County of Marin - News Releases - Biker-Pedestrian Workshop

For Immediate Release
October 20, 2014

Feedback from Cyclists, Pedestrians Wanted

Workshop set for October 23 about plans for Larkspur, Greenbrae, Kentfield

San Rafael, CA – County of Marin and City of Larkspur staff who are focused on improving nonmotorized transportation would like to tap the knowledge of cyclists and walkers who use pathways and streets to get around in the lower Ross Valley.

Bicycle and pedestrian master plans throughout Marin are being updated, and a public workshop is set for Thursday, October 23, to go over plans in Larkspur, Greenbrae and Kentfield.

The Marin County Department of Public Works (DPW) is partnering with the City of Larkspur to host the workshop to share information about existing facilities and plans for future routes. It will be a prime opportunity for cyclists and walkers to identify spots where new facilities are needed most.

“This is one in a series of meetings to help us update the countywide master plan,” said Dan Dawson, Principal Transportation Planner for County DPW. “We’d like to hear from anyone who regularly uses nonmotorized power to get through the Sir Francis Drake Boulevard corridor along Corte Madera Creek between the bay and the Town of Ross.

After meetings for other areas have taken place, gathered information from the public will be incorporated into a draft master plan to be presented to the Marin County Board of Supervisors in late 2015, Dawson said.

Help improve walking and bicycling in Marin the lower Ross Valley by attending the workshop from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Larkspur City Council Chamber, 400 Magnolia Avenue in Larkspur. For more information, contact Dawson at ddawson@marincounty.org or 415-473-6287.
