Beverly Hills City Council Talks Santa Monica Blvd. Bike Lanes

Via LACBC:
On April 1st Beverly Hills City Council will again consider project options for Santa Monica Boulevard reconstruction. In early March, Council debated the inclusion of bicycle lanes on the city's segment of the corridor, but a majority indicated opposition. That discussion came as city staff projected a doubling of the costs (to $35 million). Given the cost uncertainty, and conflicting information about various aspects of the project, Council deferred action until April 1st.
While it doesn't look good for bicycle lanes, advocates do want to make sure street safety remains central to the project discussion. Let's remind Mayor Lili Bosse and Vice Mayor Julian Gold that earlier direction to our Blue-Ribbon design committee indicated Council consensus to incorporate complete streets principles into the corridor's redesign. Let's hold Council to that pledge. Contact City Council at mayorandcitycouncil@beverlyhills.org or by phone at 310-285-1013.
Feel free to contact Mark Elliot of BetterBike.org with any questions or comments: mark.elliot@betterbike.org.
