Shawn Long will now represent ASC for UFPB, and has replaced both David Kack, former Professional Council representative, and Glen Steinhoff, former Staff Senate representative and newly appointed Chair of ASC.

 

 

ITEM No. 5 – RECOMMENDATION – Personal Mobility Device Policy

Candace Mastel presented recommendation to approve the updated Personal Mobility Device (PMD) Policy.

 

UFPB received a draft of the PMD Policy with a recommendation for approval on August 20, 2019.  The discussion at that time suggested that further consulting with additional campus constituency was needed. After further deliberation with those additional groups the draft policy was changed.

 

Areas of change in the policy from the original draft are as follows:

  • Pedal-assist E-bikes are permitted where non-motorized PMDs are permitted
  • Vendor based PMDs are permitted on campus except in designated areas
  • Motorized PMDs that provide a human-powered option are permitted where non-motorized PMDs are permitted
  • Administrative closures to any type of PMD are provided for under this policy to assist university officials and staff with providing a safe and courteous environment for operation of PMDs and balancing construction, traffic flow, pedestrian movement, etc.

 

Since this document was reviewed in August, CPDC has initiated a Slow Your Role campaign, as well as a dismount zone campaign to help alleviate excessive traffic in construction zones.

 

Anna Price, MSU’s Transportation Program Manager, has been helping with communications and outreach around campus.

Upon endorsement by UFPB, this policy will go to the Transportation Advisory Committee followed by University Council at the beginning of December.  The policy is slated to be in place by January 2020.

 

Brett Gunnink questioned the method of enforcement if vendor-based PMDs are not allowed on campus. Candace Mastel explained the ability of Geo-fencing technology which has the ability to disengage a device as a means of regulating admittance on campus.  

 

Mike Stanley commented on the efficacy of keeping the vendor at a distance so as not to give the perception that we are ready to enter into any special agreements.  He also agreed with the right to provide administrative closures.

 

Joe Schumacher raised the concern regarding the language used for vendor vs. non vendor-based PMDs.   Kris Johnson requested that a distinction be made in the policy between shared system vendors vs. bicycle rentals so as not to eliminate the allowance for “one-off bicycle rentals” on campus.

 

Brett Gunnink motioned to support the policy with the suggestion to look at language which would make the distinction between shared vs rented PMDs.

Joe Schumacher seconded the motion.

The Vote:  12 Aye, 0 Nay
