On Deck for Next Week: Bike Themed City Council Meeting

11_14_08_kitchen.jpg

Back in July, the City Council Transportation Committee hosted its first bike-themed meeting in recent memory.  This month, they are planning on outdoing themselves.  Next Friday, November 21 at 1 P.M., the Transportation Committee will hold a hearing on six different bike themed measures as well as the continuing the shuttle service to Dodger Stadium, and a RAND Corporation report outlining short-term strategies to reduce traffic.

The bicycle related motions up for discussion include updates on the Sharrows Program, bicycle licensing, and the Bike Master Plan.  For a complete agenda for this special meeting, click here.

Next week, in the five days leading up to the meeting, Streetsblog will take a look at the five bike measures on the agenda and breakdown what is going to be discussed and what the potential outcomes are.  Until then, have a great weekend everyone!
