Resolutions on Bicycles

The issue of making the campus more bicycle friendly by adding bicycle lanes, as specified in the Texas Tech University Master Plan, at the close of the spring semester of 2005, prompted the following resolutions from the Faculty Senate and the Staff Senate:

Faculty Senate, May 11, 2005:

Therefore, be it resolved (1) that the Faculty Senate urges the administration to incorporate bike lanes into the revised CMP, and (2) that the Faculty Senate begin working immediately with the Student and Staff Senates to strongly encourage the administration to seek funds immediately to develop and construct a comprehensive system of bike lanes on campus.

Staff Senate (emphasizing a Flint Avenue barrier), April 6, 2005:

Therefore, be it resolved this day that the Texas Tech University Staff Senate fully supports the need for a physical barrier along the east side of Flint Avenue between 18th and 19th Streets to guide pedestrian traffic toward the crosswalks in order to increase pedestrian and driver safety. Further, the Texas Tech University Staff Senate requests that the University administration give significant priority to funding and implementing such a project.
