#DamienTalks SGV 17 – Marisa Creter and the Future SGV Bicycle Superhighway

Today, #DamienTalks with Marisa Creter, the Assistant Executive Director of the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments. Our discussion mostly covers the excitement Creter, the CoG, other government officials and advocates have for the over 200-mile greenway plan.

Damien Talks SGV logoBoth BikeSGV and Creter refer to the plan as a “bike super highway” that criss-crosses the entire SGV with separated bike trails connecting residents to schools, businesses and the growing transit system.

BikeSGV has a google map of the proposal on their Greenway webpage. Creter notes that a large section of the Greenway Network, the Emerald Necklace, is already constructed and there are several smaller projects underway. There is also funding for the network in Measure M, should voters pass the initiative at the polls this November.

Creter is also one of the award winners at this year’s Noche de las Luminarias, an awards program presented by BikeSGV. For more information, visit the event webpage.
