  • Introductions
    • Attendees: Antje (chair), Fred, Nelson, Erika, Heather, Peter, Don P (notes), Fiona.
    • Guests: Lisa Parker and Adolfo Majano, City of North Vancouver
  • City of North Vancouver presentation of West Keith & 13th St designs
    • Detailed design is to be complete Feb 2017 and construction will run through July 2017. Additional funding available through Bike BC 242K$ and possibly Translink.
    • Third open house results: most positive comment was in favour of the off-road (separated) bike lane uphill on W Keith. The most requested improvement was to add an off-road downhill bike lane.
    • Several uphill sections will only have painted 0.8m buffers to traffic lanes. Flex posts were suggested for better protection.
    • Uphill at Chesterfield 1.6m bike lane with no buffer. Flex posts were suggested.
    • Downhill will be sharrows. A protected bike lane would be beside parking, this would require moving the traffic lanes into the median which is full of utilities. This is expensive and is seen as phase 2. Parking reduction was suggested as a cheaper option.
    • Action: Adolfo to send slides to HUB-NS. HUB-NS to provide written feedback.
