Action Alert: Beverly Hills & bike lanes on Santa Monica!
With bike lanes in West Hollywood and Los Angeles on Santa Monica, the missing gap along this important east/west corridor is Beverly Hills.
A Blue Ribbon Committee has officially recommended to council that they widen Santa Monica and stripe in bike lanes, but the council may still need convincing as detractors have been attending meetings in the past.
Can you attend the council meeting and speak in favor of bike lanes on Santa Monica Blvd.?
Courtesy of Mark Elliot of Better Bike Beverly Hills, here are the full details…
On March 4th City Council will review the Santa Monica Boulevard Blue Ribbon Committee recommendations. The Council will provide direction on project design. The two issues to be discussed. Whether to:
(1) Widen the existing curb-to-curb width to improve conditions for motor vehicles and bicycles. This requires widening beyond the existing northern curb face. If City Council approves the widening, the Blue Ribbon Committee recommends striping the pavement for bicycle lanes.
(2) Add landscaped medians to the Boulevard.
