Bev. Hills Blue Ribbon Commission Votes on Bike Lanes for Santa Monica Blvd.

Read the agenda, here: http://www.beverlyhills.org/cbhfiles/storage/files/7843220881104313757/01-22-14Agenda.pdf

The City of Beverly Hills will break ground on the Santa Monica Boulevard Reconstruction Project in the spring of 2015 to rebuild the deteriorating roadway, upgrade the century-old drainage system and include other much-needed street repairs. This reconstruction project includes only North Santa Monica Boulevard along the entire stretch within Beverly Hills.

The Beverly Hills City Council has appointed 15 residents to the Santa Monica Boulevard Blue Ribbon Committee to develop recommendations for enhancements that could be included along with the core reconstruction project.  The Committee's assignment includes evaluating bicycle lanes and landscaped medians.

Public input is essential to help the Committee members develop their recommendations. The Committee has held three community meetings with project consultants PSOMAS to develop possible enhancement elements for this once-in-a lifetime opportunity.  Additionally, Committee members and the general public participated in two mobile tours that highlighted the existing road conditions.

At the January 8, 2014 meeting, the Chair closed public comment and continued the meeting to January 22, 2014 for the Committee to deliberate.  The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Gallery on the second floor of City Hall.

We encourage you to continue providing your comments and suggestions via the public input form through the City’s webpage, e-mail or mail.  Written comments received by the City by 8 AM on January 21, 2014 will be forwarded to the Committee.
