Bicycle Advisory Commission History:
Soon after adopting its first Bicycle Master Plan in March 2011, the Coronado City Council agreed to form a Bicycle Advisory Committee to help implement a number of projects and goals outlined in the plan.
The Bicycle Master Plan establishes the types of bikeways that should be created in Coronado and integrated into the existing regional system. It also provides the approach the City should take in implementing its goals.
The Master Plan includes a list of proposed projects, from bike lanes to routes, around Coronado and the costs for each. For example, the plan recommends the installation of 1.1 miles of Class 2 Bike Lanes along Glorietta Boulevard from Tenth to Fifth streets that would more formally connect Class 1 Bike Paths on either end.
Currently, the City has a mix of bikeways in town. Class 1 Bike Paths are for the exclusive use of bicyclists and pedestrians. Class 2 Bike Lanes provide a striped lane for one-way bike travel on a roadway. Class 3 Bike Routes provide for shared use of roads with posted signs and/or painted roadways.
Coronado's Master Plan shows 11.86 miles of existing bikeways and proposes 12 more. The City Council formed the Bicycle Advisory Committee, a permanent group of interested and dedicated residents, in September 2011 to advise the City and staff on bicycle-related matters, coordinate and host bicycle education programs and events, and evaluate the City's efforts in implementing the Bicycle Master Plan.
City officials want the Committee to focus on education and enforcement of the rules of the road, not only for children but adults as well. In a city that is one of San Diego County's most bicycle friendly environments with its mostly flat terrain, making sure bicyclists of all ages adhere to the same rules is important. The committee consists of seven members who serve three-year terms, with an optional appointment to a second term, and meets monthly.
The City hopes to continue to attract committee members with a range of bicycle-riding experience, and is particularly interested in those with grant-writing experience. City officials believe having a Bicycle Advisory Committee will prove effective in receiving critical grants to carry out the goals of the Master Plan as such committees often are seen as a show of support not only by the City but by residents as well.
For information about serving on the Bicycle Advisory Committee, call the City Clerk's Office at (619) 522-7320.
In October 2013, the City of Coronado was designated a Silver-Level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists.
