Blog #6 Community Meeting on Fairfax Bike Spine Project

Saturday, March 17, 2012
9:30—11:30 a.m.
Women’s Club, 46 Park Road

Residents of the Fairfax community are encouraged to attend an upcoming workshop to discuss the proposed Schools Bike Spine Project. This past October, the Transportation Authority of Marin granted the Town of Fairfax $110,000 to install signage and street markings for identified bicycle routes to school. The Schools Bike Spine will connect much of Fairfax to three schools—Cascade Canyon, Manor Elementary, and White Hill Middle schools. The overall goal of the project is to improve the safety of the Town’s streets for student bicyclists, as well as increase awareness of motorists who share the road with them.

The first phase of the Fairfax Schools Bike Spine will begin at Bolinas Road to the south, run along Park Road, Arroyo and/or Sequoia roads, Manor Road, Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, Oak Manor Drive, and end on Glen Drive (see map). A future phase of the project may extend along Olema Road. The intent of the public workshop is to inform the community about the proposed changes and to solicit input prior to finalizing the project. The workshop will consist of a presentation, as well as discussion and input from residents.
