Richmond Bicycle Master Plan and Pedestrian Plan Project Wrap up by Kieron Slaughter, Richmond Planning Dept:

I would like to take a moment to congratulate the project team for successfully completing the Bicycle Master Plan, Pedestrian Plan and the Mitigated Negative Deceleration. Notwithstanding some of the comments from some of the public and a few elected officials at the last City Council Meeting, I’m confident that we conducted the process in a legal, open and transparent manner, and did everything within our power and budgetary constraints to solicit public participation. As was stated at the November 1, 2011 City Council meeting, this places Richmond on pace with other neighboring cities that value and encourage bicycle and pedestrian activity and realize the benefits of a robust Bicycle and Pedestrian infrastructure. We’re also excited about the ability to leverage grant funding as a result of having both plans approved. Once again, job well done and the last two and a half years have been a valuable learning experience.

Thank you Kieron for making this happen!!
