The Anchorage Bicycle Plan draft has been released and will receive a public hearing at the Anchorage Planning and Zoning Commission meeting (6:30 – 11:30 PM) on Monday, September 14.
The meeting will take place at the Loussac Library Assembly Chambers. Note that the hearing opportunity for the bike plan will be later in the evening, after the P&Z has conducted most of its business.
The agenda for the Sept. 14 P&Z meeting can be found here:
BCA strongly encourages all bicyclists to consider stopping by and voicing your support for the Plan and any comments or concerns you may have with the Draft. Even if you only have a few minutes and cant wait for the opportunity to testify, you can at the very least sign in with BCA and we can pass on to P&Z know how many bicyclists came by to support the plan.
If we are serious about improving bicycle transportation in Anchorage (and making Anchorage more bicycle-friendly) then it is up to us, the Anchorage bicycling community, to come out to the hearing and show strong support for the Plan. Please come out on the 14th to show your support. The more bicyclists that come out the stronger our voice.
After P&Z reviews and changes the Plan as it sees fit, the Draft Plan will be submitted to AMATS, where it can agree or disagree with changes to the Plan. The Anchorage Assembly will also get an opportunity to review the Pan and approve or disapprove of changes and pass those changes on to AMATS.

We look forward to seeing lots of bicyclists at Loussac on the 14th.
