Has the institution developed a bicycle plan?:

A brief description of the plan:

The Bicycle Parking Master Plan is the result of a year-long planning process aimed to create a phased approach to providing additional bike parking areas to meet short-term and long-term parking needs of campus cyclists. The master plan assess the existing conditions of bicycle parking on campus, develops a methodology to determine potential bike parking needs based on types of users, identifies regions of campus which appear to be deficient in bike parking, and establishes design standards for bike rack and mass bike parking hubs.
