If backers obtain the required signatures, L.A. City voters will have their say this November on a ballot measure mandating implementation of the city's Mobility Plan.
The Healthy Streets L.A. initiative is the brainchild of a coalition of community organizations, so far including: Streets For All, L.A. County Bicycle Coalition, Climate Resolve, West Valley People's Alliance, Sunrise Movement L.A., Streets Are For Everyone, MoveLA, and CalBike.
According to Streets For All founder Michael Schneider, L.A. has only implemented 95 miles out of 3,137 miles of Mobility Plan features - about three percent in seven years.
Schneider is encouraging concerned Angelenos to volunteer for Health Streets L.A. - helping collect signatures, either in public places, or among networks of friends and neighbors - to make sure the proposed measure gets on the November ballot. To volunteer, sign up at the Healthy Streets L.A. website.
