E-bike Policy on Paved Pathways

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 9/24/2019


No earlier than 10:30 a.m., the Board will conduct a hearing about an ordinance amending Marin County Code relating to the use of electric bicycles and other vehicles on County-maintained property, not including Marin County Open Space District properties. The amendments, which would align the County with statewide e-bike policy, would only pertain to rules for paved multiuse paths such as the Mill Valley/Sausalito Path, the Corte Madera Creek Path, and the Pacheco Path. Parks' motivation is to accommodate changes in modes of transportation, alleviate road congestion, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and increase opportunities for exercise. The Marin County Parks and Open Space Commission recommended proposed policy changes on e-bikes at its March 21 meeting, and the first reading of the ordinance amendment took place September 17. 


The Board conducted the hearing and adopted the ordinance amendments.
