Updating Portland's Bike Parking Code
presented by Sarah Figliozzi and Liz Hormann
End-of-trip facilities, like bicycle parking, are a key component to support the use of bicycles for transportation. The Portland Bicycle Plan calls for bicycling to account for 25 percent of all trips by 2030. Data shows that people are significantly less likely to use a bicycle if they don’t have a safe place to lock it at the end of their trip.
Yet Portland’s bicycle parking code hasn’t been updated in 20 years. With changes in technology, design and the way people get around town over the past two decades, it’s time for a refresh. You can review the Discussion Draft of the Bicycle Parking Code Update Project and provide your feed back via the Bicycle Code Online Survey (the comment period is open through Oct. 1, 2018). And you can also hear from project staff in person and ask your own questions at this session - but make sure you bring your lunch!
Sign up here to join the Bike Lunch and Learn mailing list - only one or two e-mails a month, and we don't share your info.
