Planning Commission Approves L.A. Bike Plan. On to City Council!

Screen shot 2010-12-16 at 10.34.19 AMI’ve been following the debate over the newest Draft Bike Plan at the City Planning Commission this morning on twitter, and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition just announced that the Commission passed the plan.  You can get details of the hearing by clicking here and reading the tweets from Joe Linton and the LACBC.

The City Council Transportation Committee and Planning and Land Use Committees will not meet again in 2010, so the City Council won’t act on the plan until early next year.  When details on the Council schedule emerges, we’ll post them here.

Streetsblog wishes to congratulate everyone that worked on making the final plan what it is, especially Joe Linton, the LACBC, and Bikeside which made improving the plan their life’s work.  There’s more work to do to get the plan passed, but even six weeks ago it seemed unlikely that Los Angeles was going to end up with a plan this good.
