2/24/2015 - Ordinance No. 15-10766 Substituting Bycycle Master Plan Map in the Comprehensive Plan

ORDINANCE NUMBER 15-10766

AN ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR THE AMENDMENT OF THE SALINA COMPREHENSIVE PLAN BY SUBSTITUTING A BICYCLE MASTER PLAN MAP AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR THE CURRENT BICYCLE CONCEPT MAP IN THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN.

WHEREAS, all conditions precedent for the amendment of the Salina Comprehensive Plan have been timely complied with.  SO NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED by the Governing Body of the City of Salina, Kansas:

Section 1.  Findings.  The Governing Body makes the following findings:

1. The current adopted Bicycle Concept Map (Figure 2.10) is a conceptual map that was not based on any public input or feedback.  Many of the shared road segments are not even identified by street name.  The proposed substitute map is based on feedback received from the cycling community. 

2. The substitute Bicycle Master Plan Map would make the adopted and publicly used Bicycle Route Map conform more closely to the preferred routes and actual usage by the cycling community than the current Figure 2.10. 

3. The proposed substitute map would clarify and more clearly define the preferred bicycle routes in the community than the current Figure 2.10 and would assist with prioritizing future bicycle network improvements.

4. Having an internally produced Functional Bicycle Master Plan Map will make it easier to keep up to date over time.

Section 2.  Comprehensive Plan Amendment.  The Bicycle Concept Map (Figure 2.10) of the Salina Comprehensive Plan is amended by substituting an internally produced Bicycle Master Plan Map for the current Bicycle Concept Map (Figure 2.10) in the Salina Comprehensive Plan document.

Section 3.  Repealer.  All prior ordinances in conflict herewith as they relate to the Bicycle Concept Map are hereby repealed.

Section 4.  Summary of ordinance for publication.  This ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its adoption and publication by summary once in the official city newspaper.
