Austin, TX City Council Considers Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community Resolutions

This just in from the folks at Austin's yellow bike project ( http://www.austinyellowbike.org/ )

Two recommendations for City Council:

RECOMMENDATION FOR COUNCIL ACTION
Subject: Approve a resolution supporting efforts to upgrade the City of Austin?s bicycle network by establishing the city?s intent to become the first Texas city to attain Gold level bike-friendly status from the League of American Bicyclists; supporting the work of the Street Smarts Task Force January 2008; and directing the City Manager to study and report back to Council with recommendations for inclusion of the Street Smarts Task Force findings into the Austin Bicycle Master Plan.
