The Hayward Area Coastal Planning Agency (HASPA) is developing a comprehensive Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan to ensure that the City of Hayward is prepared for the future. This plan, which is part of HASPA's larger coastal adaptation master plan, seeks to identify the policies and projects needed to prepare for sea level rise along the Hayward coast. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan will provide a blueprint for creating a safe, efficient, and equitable transportation system that meets the needs of all users. It will include recommendations for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure improvements, such as bike lanes, bike paths, sidewalks, crosswalks, and other safety measures.
The plan also recommends a total of 153 miles of new bike facilities, including 32 miles of multi-use trails for pedestrians and bicyclists. In addition to infrastructure improvements, the plan will also include recommendations for public education and outreach programs to encourage more people to use active transportation. It will also identify potential funding sources for implementing the recommended projects. By creating a safe, efficient, and equitable transportation system that meets the needs of all users, the plan will help to reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and promote healthy lifestyles. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is an important step in ensuring that the City of Hayward is prepared for the future.
It is essential that all stakeholders are involved in the development of this plan in order to ensure its success. With the right policies and projects in place, the City of Hayward can create a transportation system that meets the needs of all users.
