Planning Note: Tonight’s Bicycle Advisory Committee Meeting Postponed

I just sat down to lay out Carter’s piece on the RailLA exhibit Downtown and wanted to pass this on to any cyclists checking out the site this afternoon.

The regular meeting of the City of Los Angeles Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) will be postponed from tonight Tuesday, August 3, 2010 until next Monday, August 9, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. due to LAPD’s National Night Out event that will be using the entire building (see event details below).

Although the Community Room was reserved for all of 2010 for the BAC meetings, tonight’s scheduling conflict was not discovered until this morning so my apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.

At Monday’s rescheduled meeting, the City Planning Department will be presenting the revised draft Bicycle Plan as well as the proposed Five-Year Implementation Strategy. Also, the LAPD will report its recent policy and training efforts relating to bicycling. The revised special meeting agenda will be emailed in the next day or so.

Hope to see everyone on Monday evening. And of course you are welcome to attend National Night Out tonight, either at the Hollywood Station (details below) or at a LAPD Division location most convenient to you.
