The Toledo-Lucas County Library has once again, make bicycle parking a part of the design for the new Mott Library soon to open on Dorr Street. This location is within Toledo where the city has codified bike parking requirements for new contruction that is considered by the Toledo Plan Commission. We would like to recognize the Library for making bike parking a stardard requirement of design. The City of Toledo is currently the only jurisdiction with codified bike parking requirements that provides routine accomodations for cyclists. You will find that all Toledo-Lucas County libraries include bike parking, regardless of the (lack) of requirements by the local jurisdiction. Thank you Toledo-Lucas County Library!

We are actively working to promote local ordinances in each jurisdiction so that bike parking is considered along with other parking requirements for new and retrofit constuction.
