What We Have Done
Since Walk-Bike Cupertino’s inception, the city has committed nearly $3.5m in bike/ped safety projects. This is a distinct turnaround from the prior four years of very low resource allocation.
- Bike/Ped City budget Update – At the June 9 2015 City Council Meeting, the Council approved nearly $800K to fund projects for FY16, ending in June 2016. In June 2016, the City Council approved an additional $2.0M in funds for bike/ped projects in the city. See the list of funded projecst in the Projects Menu.
- Bike/Ped City budget. Advocated and successfully promoted budget of $685K for the 2014-15 fiscal year. This is the largest budget allocated to Bike/Ped improvements in the prior five years.
- Planning. Worked closely with Cupertino City staff to identify and prioritize Bike/Ped projects.
- Newsletters. Walk-Bike Cupertino publishes a regular newsletter available to anyone.
- Sharrows. Successfully advocated for sharrows (shared lane markings) on McClelland Road from Monta Vista High School to Foothill Blvd.
- Green bike lanes. Promoted the need for green bike lanes on Stevens Creek Boulevard from DeAnza to Foothill.
- Collaboration with local schools, colleges and organizations. Worked with DeAnza College to open up bike entrance on McClelland Road; Worked with Cupertino Rotary to fund a bike repair station at DeAnza College; Currently we are researching and developing a Bike/Ped safety training plan for CUSD (Cupertino Union School District) Middle and elementary students.
