Notes

• 2013 Highlights (very brief update from each town)
• Snow plowing on the Bikeway: 2013-14 winter lessons learned. Planning for future winters like this one.
• Bikeway Signage: status of planning for a "master plan" and funding for implementation
• Dog waste, trash, recyclable bins
• Report from Terry on Wiggins Road improvements
• Paving plans on Lexington section of Bikeway (mostly about the detour that will be required, since one section of repaving begins at Mal's and runs to Fottler)
• Greenway 100 (Richard Canale wants to talk about this in terms of the Bikeway)
• Status reports on Reformatory Branch, Belmont RT, Concord RT, Billerica RT (who should be invited from Concord and Billerica, and is there time for all 4?)
plus
• Electric assist bikes (I'd like to discuss this topic, but LBAC wants to talk about it only if someone does their homework on best practices and policies elsewhere — and there is plenty to draw from; but this is a topic that can lend itself to a lot of endless talk, and my committee would rather avoid an open-ended discussion.)

The other items on Terry's list (uniform night riding rules; bikeway striping; and rights of way) were items that LBAC thought we might discuss either off-line or some other time.

chris - chair; times on all agenda items; stick to sched; 1 voice per town (but if appropriate, 1 minority voice allowed) - thus each BAC must discuss ahead of time all agenda items and have a BAC position: can't decide (yet), consensus do this, or split between this and that; no repeating what was already said; other town RT reports very short (3 mins max);
