Stevens Creek Trail Connector Through Sunnyvale Discussed this Week

The cities of Cupertino, Los Altos, Mountain View and Sunnyvale host a meeting this week to design the extension of the public trail.

Would you ride, run or walk to Mountain View if you could using the Stevens Creek Trail?

Cyclists, joggers and pedestrians listen up!

Since the completion of Mountain View's Stevens Creek Trail bridge extension over State Route 85, the focus has now turned to Sunnyvale and how that city could extend the trail to connect with Cupertino.

To help envision the trail, the cities of Cupertino, Los Altos, Mountain View and Sunnyvale invite the public to the first in a series of open meetings to gather input from the community about how and where to complete a multi-use trail in the Stevens Creek Corridor between Cupertino and Mountain View.

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, at 7 p.m., in the Grant Park Center at 1570 Holt Ave. in Los Altos.

Attendees will be able contribute ideas and learn about the current trail features along the corridor. This will be the first of six meeting planned through the Fall 2013.

Gas prices are awful and will likely never go back under $3. Traffic is terrible and getting worse as the economy improves. Commuters are willing to bicycle if there are safe bicycle routes. The weather here is mostly nice year-round and and the Stevens Creek Trail route is mostly flat. Bike paths are much much cheaper than more highways, so lets get it done ASAP.

The Stevens Creek Trail Feasibility Study is a great example of public manipulation. The process is biased and corrupted and they really don't care what the residents of streets that will be affected have to say. The community input process is designed to help ratify a handful of specific routes and not actually gather input ... just look at the lame "survey" forms that are provided at the end. And no option is provided to speak in front of the entire group ... wonder why that is? Part of their plan is to tell you just enough (and withhold important information) so that certain routes seem like the best. For example, read the documentation and listen in the public sessions. Do you ever see or hear them reference to "school safety?" That is because if you stopped and thought about how the on-street trail could put school children as risk via adding bike traffic on roads that are already congested. Or in general having 1,000 strangers a day riding through open campuses. The next public meeting for the Stevens Creek Trail Connection will be February 25, 7 p.m. at the Cupertino Senior Center, 21251 Stevens Creek Blvd. Come to this meeting and enjoy the spin !!!
