The City of Syracuse’s Bike Plan arose from both the Complete Streets mandate recently passed by New York State, as well as foundational work laid out in the Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council (SMTC)'s 2008 report, "University Hill Bike Network Project." It is considered to be a component of the Syracuse Comprehensive Plan. The Department of Public Works and Bureau of Planning and Sustainability also used precedents from cities both nearby (New York City, NY and Montreal, QC) and far away (Portland, OR and Copenhagen, Denmark) where bicycles have an identity on the streets. The intention of this document is to outline a vision for an interconnected bicycling network, provide a guide for implementation and appropriate treatments in the Syracuse climate, educate the public about the benefits of bicycling as a mode of travel, and overall make Syracuse a “cycle city.”Below are various sections of the Syracuse Bike Plan. For ease of access, this plan is available as a single PDF download, as well as discrete chapters for individuals with specific interests. The Bike Plan is currently under review by the Syracuse Planning Commission. There will be a public meeting on Monday, December 10th at 6PM at the City Hall Common Council Chambers regarding this document and other planning documents. After adoption by the Planning Commission, this document will be approved as official policy by the Syracuse Common Council.
While not a part of the official document, for public consumption, all of the main public presentations for the Bike Plan are available below:
