Norman City Council adopts comprehensive transit plan unanimously, despite debate



The council also approved a salary increase for the city manager from $156,832 to $165,000 annually.

Friday is Bike to Work Day throughout the state. In honor of that day, Norman — along with the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments — is hosting a rally at Andrews Park at 8:30 a.m. Friday.

John Sharp of ACOG talked about the role the Norman Bicycle Advisory Committee has played in identifying cycling corridors and enhancing the safety of commuting by bike in Norman.

ACOG has worked with the city to organize short group rides to meet up at Andrews Park on Friday in celebration of Bike to Work Day. Start options for group rides meet at 8 a.m. at the Norman Regional HealthPlex, Norman Regional Hospital’s Education Center Parking and at the Murray Case Sells Swim Center. A ride from Moore Norman Technology Center will start at 7:30 a.m.

ACOG encourages people to ride their bikes to work or check for other opportunities to ride throughout Bike Month.
