Cupertino Bicycle Pedestrian Commission meeting
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The function of the Bicycle Pedestrian Commission is to review, monitor and make recommendations regarding City transportation matters including but not limited to bicycle and pedestrian traffic, parking, education and recreation within Cupertino. In July 2015 the Commission voted unanimously to establish a mission statement including measurable objectives to be achieved by the end of 2025. Per that work, the following goals are supposed to guide the Commission’s priorities:
- Be one of the top 5 cities in California for biking and walking and achieve Gold status from the League of American Bicyclists.
- Expand middle and high school student bicycle and pedestrian trips to 40% of total school commutes.
- Expand intra-city trips for errands and leisure by adults and seniors via bicycle/walking to 20% of trips.
- Expand resident bicycle/pedestrian commuting to major Cupertino employers and De Anza College to 15% of total trips.
Commissioners are appointed by the City Council, and do not need to meet any specific criteria for personal biking, walking or use of alternative transportation or any advocacy for biking, walking or use of alternative transportation.
The monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 7pm. They usually last approximately two hours. Residents are allowed to speak on general matters for 3 minutes during a meeting, and on specific agenda items for 3 minutes.
