  1. Thanks for providing the agenda and links to the reports. What appears to be missing from the Planning Context document is much reference or acknowledgement of the Priority List in the 2014 PBMP. Strangely, the 2014 Priority List was created and then largely ignored by staff and in this document. This current document at a minimum should revisit the Priority List and comment on the status of each problem intersection, and describe the progress, or lack thereof, on each identified intersection. There seems to be a lot of reinventing the wheel, and not building on what’s previously been done. I serve on the CIP Committee, and I have noted this same problem.

  2. Mike makes good points. This whole pedestrian/bicycle plan review is driven by a statutory requirement to review implementation of the city’s 2014 PB Master Plan. As many of the committee members were not living in Piedmont at the time it would seem appropriate to give them a public briefing on the Master Plan.

    Then there is the question of the priority list which obviously should be discussed by the committee. Reading the tea leaves here, there seems to be an intent to subsume bicycle improvements to pedestrian improvements in a new Pedestrian Safe Streets program.
