Buffered bike lane in the City of Long Beach
Several years of hard work by BikeSGV's all volunteer team has paid off with the award of a 3.5 year HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) grant to fund the development of a regional bicycle master plan in the San Gabriel Valley in project years 1-2, and a youth-focused bicycle cooperative in year 3.
In the coming weeks the list of participating communities will be finalized, with each set to receive a bicycle master plan, educational outreach, and assistance with project implementation, all free of charge. More detailed information about the plan, its goals and next steps will be presented by regional plan Project Manager Javier Hernandez at the Monterey Park Transportation Summit on Saturday, June 1 (9-11am), at George Elder Park Community Center, 1950 Wilcox Avenue, Monterey Park, CA 91754.
Especially if you live, work, or ride in the potential project communities - Monterey Park, San Gabriel, Baldwin Park, El Monte and South El Monte - you can participate at this stage by attending City Council meetings in the coming weeks, when local decision makers will have final say whether their communities participate.
