Last Chance to Give Input on Jefferson Boulevard Streetscape

Here is an action alert update from a fellow NBA - Francois Bar.

If you care about the upcoming transformation of Jefferson Boulevard along the USC campus, you should participate in an important public hearing tomorrow!
Tuesday, November 5th at 6 pm
Galen Center - 3400 South Figueroa, 90089
This will be your last chance to provide input on plans for the Jefferson Boulevard Streetscape.

Jefferson Boulevard is already a key part of the USC campus bicycling infrastructure and will be even more so with the University Village re-development. The area under consideration includes some of the most dangerous intersections next to campus (in particular Jefferson at McClintock and at Hoover). Jefferson Boulevard is also an essential tie between the USC campus and the surrounding community.

The newly formed USC Bicycle Coalition (USCBC) will be submitting formal comments at the hearing, which you can see here. Anyone can testify. You are encouraged to speak up at the hearing and add your voice to USCBC comments. It is important that cyclists be present at the public hearing and ask that the Jefferson Blvd Streetscape...

1) incorporate and implement the USC Campus Bicycle Master Plan
2) provide safe bike commute routes and access between campus and the surrounding community.

Background on the Jefferson Streetscape project can be found on the City of LA Dept of City Planning website (http://cityplanning.lacity.org/) -- click on "USC Specific Plan", at the top of the "what's new" column on the right. The official notice for the Open House & Public Hearing is at http://bit.ly/170kyK5.

We hope to see you there tomorrow!

Best,

Alek Bartrosouf
