Providing safe and convenient bicycle parking is important and frequently overlooked. We encourage both short and long term bicycle parking to ensure places to park for people who arrive by bike. Bicycle parking provides additional parking and reduces the number of bicycles locked to signs, railings, trees and other furniture. Our draft bicycle parking guidelines should be used to ensure adequate facilities.

Publicly available bicycle parking is currently in the pilot phase. The City is working with stakeholders to develop a simple process for requesting a public bike rack and there are multiple considerations.

Each location will be evaluated individually to ensure they meet zoning and planning regulations.
