Bicycle Master Plans Proliferate

Both Caltrans and the City of Goleta are in the midst of preparing bicycle master plans for their respective areas. On November 9, Goleta holds two meetings — at UCSB and in Old Town — to receive public input on walking and biking improvements, safe routes to schools, and better transit access. The UCSB meeting takes place at noon at the UCen’s State Street Room; the second meeting, which includes Spanish translation, is at 5:30 p.m. at the Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Avenue.

Caltrans has been taking public comment on its Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan for about half a year. Its questionnaire remains open through November 6 and asks the community about usage and also their views on safety. The questionnaire can be found at
