St Alban's Episcopal Church
1501 Washington Avenue, Albany, CA 94706
Ken McCroskey

Have a gripe, an idea or some input about anything that would further cycling and pedestrian conditions here in Albany?
Then join us at our next meeting (every other month – odd-numbered months) where we discuss policy and projects, and talk about what’s going on in Active Transportation in Albany.

The racks at St. Alban's Church have gotten plenty of use already!

Plenty of bike parking at our meeting location, St. Alban’s Church!

Have something you want to talk about? Request an Agenda Item in “comments” (scroll down to the bottom for the next meeting.

Look forward to seeing you!

    Bring your bike to help test a new bike rack style!

    – decide on level of support for the May 19 Arts & Green Festival, at $250-500
    – explore buying a set of new bike racks for events at $80/ rack, each rack holds 8-10 bikes, we would need 10-15 racks

    I am unable to attend the meeting, but do have some concerns/requests about the intersection of Marin and Peralta.
    1. Waiting to turn left off of Peralta onto Marin, there is no bike sensor. The light doesn’t seem to change from red to green until a car arrives, or a pedestrian pushes the walk button.

    2. Riding east-bound on Marin, the lanes shift somewhat, so cars tend to edge into the bike lane at the east side of the intersection. Adding a dashed-line lane marker (like at Curtis) might be helpful.

  • Ken McCroskey

    Dear R. Konoff-

    As a member of the appointed Traffic and Safety Commission, I’d like to invite you to attend this Thursday’s Commission meeting for May. Alternatively, you could write an email to the Commission in care of our staff support person, Aleida Andrino Chavez, Transportation Planner, at

    You could also gather support for this idea in AS&R outside of our meeting by posting to the Discussion List.

    Thanks for your ideas,
