Are you a bike enthusiast?
Are you interested in the bikeways in Rockville?
Would you like to see more trails or bike lanes?
Would you like to make a difference on how the bikeways are maintained?
Then join RBAC! The committee has volunteer members, representing a broad range of bicyclist types. Since its creation, the RBAC has held regularly scheduled meetings throughout the year, carried out its mandated tasks, and has become an important and valuable resource to the City on bicycling issues. The active participation of the RBAC is vital to Rockville's continued success in implementing the Bikeway Master Plan Update and in improving conditions for bicycling in the City.
Several members of the RBAC worked closely with the City to develop the final recommendations for the 2004 Rockville Bikeway Master Plan Update. This committee provided input on the facility and programmatic improvements that are needed over the next 10 years, commented on the new Rockville Bicycle map, and served as liaisons to the full RBAC and other interested citizens.
The committee's mandate for action includes the following tasks:
•Assist in the development of the City's bicycle and pedestrian specific policies, as well as other policies that affect the conditions for bicycling in the City;
•Oversee the implementation of the City’s Bikeway Master Plan Update and report progress toward completion to the Mayor and Council;
•Review current and proposed CIP projects to ensure bicycle needs are incorporated into design and construction when appropriate; and
•Deliver updates on the needs and desires of bicyclists in the community, with recommendations for action to the Mayor and Council.
