Pedestrian Bicycle Master Plan

Plan Purpose
Slide1.JPGThe Eugene Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan (PBMP) provides the city of Eugene with the projects and policies necessary to create a first-class city for bicycling and walking.  The PBMP serves as the basis for bicycling and pedestrian elements of the citywide Transportation System Plan (TSP).  The project area consists of the outer extent of the Eugene city limits and the Urban Growth Boundary.

Public Process
The PBMP was developed through an extensive community process beginning in 2010.  A Project Advisory Committee (PAC) was assembled with members of neighborhood groups, accessibility organizations, the Sustainability Commission, school districts, higher education institutions, and the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC).  The PAC met throughout the project to advise the project management team about goals, policies, existing conditions, and recommendations.     

Three public open houses were held, one during each phase of plan development.  The initial open house invited members of the public to comment on goals and objectives, existing conditions, and concepts from the design toolkit.  The second offered community members the chance to give feedback on the draft recommendations and the final open house was held to unveil the draft plan document.   

There was also a wikimap, online comment form, and online survey tool utilized to gather community input. The final plan was accepted by City Council in March 2012 as an interim guide for the development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities until the Transportation System Plan was adopted (scheduled for mid-2015).

Plan Revisions and Updates
Sections of the PBMP will be adopted as a component of the Transportation Systems Plan (TSP) in 2016.  As a result, the PBMP maps and project tables were updated to reflect completed projects, new projects that weren't forecast in 2012, and changes in facility type due to advances in engineering practice (such as the inclusion of more Protected Bike Lanes).
