How was this map funded?
Funding to develop the map came from a federal Transportation Enhancements grant and the City's Bicycle Excise Tax, which is an amount collected on the sale of all new bicycles in City limits. Any proceeds the City receives from the sale of the map is returned to the Bicycle Excise Tax fund for future bicycle map updates and other bicycle-related improvements per the terms of the original funding sources used to develop the map.
