The application is in.

On Wednesday, Feb. 15, Sitka’s renewal application for another Bicycle Friendly Community designation was submitted to the League of American Bicyclists. That was two days before the Feb. 17 deadline.

Now comes the waiting part. We probably won’t hear back on whether or not we maintained our current bronze level Bicycle Friendly Community status (or improved our status) until May. The League of American Bicyclists typically announces its selections as part of its kick-off to National Bike Month (the month of May). The program has four levels (Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze), plus there is an Honorable Mention designation for communities that aren’t quite to the level of the other Bicycle Friendly Communities.

The Sitka Bicycle Friendly Community Coalition thanks the many people who helped us compile our application, including Lynne Brandon (McGowan) with the City and Borough of Sitka Department of Parks and Recreation; Bob Laurie, Marie Heidemann and Dave Luchinetti with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities; Sitka Mayor Cheryl Westover (for the proclamation supporting our bid); Matthew Turner (who wrote our original application in 2008); Doug Osborne; the Sitka Police Department and others (sorry if we missed thanking you). This year’s application was written by Charles Bingham. A copy of our application is posted below as a PDF file.
