Hearing: LA County Bicycle Master Plan

Dear Bicycle Master Plan Stakeholder,

 

Following is an update on the progress of the County Bicycle Master Plan (Plan).

 

The County Regional Planning Commission conducted a public hearing concerning the Final Plan and Draft EIR on November 16, 2011.  Since the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was not complete at that time, the public hearing was continued to January 11, 2012.  Interested persons will be given an opportunity to testify or submit written comments concerning the Final Plan and Final EIR.

 

The Plan is currently being revised based on comments from the Commissioners, a Motion passed by the County Board of Supervisors on November 27th, and public comments received.  A copy of the revised Plan and Final EIR are available at http://dpw.lacounty.gov/go/bikeplan for your review.  A copy of the Plan and the Draft EIR that was presented at last month’s public hearing is available at all County libraries.  Computers are available at these County libraries to access the revised Plan via the internet.

 

The Regional Planning Commission public hearing details are as follows:

Wednesday, January 11, 2012 at 9 a.m.
Hall of Records; Room 150
320 West Temple Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012

 

Please contact me if you have any questions, or would like to provide written comments on the Plan.

 

Sincerely!
