The past year for Cupertino and its surrounding communities has seen some major changes as we continue to emerge from the pandemic.

Locally in Cupertino, there have been some serious issues which have taken attention away from quality of life improvements such as biking and walking infrastructure. These included implementing the Civil Grand Jury report results, revamping the failed and overdue Housing Element, and contending with an enormous budget shortfall compared to previous years.

This doesn’t mean that progress has not been made, however. Below are some updates on what’s happened in the past year in Cupertino and its close communities–and what we hope will happen in the coming years to make local walking and biking safer and easier to do. Thank you to everyone who emailed, spoke at Council meetings, came to BPC Commission or planning meetings, signed petitions, and/or supported walking and biking improvements locally! Together, we are making a difference.

As always, about every month, we’ll publish our newsletter to keep you updated on what’s happening locally as well as give you great ideas for rides and hikes. Look for it in your mailbox, or sign up here to get it sent to you.

We wish every reader a happy and healthy 2024!
