City of North Kansas City Codes & Policy Review

As North Kansas City moves forward with several exciting bicycle infrastructure projects, BikeWalkKC has been assisting with a review and update of codes and policies related to bicycles and pedestrians. In July 2018, BikeWalk presented the first round of code recommendations to the North Kansas City Council, including protections for vulnerable road users, guidance on riding to the right and on bike paths, biking on the sidewalk, passing cyclists at a safe distance, driving and parking in bike lanes, right of way in crosswalks, and other changes that will support a safer environment for cyclists of all ages and abilities. These code updates were adopted in August 2018. Potential future policy items include updates to the zoning code and a Complete Streets policy.
