Objective Four:
Train city staff and consultants to implement the Bike 2015 Plan.

Strategies

4.1 Promote the goals, objectives, and strategies of the Bike 2015 Plan to key staff from the city and its sister agencies. Implementation of the Bike 2015 Plan depends on the input and support of key city and sister agency staff, particularly at the Chicago Department of Transportation, Department of Planning and Development, Chicago Park District, Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago Public Schools, and the Chicago Police Department.
4.1.1 Performance Measures: Stage 10 – 15 workshops in 2006, with an annual workshop afterwards.
   
4.2 Train transportation engineers and planners how to accommodate bicycling in their projects. Training will help ensure routine accommodation of bicycling in transportation projects. Training will also help ensure that bicycle facilities are constructed to appropriate standards, including AASHTO’s Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities and the proposed Bikeway Design Manual. Provide continuing education credits, where possible. Partner with the Illinois Department of Transportation, Cook County Highway Department, Chicago Area Transportation Study, and Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.
4.2.1 Performance Measure: Stage a bicycle planning and design workshop every two years, cooperatively with other agencies, beginning no later than 2007.
4.2.2 Best Practices: Chicago Area Transportation Study, Soles and Spokes conference; Chicagoland Bicycle Federation, Healthy Streets conference

Possible Funding

Illinois Department of Transportation; Chicago Area Transportation Study; Chicago Department of Transportation; Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.
