23. Motion to Approve Modifications to the Quadricycle Ordinance, Article F: Bicycle, Moped and Skateboards
This item is being withdrawn by staff.
In May 2018, the Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC) reintroduced a proposal to modify the permitted boundaries for quadricycle operations in the downtown area. These boundaries are specified in Article F: Bicycles, Mopeds and Skateboards, and are distinguished by commercial and charter boundaries. In consultation with the TAC and City staff, the Office of Special Events, Film & Tourism is proposing the following revisions to Article F:
The proposed revisions will codify access to Williamson Street already permitted under an extended pilot program initiated by the former Tourism and Ambassadorship Department in 2016. Moving the eastern boundary will also reduce resident complaints concerning noise and congestion, as quadricycles would no longer be permitted access to eastern residential areas. A more thorough evaluation of the rules and regulations governing quadricycles will be initiated by the Office of Special Events, Film & Tourism during the larger Tour Service for Hire Ordinance revision planned for 2019.
