Chapter 3

Objective Five:
Encourage bike storage facilities at existing multi-family residential buildings.


5.1 Encourage the installation of convenient and secure bike parking inside multi-family residential buildings. Bicycle use is often discouraged in multi-family buildings because residents must carry their bicycles up stairs or store them in inconvenient locations (e.g., balconies).
5.1.1 Performance Measures: Post guidelines on the Bicycle Program’s Web site by 2007; distribute to developers, building managers, and condominium associations, beginning in 2007.
5.1.2 Best Practice: Paris, France
5.2 Encourage construction of bike parking sheds to provide convenient and secure places for long-term parking. Prefabricated sheds that store up to 12 bicycles are available. Installation (e.g., in parking lots) is usually simple and inexpensive. If successful, expand initiative.
5.2.1 Performance Measure: Construct 3 – 5 bike parking sheds by 2008.
5.2.2 Best Practices: Ann Arbor, MI; Shanghai, China

Possible Funding

Building developers, owners and managers; condominium associations.
