Through the re-organization of Public Works and use of the transportation policy, the Alternative Transportation program will conceive and initiate projects, develop a process for community input and decision-maker review, and be a liaison to other Public Works Divisions and the Land Development Team. The program also manages existing programs such as Sidewalk Missing Links, Hitching Post and Bike Locker installations, Neighborhood Traffic Management, and the dissemination of transportation information to businesses and special interest groups.
