Hey Tempe Cyclists!! Tired of complaining about the unsafe riding conditions, bike lanes which seem to end for no reason, non-existent bike crossing signals, etc. etc. Quit complaining and help us do something about it. 2013 is going to be a busy year for TBAG advocates. There are major street re-design projects for us to monitor and influence, including the Mill Ave Streetcar, University Drive, Hardy Drive and Broadway Road. We also need to follow the update processes for the Transportation Master Plan and the General Plan. And we have our normal monthly committee meetings to attend.

Bring your ideas and your calendar and get ready to sign up to help!! See you at our 2013 kick-off TBAG Advocacy Meeting – Sunday January 6th 7pm at Boulders on Broadway.

From the City of Tempe:

  • We sincerely apologize for the delayed notification of tonight’s meeting.  Door hangers were to be delivered to all business and residents in the area but there was a vendor error with the distribution.  We hope you are able to attend the meeting. 

    The city of Tempe is holding a public meeting to talk with residents, businesses and organizations about a project to improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities, enhance the streetscape and calm traffic on University Drive between the Union Pacific Railroad (east of Farmer Avenue) and Priest Drive. This project is funded with $1.1 million in federal grant money.

    The meeting will be held Oct. 30 at the Dennis J. Cahill Senior Center at the Westside Multi-Gen Center at 715 W. Fifth Street, Tempe at 6 p.m.

    Discussion at the meeting will include:
    · Presentation of the project scope and draft design concept
