Madison Bikes Calendar Highlights (7/25/16)

We try and keep all regular transportation-related city meetings on our Community Bike Calendar. This week's highlights: The 4th week of the month is always a busy one for city meetings, with meetings of the Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Motor Vehicle Commission (PBMVC), the Long Range Transportation Planning Committee (LRTPC), and the recently created Transportation Ordinance Review Ad Hoc Committee (TORC). In addition to those meetings, it's also the week of one of Madison's biggest fun bike events, Ride the Drive this coming Sunday.

More details after the fold.

PBMVC (Pedestrian/Bicycle/Motor Vehicle Commission)

is the main city committee focused on bike-related issues. This month will include a Racial Equity and Social Justice Presentation by Toriana Pettaway and discussion around how we best incorporate this into our transportation planning. Also, a presentation on the status of our Sustainable Master Transportation Plan (Madison in Motion) by Dave Trowbridge. This is one of the few city meetings that is live streamed and available over the web.

Agenda here and you can watch from home here.

TORC (Transportation Ordinance Review Ad Hoc Committee)

is an ad hoc committee that’s been meeting since spring. Their charge is to review and rewrite the city’s transportation ordinance. The existing ordinance currently calls for a Director of Transportation (among other things) even though we have not had one at the city for many years. The work done here could lead to a significant restructuring of our transportation committees. This week there will be a review of the Draft Statement of Purpose drafted by City Attorney Strange.
