Many exciting things are happening in Oakland, and WOBO’s got you covered on all the details.
At our NACTO Cities for Cycling VIP Reception on April 10, 2014, Oakland decision makers heard from top transportation professionals from Boston, New York City, San Francisco and Chicago on how these cities are transforming their streets for walking and bicycling and received a great dose of momentum to do the same here in Oakland when Caltrans Director Malcolm Dougherty announced that Caltrans is endorsing the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide, the new bible of bikeway planning.
With the success of our VIP Reception and the 2-day Road Show involving Oakland city staff and elected officials, Oakland is ready to start redesigning your streets with real bikeways that are safe, comfortable, inviting and yes, fun to ride.
We’re also excited to announce that the Public Safety Committee unanimously approved the Bike and Pedestrian Anti Harassment Ordinance introduced by Councilmember Libby Schaaf and supported by WOBO. The full Council will vote on this ordinance’s approval at their next meeting on April 22nd.
