#DamienTalksSGV 9: Nancy Bond of Move Monrovia

Damien Talks SGV logo

This week, #DamienTalksSGV with Nancy Bond of Move Monrovia. Move Monrovia was originally formed to help the city plan for the Gold Line Station that opened earlier this year. However, the citizen's group has continued to grow and has become instrumental in pushing the city to embrace infrastructure improvements to create safer avenues for walking and bicycling.

And the city is responding. Monrovia has quickly completed the process of creating its Draft Bicycle Master Plan that could be approved as early as the end of June. The planning process began at the end of last year. But as Bond describes, the aggressive timeline did not leave advocates feeling as though they were shortchanged by the process.

The City of Monrovia Planning Commission will meet next on June 15, and is expected to vote on the Bicycle Master Plan at that meeting. Get updates on the meeting, here.
