New Bike Parking Ordinance ADOPTED
The City of Oakland’s Community & Economic Development Agency adopted the Bicycle Parking ordinance in summer 2008 with WOBO’s enthusiastic support. It will require bicycle parking for various types of development. WOBO members attended all of the meetings and developed unanimous support from City Council which passed it with total consensus.
According to the City of Oakland, “Adoption of a bicycle parking ordinance (has been) a priority recommendation in the recently approved Bicycle Master Plan (2007), as well as the prior bike plan approved in 1999.
The ordinance addresses bicycle racks, lockers, cages and showers, and how these facilities would be included in future development.”
