Chapter 4, Network Recommendations and Project Prioritization.

One exciting product from the update is an online platform that includes interactive maps and project information. The Commission expressed support for the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan Update and commented on the design of the online Story Map. Staff plans to present the draft update for the Town Council’s consideration at its September 1, 2020 meeting.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan 

In April 2016, the Los Gatos Town Council approved a consultant services agreement with Placeworks, a planning and mobility consulting firm, to prepare the Town’s first Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP).  Placeworks and Town staff worked closely with the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Commission (BPAC) on the Master Plan which will provide the Town with a roadmap for enhancing bicycle and pedestrian mobility throughout the Town by identifying and prioritizing projects, policies and programs that will help make Los Gatos a more comfortable place to bike and walk.
