Help make Santa Monica Blvd. safer and more people-oriented by:

  1. coming to an upcoming meeting
  2. filling out an online comment form

Upcoming Meeting

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).

Santa Monica Blvd. Reconstruction Project Outreach Meeting
When: Wednesday, January 8; 6 p.m.
Where: Beverly Hills City Hall, Municipal Gallery, 2nd Floor – 455 North Rexford Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

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.
