City Council Candidates Answer Questions on Bicycling in Boulder


As a 501c3 nonprofit, Community Cycles does not endorse candidates. We do, however, educate the public on where candidates stand on bicycle issues. In order to give all the candidates the opportunity to address bicycle issues, we sent them the following questions:
  1. Do you support adopting a 20 mph speed limit on all Boulder residential streets in early 2020 as suggested by the current council?
  2. Do you support Council advancing a new transportation funding mechanism in 2020 and what would be your top three transportation spending priorities? 
  3. The increase recently in bicycle and pedestrian crashes and injuries shows that paint and flexible bollards do not provide real protection from traffic violence. As a Council person, what measures would you champion to protect vulnerable users on our city streets?
Candidate responses are shown here.
 
Aaron Brockett, Paul Cure, Brian Dolan, Benita Duran, Rachel Friend, Junie Joseph, Corina Julca, Nikki McCord, Mark McIntyre, Susan Peterson, Adam Swetlik, Mark Wallach and Bob Yates all responded. We know running for Council is a lot of work and we’d like to thank them for taking the time to give us their thoughts on these issues.
Use your voice, use your vote: Remember to return your mail-in ballot or vote in person on Tuesday, November 5!

Keep riding!

First Effort on ‘20 is Plenty’ Passes Council

On September 17, Boulder City Council adopted the 2019 Transportation Master Plan (TMP), which included many safety improvements put forward by Community Cycles. Council also expressed support for Community Cycles’ recommendation to change residential speed limits to 20 mph as part of a “20 is Plenty” Campaign.
 
We encourage everyone to read the TMP -- or at least give it a good long look. Particularly interesting is the Action Plan , the Pedestrian Plan and the Low Stress Bike and Walk Network Plan.
