Final Master Plan draft available

The final draft of Concord’s new Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to Transit Master Plan is now available to the public:  main document, appendices, and design guidelines.

It will now go through its last three venues for review:

  1. Final meeting of the Plan Advisory Committee this Monday, July 25 at 5:30pm in the Permit Center Conference Room.
  2. Planning Commission on Wednesday, August 3 at 6:30pm in the City Council chamber.
  3. City Council on Tuesday, September 27 at 5:30pm in the City Council chamber. Except in the unlikely event of serious objections by a Councilmember, Council will officially adopt the Master Plan as City policy.

These meetings are listed on the public Bike Concord calendar.

Along with other community organizations and members of the public, Bike Concord and our partner Bike East Bay have been participating extensively in the Master Plan process for the past year and a half. We have clear targets for what we want to see in the final Plan in order to realize our mission of making bicycling a safe, convenient, and mainstream part of Concord’s transportation system. We submitted and discussed with staff an extensive list of proposed changes to the previous public draft which was released in April.  Bike Concord’s Advocacy Committee and Bike East Bay will be meeting this Sunday morning, July 24, to discuss this final draft and determine our position on it.  If you would like to join that meeting, please email

Background on the Master Plan process from Bike Concord’s point of view is available on this blog.
