Next Wednesday: Another Bike-Only City Council Transportation Committee Hearing
Via the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, next Wednesday at 2:00 P.M. will be another "bicycle heavy" Transportation Committee Hearing. There's some new and interesting stuff on the agenda, such as a "bicycle anti-harassment ordinance," and some old friends such as an update on the Draft Bike Plan. Below is the LACBC's email, and once the agenda items are posted tomorrow we'll have a full review.
Cyclists! It is important that you come to Wednesday's LA City Council Transportation Committee meeting!
Here is the announcement sent by Councilmember Rosendahl's office:
