Goleta’s Biking and Walking Future

Over the last two years the City has undertaken a Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan (BPMP).  This was developed with input from the community, project consultant, Technical Advisory Committee, City Commissions and Council. The City Council adopted this plan on October 16, 2018, and this document will provide the City with a roadmap for the next 10-20 years.

The BPMP will make it easier to bike and walk around town by encouraging the development of an integrated bicycle and pedestrian system throughout the City of Goleta with connections to other regional bike systems. The BPMP also promotes public health by encouraging more people to bike and walk, reducing automobile usage and fuel consumption, and promoting transportation equity.

The BPMP outlines a broad range of improvements within public rights-of-way that will be developed and constructed when Council directs project funding and prioritization. These improvements will occur over the next ten to twenty years and coordinate with the existing Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The BPMP is also considered a “living document” that Council can update as needed in future years when new programs and projects are identified.
