RESOLUTION OF THE SENATE

OF

THE ASSOCIATED STUDENTS OF MONTANA STATE UNIVERSITY

Adopted 16 November 2017

Whereas, The Centennial Mall of Montana State University (MSU) and other areas of the MSU campus become crowded, disorganized, and sometimes dangerous due to the amount of foot, bicycle, and other multi-modal forms of traffic at varying times of the day; and 

Whereas, the use of bicycles and other multi-modal forms of transportation on campus is increasing and prevalent at all times of the academic year; and 

Whereas, the infrastructure of the MSU campus needs to be considered as the university is growing; and, 

Whereas, on campus bike lanes eliminate congestion, reduce the risk of pedestrian and bicycle dangers, encourage students and faculty to commute on and to campus by bicycle, and facilitate the efficient use of campus outdoor space; now, therefore be it 

Resolved, ASMSU supports the planning and implementation of on campus bike lanes on the Centennial Mall and other areas of the MSU campus.
