A RESOLUTION TO AUTHORIZE THE MAYOR TO SIGN THE ACTION PLAN FOR BICYCLE FRIENDLY COMMUNITIES

WHEREAS, the Town of Carrboro is one of 38 communities in the nation that have been granted the Bicycle Friendly Community designation by the League of American Bicyclists in recognition of the Town’s commitment to providing safe accommodation and facilities for bicyclists, and for efforts to encourage bicycling for fun, fitness, and transportation.

WHEREAS, the League of American Bicyclists encourages the Board of Aldermen to sign the “Action Plan for Bicycle Friendly Communities,” which outlines how a bicycle-friendly community enhances the quality of life of a community and includes ten steps to bring that about.

WHEREAS, the capital cities of four European nations and the United States were among the 20 communities who signed the "Action Plan for Bicycle Friendly Communities" at the conclusion of an International Symposium on Bicycle Friendly Communities on Thursday, March 4, 2004 in Washington, DC.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Aldermen of the Town of Carrboro that the Mayor is hereby empowered to sign the “Action Plan for Bicycle Friendly Communities.”

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED by the Carrboro Board of Aldermen that the Transportation Advisory Board will evaluate Carrboro’s progress in achieving the goals of the action plan as part of updating the Carrboro Bicycle Policy over the next year.
