Bicycles in 14 Policies and 1 Objective of the Daytona Beach City Comprehensive Plan

Word cloud of Daytona Beach Comprehensive Plan policies and objectives which include bicycles.

Policy The City shall maintain development standards for bike
paths and bike parking facilities at City parks and recreational

Policy The City's Land Development Code shall be maintained to
ensure that internal traffic circulation systems separate vehicular
from non-vehicular traffic including pedestrians and bicycles.

Objective 2.1.13 Bike Paths - The City shall continue to support the
development of bicycle facility development in the City consistent
with the MPO long-range transportation plan as updated.

Policy Maintain in the City's Land Development Code for the
construction of interconnected bike path facilities to serve all new
planned developments, subdivisions and attractions where future
demands warrant

Policy Where feasible through street and park improvements
projects consistent with the MPO 2025 Long Range Transportation Plan,
enhance the existing City bicycle system in a manner that encourages
the use of bicycles as an alternate means of transportation. In
addition, the City shall actively pursue grant funding when available
for bike paths, pedestrian systems, parking facilities including
Beville Road bike path, beachside parking facilities and Surfside
Village beach access.

Policy Maintain requirements for a sidewalk system in the Land
Development Code, giving highest priority to linking residential
neighborhoods to schools, recreation areas and to shopping areas and
providing separate pedestrian and bicycle facilities in those areas
that have, or may be anticipated to have, significant conflicts
between automobile traffic and bicyclists or pedestrians

Policy The City shall maintain development standards for bike
paths and bike parking facilities at City parks and recreational

Policy By 2012, the City shall coordinate with the MPO to
prepare and adopt an access plan that will set standards to maintain
and improve the public automobile, bicycle, and pedestrian access to
recreational sites within the City.

Policy By 2015, the City shall complete improvements to
Derbyshire and Bethune Point parks, making them more accessible to
pedestrians and bicycles.

Policy The City shall review plats and development plans and
continue to require bicycle and/or pedestrian paths as part of its
Land Development Code regulations when warranted. The City shall adopt
Land Development Code regulations by 2012 implementing this policy.

Policy The following mobility strategies shall be utilized
within the TCEA, including that portion of the SIS within the TCEA, as

     h) Safe and convenient parking facilities that accommodate pedestrians and

     l) Pedestrian, bicycle, and transit facility amenities and enhancements such as
         landscaped and shaded routes and shelters

Policy The City shall implement the following ‚"complete streets"
principles in order to ensure that all modes of transportation are
incorporated into proposed plans for roadway modifications within the
TCEA. The intent of this policy is to develop a comprehensive,
integrated, multi-modal street network by coordinating transportation
planning strategies and private development activities that include,
but are not limited to the following principles:

     a) "All users" are defined to include pedestrians, bicyclists, transit
         vehicles and users, and motorists, of all ages and abilities.

     e) Provide or contribute appropriate bicycle facilities and improvements to
         existing bicycle infrastructure.

Policy Where appropriate, developers may be required to fund or
construct mobility improvements listed below. The City may issue
credits toward contribution requirements, if applicable:

     i) Deeding of land and/or construction of new bicycle lanes, shared paths or
        sidewalks that provide local connectivity and reduce trips on major arterials.

Policy The City will coordinate with VOTRAN to derive
appropriate performance measures to quantify the mode split
percentages within the City's TCEA.  Special consideration shall be
given to the mobility goals for sidewalks, bicycle paths and
pedestrian uses. The performance measures will be developed and
documented by December 31, 2012.

Policy The City shall reduce hazardous walking conditions
consistent with Florida's Safe Ways to School Program. In conjunction
with the School Board, the City shall implement the following

     2. New development and redevelopment within two miles of a school
         shall be required to provide sidewalks within or adjacent to the
         property for the corridor that directly serves the school or qualifies
         as an acceptable designated walk or bicycle route to the school.
     3. In order to ensure continuous pedestrian access to public schools,
         the City shall consider infill sidewalk and bicycle projects
         connecting networks serving schools as part of the annual capital
         budget process. Priority shall be given to hazardous walking
         conditions pursuant to Section 1006.23, Florida Statutes.

Bicycles in 13 Policies and 2 Objectives in the Volusia County Comprehensive Plan

Word cloud of Volusia County Comprehensive Plan objectives and policies which include bicycles

Objective 2.1.10 Encourage bicycle use and pedestrian activity
throughout Volusia County.

Policy Volusia County has established land use and other strategies

corridors served by transit to promote transit ridership.

Policy Volusia County shall continue to coordinate with the Volusia
TPO to develop and update the County wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan.

Policy Volusia County shall integrate bicycle (i.e., bicycle
racks on buses, secure bicycle storage lockers, and park and ride
lots), and pedestrian features into transit planning.

Policy Subsequent to designation as a Scenic Corridor, a management
plan for each corridor must be prepared. The plan shall, at a minimum,
analyze existing conditions and provide guidelines for the management
of the vegetation within the public right-of-way, establish speed
limits along the designated route, consider the potential for
multiple-use bicycle and pedestrian facilities, design and placement
of information and directional signs, and needed roadway improvements.

Policy The County shall coordinate with the FDOT and any
relevant municipalities in the preparation of Master Plans for Florida
State designated scenic highways to provide for safe bicycle and
pedestrian circulation, traffic calming and aesthetic improvements.
