After going more than 17 months without a meeting, the City of Sturgeon Bay Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board met at City Hall on Monday afternoon to discuss upcoming plans for the following year.
First and foremost, the application for renewal of the bronze-level status as a “Bicycle-friendly community” will need to be submitted by September 1. Four concerned residents emphasized the importance for the city to accommodate bicyclists, promote bike safety, and for the board to continue as an independent committee.
Chair Kirsten Reeths reassured those in attendance that the board would remain intact. It will only funnel recommendations through the Parking & Traffic Committee to get approved by the Sturgeon Bay Common Council.
Discussion during the 70-minute meeting covered bringing the Bike Rodeo back on May 7, 2022, at Market Square, as well as placing more bike racks throughout the city for people to utilize. The Bike Rodeo would be coordinated with Sturgeon Bay Elementary Schools and the Sturgeon Bay Police Department. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board will meet again on Monday, August 2.
