LADOT Senior Bike Coordinator Meets with Residents as Part of Positively 4th Street Ride

In a sign that maybe, just maybe, the City is getting really serious about bike infrastructure, but LADOT is looking for a new bike coordinator to join Senior Bike Coordinator Michelle Mowery’s team.  Looking at the application, I would guess a lot of Streetsblog readers might make the minimum requirements.

The project coordinator is responsible for coordinating the grant-funded bike parking program, work with consultants and vendors on project-related activities, and interface with leaders in the City Council, business community and advocacy community along with other less glamorous tasks such as checking bike racks and providing audits.

If you’re interested, have a year of related experience, a bachelor’s degree in a related field, although an M.A. is preferred and can ride a bike; you should download the city’s application form at http://lacity.org/per/Application.pdf, complete it and send it with a cover letter to:
