The San Luis Obispo City Council voted on it’s new Major City Goals today at the budget meeting today.  The following two photos show the outcome.  Items with an average score of 3 or more are major City Goals.  The balance are still important… just not the major goals.

See for yourself in the photos below how each  council person prioritized their constituencies feelings.  Good job Council.  It’s a big list though!

It’s nice to see that expanding bike infrastructure is on the list. (and I am quite stoked that the skatepark finally will get funding)

sorry about the  focus… only had a second to get the shot.  click the photo for a large version.

A designer friend James Sowins just introduced me to a cool little book of black and white illustrations of bikes by Cody Peterson called “Bikes for no reason.  So you can design the color scheme of a bike… or just doodle ideas… whatever really.  Cody built it as an additional outlet for his bike obsessions… in an effort to stem the flow of bikes into his house!  I also have a problem with too many bikes… but have yet to figure out how to cut back.  The books are 25 bucks and available on his website  www.bikesfornoreason.com .  All different types of bikes are featured in his drawings.  Fun gift for bike people.

Every so often the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments (SLOCOG)looks at the unmet transit needs across the county.  There is a comment section online where you can list what transit needs you feel are important.  This includes Bicycle improvements you would like to see in the COUNTY.  Regional trails are obviously big on my mind so I posted my comments on the the SLOCOG site.

Anyone’s comments are welcome… So I encourage you all to post your thoughts on unmet cycling needs (or any transit related needs) at:      http://www.slocog.org/Join/Unmet_Needs.php

Please mention the ANZA trail… and any other improvements you are interested in… such as a trail from SLO to Morro Bay, SLO to Los Osos etc.Remember… this is for the COUNTY… and unincorporated cities…  not so much for inside the incorporated city limits.

SLOCOG will be meeting in early 2013… so get your comments in now.

 

BTW…Thank You! to my friend Dallam Oliver-Lee for these links!
