Broad Street Bicycle Boulevard Community Survey

Post Date:06/14/2017 5:13 PM

The City has held three community meetings over the past year for the Broad Street Bicycle Boulevard project, including an interactive design charrette. Throughout this process, staff has also collected input from the project’s online forum, and conducted extensive analysis to guide development of planning-level design concepts. Out of this planning effort three (3) potential alternatives have emerged:

1. Installing diverters along Broad Street to force vehicular traffic onto Chorro Street and Santa Rosa
2. Converting Broad and Chorro Streets into a one-way couplet system to provide the space for a two-way cycle track on Chorro and buffered bike lane on Broad
3. Traffic calming and branding on Broad and Chorro Streets without traffic diversion

Over the next few weeks, a survey will be mailed to approximately 1,200 residents in the Broad and Chorro neighborhood to gauge the level of support and opposition to each of these alternatives. The survey will also be available community-wide via the project webpage. A copy of this survey is attached for reference. In order to obtain direction on which alternative to carry forward to the final phase of development, the three alternatives along with the results of the neighborhood survey will be presented to the Bicycle Advisory Committee at its July 20, 2017. Following that review the alternatives will be forwarded to the City Council at its August 15th, 2017 meeting. In addition to the traditional Council agenda notification procedures, these public meetings will be advertised in the Tribune, the City’s website and social media platforms. 

Those whom cannot attend the meetings are encouraged to visit the project website ( to participate in the survey, provide comments, review meeting summaries and project materials, and subscribe to project updates.  If you have any questions regarding the Broad Street Bike Boulevard, please contact Project Managers Luke Schwartz via phone (805-781-7190) or email ( or Jennifer Rice via phone (805-781-7058) or email (
