By unanimous vote Tuesday evening, San Clemente’s City Council adopted its first Mobility and Complete Streets Element and Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
Both documents are fully integrated with the City’s new General Plan and will guide all decisions related to transportation and parking. The Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan takes effect March 6, 2014.
The City Council should be commended for its willingness to embrace multi-modal transportation. Seeking to balance the public right of way among all users, the Council has chosen to become a leader in transportation planning.
San Clemente will be better prepared to accommodate future growth and economic development while preserving the quality of life residents and visitors have enjoyed for decades. The Plan is sure to encourage other California cities to follow its footsteps.
