Bicycle & Pedestrian

The Bicycle & Pedestrian Subcommittee advises the Transportation and Parking Commission and the Office of Planning & Sustainability on policy issues relating to improving bicycle and pedestrian facilities and safety.  It focuses on policy and priority setting, not on specific roadway projects. It's work includes serving as a sounding board for:

  • Sustainable Northampton Comprehensive Plan's Walk/Bike Northampton element
  • Sustainable Northampton's Open Space, Recreation, and Multi-use Trail element
  • The City's shared trail design and projects
  • ValleyBike share expansion within the city
  • MassDOT and MassWorks funded complete street projects
  • Regulatory changes that effect bicycle and pedestrian safety
  • Other city actions
