San Fernando City Council Votes on Pacoima Wash Bike Path

Next week, a special City Council study session will be held to evaluate an application to fund phase 1 of the Pacoima Wash Bike Path. The bike path is a 3.2-mile connection between Pacoima and the Angeles National Forest at Lopez Dam. The first phase, 1.6 miles long, runs through the City of San Fernando and connects multiple parks, a new high school and the brand new San Fernando Road bike path. This bike path is the result of over a decade of community planning by Pacoima Beautiful around revitalizing and greening the Pacoima Wash to turn a blight into a valuable asset for the northeast San Fernando Valley.
The San Fernando City Council needs to hear from people that want to see this bike path realized and will use it when it is built.
Pacoima Wash Bike Path City Council Study Session
When: Monday, March 17; 4:30 p.m.
Where: San Fernando City Hall – 117 Macneil Street, San Fernando, CA 91340
