Bicycle Parking Information

The Jacksonville City Council approved new standards for bicycle parking in August 2018. These standards make parking a bike easier and more convenient. New bike racks are required to support bicycles in two places, and be conveniently located near business entrances, while not blocking sidewalks for pedestrians. These changes are now in the Ordinance Code and the Land Development Procedures Manual Section 3 (Pages 10 to the 18). We can also provides examples of well-designed bicycle racks in Jacksonville.

If you would like to start the process to obtain a permit to install a bicycle rack in City Right-of-Way contact Karissa Moffett (kmoffett@coj.net) for more information.
