Mayor Campbell steers efforts
to make Cleveland bicycle friendly

After visiting Chicago last spring, Mayor Jane Campbell was inspired to make Cleveland a truly "bicycle-friendly" city by the year 2010. Her plans include establishing a Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee to help make it happen.

The committee's purpose will be to establish citywide policies for bicycle and pedestrian-related improvements and to recommend and review projects that advance those policieswhile ensuring that community concerns and ideas are incorporated into the process. In addition, the committee will help craft the bicycle- and pedestrian-related elements of Cleveland's new comprehensive plan.

The committee will function in an advisory capacity to the City Planning Commission and will work closely with the Department of Public Service and other relevant city departments.

Nine current bike-related initiatives in Cleveland lauded by Mayor Campbell:

1. Detroit-Superior bridge improvements
2. Lakefront BikewayPhase II
3. Euclid Avenue bike lanes
4. Towpath trail extension to downtown
5. Bicycle parking in all city garages and art racks fronting City Hall
6. Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee
7. CityRacks/CitySeats programPhase I
8. RTA's Rack & Roll program for bikes on buses and trains
9. Cleveland bikeway master routes map
