Meeting was fully attended by all commissioners, staff along with a number of community members.
Robert McCoy and Jerry Tallinger of the Cupertino Public Safety Commission presented an overview of city’s efforts to encourage walking and cycling by the student community and to announce – per the City Mananger’s direction – that the program be handed over to the BP commission. The committee’s goal has been to stimulate walking and cycling through the Boltage and Walk-One-Week programs. It was reported that during these programs, the number of students walking or biking can reach 10 – 12% of the student population. It wasn’t clear how many of those rode their bikes. The committee measures riding/walking participation 2X/year over a three day period by asking teachers to poll their students in the classroom how they traveled to school.
Staff Report – David Stillman reported that Cupertino was awarded the Bronze level by the League of Biking. The staff had hoped for a higher rating and seemed dismayed at the award level.
There was no report on the status or scheduled of the remaining BP projects for FY 15-16.
Erik Lindstrom presented the latest draft of potential BP projects. The draft can be found at this link. Xx.
