Provide Input on the Santa Monica Blvd. Reconstruction Project
Do you bike, walk, or drive through the Beverly Hills portion of Santa Monica Blvd.? If so, then you know how fast cars drive and how difficult it is to walk and bike along this portion.
Help make Santa Monica Blvd. safer and more people-oriented by:
- coming to an upcoming meeting
- filling out an online comment form
The third (and likely final) Santa Monica Boulevard Reconstruction Project outreach meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 8 at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Gallery on the second floor of Beverly Hills City Hall. At this meeting, the 15-member appointed blue-ribbon committee will discuss, and possibly make recommendations concerning, project enhancements to the corridor. That might include Class II bicycle lanes (or possibly an adjacent shared-use path).
Anyone interested to see SM Blvd in Beverly Hills become part of the regional bicycle backbone network should express support for bicycle lanes on this segment of the corridor (that would connect existing lanes in West Los Angeles and West Hollywood).
Online Comment Form
Beverly Hills residents, business owners, workers, and visitors are encouraged to fill out a short online form to voice your support for bike lanes and medians. Please fill this out by Wednesday, January 8.
More information about the process and Better Bike notes from the first two meetings can be found here.
