In September, Boise State put its stamp of approval on a master plan to improve conditions for people walking and bicycling on campus. The plan, prepared by staffers from Alta Planning + Design, is based on fieldwork along with input from Boise State University students, faculty and staff. It reviews existing conditions with emphasis on
- major routes of pedestrian and bicycle travel to and within campus;
- existing opportunities for bicycle parking on campus;
- important zones where foot traffic and bicycle traffic come into conflict;
- zones where pedestrians or cyclists come into conflict with motor vehicle traffic.
After describing the conditions that now exist on campus, the plan proceeds to recommend future improvements, including
- programs designed to increase safety for pedestrians and cyclists;
- facilities to improve travel options for people walking and bicycling on campus;
- facilities to improve bicycle parking opportunities (both short-term and long-term), and to improve security for parked bicycles.
