The city of Novato is seeking public comment for the next month on an update to its infrastructure plans for bicyclists and pedestrians.

A 30-day public review period for the addendum to the city’s Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan started Monday and will go through Oct. 13, and the City Council will then consider approving the plan at a meeting in November.

The plan outlines a recommended network of sidewalks, bike paths and other bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure and programs, prioritized by factors including whether it connects major activity centers, has high demand and has a history of accidents.

Some of the proposed future projects link to Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit train service or between major thoroughfares in the city. The full document can be found online.

People can provide comment on the plan by emailing associate city engineer Petr Skala or by sending him written comment by mail at Petr Skala, Public Works, 922 Machin Ave., Novato, CA 94944.
