Rosendahl Announces Meeting on Mandeville Road Bike Issues

I'll have a full report on the Transportation Committee's big bike meeting earlier today, but one piece of quick news that doesn't require an in-depth report is an announcement by Councilman Bill Rosendahl that he will be holding a community meeting about the state of cycling within Mandeville Canyon Road. The Councilmember hopes to bring the community together to discuss how everyone can best share the road. Some ideas on the table include: signage, road improvements, road-sharing guidelines, and public education about the vehicle code.

The meeting will be held at the Felicia Mahood Multipurpose Center, 113388 Santa Monica Boulevard, on July 14th from 6:30 to 8:00 P.M. The Councilman's full advisory is available after the jump.

City officials will welcome suggestions from all parties on how to improve safety on the narrow 5 mile roadway that is heavily used by residents, visitors to nearby recreation areas, and cyclists. Discussion will also focus on efforts to better inform the public about laws and vehicle code sections pertaining to cycling and sharing the road.

The specifics of the July 4 incident, which is being investigated by law enforcement officials, will not be a subject of the meeting.
