  • City's Adoption of Our Policy Platform Depends on You

    December 28, 2017
    This year, with your donations, we were able to lead a city election initiative to make sure candidates for Mayor and City Council knew where we stood on the issues that affect people who bike in Atlanta. We held a mayoral forum, a rolling town hall, and candidate rows at each Atlanta Streets Alive. These events not only showed you the candidates’ positions on the issues but they also established common ground with the electeds who will eventually vote on these issues inside City Hall.

    We’ve already laid out our vision and priorities with most of the new Atlanta City Council members. In 2018, we'll continue working toward their adoption of these elements from our 2017 election platform:
    • Adopt Vision Zero: New Mayor of Atlanta sets goal of zero traffic fatalities or injuries, then creates committee across city departments and led by community leaders and organizations
    • Create an ATL DOT:
      • Our goals are to help form a new Atlanta Department of Transportation/Mobility by reviewing legislation to create the department, participating on search committee for interim head, helping shape department structure, values, and goals
      • Advocate for the new department to hire transportation engineers with bicycle infrastructure design training & experience
    • Residential speed limit of 25mph citywide: determine whether administrative or legislative process, work with City Council to adopt legislation
    • 100 new miles of high-quality bike lanes and trails, including 20 new miles of protected bike lanes
    • $2.5 million line item for connecting gaps in bikeway network, bike lane maintenance, and enhancing safety of existing projects
    • Provide access to healthy last-mile transportation options by prioritizing bike share stations in low-income, disinvested communities
    • Eliminate off-street minimum parking requirements for housing developments in the City of Atlanta in all zoning districts
    Will you support these efforts by making a year-end contribution?
