The City's Active Transportation Plan identifies a need for increased, bike-friendly bike racks in the City. In 2012 the City's Clean, Green and Beautiful Committee provided Active Transportation with project funding to launch the 'Bike Racks for Business' program. The goals of the program are to:
offer local businesses the opportunity to purchase and install bicycle racks at a subsidized cost
encourage and enable cyclists to patronize local businesses
improve the quality, amount and consistency of cycling infrastructure in the City
generate awareness of cycling and cyclists
encourage cycling as a commuting option
beautify the local business areas through public art
The bike racks will have a site (panel) available for the inclusion of artistic designs produced by local/regional Artists.
