City to hold Public hearing on bicycle parking

The Planning Commission has initiated a Zoning Code Text amendment, proposing a supplement to the Parking Loading & Access section of the Zoning Code by adding bicycle parking design and location standards, a bicycle parking requirement for new development, and an automobile parking reduction incentive for providing bicycle parking.

A copy of the proposed text amendments may be reviewed at the Zoning Office on the third floor of 200 Ross St., Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed text amendments on: Tuesday, September 1 at 2 p.m. in the John P. Robin Civic Building, first floor, 200 Ross Street, Downtown.

Testimony presented by individuals will be limited to three minutes each. Testimony presented by a spokesperson representing an organization will be limited to five minutes each, and the spokesperson shall provide a "Letter of Authorization" from the appropriate officers.

Prepared comments may be presented in lieu of testimony, and testimony should not be read from a prepared statement but may be summarized as testimony with the prepared statement handed to the Commission for their review.

Prepared comments can also be emailed to Dolores Hanna, special project operations manager, Department of City Planning at dolores. hanna@city.pittsburgh.pa.us and will be presented to the commission as correspondence for that meeting.
