The ongoing saga of the City of Los Angeles Bicycle Plan continues this week with another round of public hearings/open house. For those of us to the West, the closest meeting is this Wednesday at the Felicia Mahood Senior Center [map] from 5-8pm. I encourage anyone who can make it out to come, check out what's being presented, and voice your thoughts.What you support, don't like, or want to see more of in the plan. I think it is important that we demand as much as we possibly can out of this thing, and set the bar high.When's the last time you saw a government plan exceed expectations when it came to results, especially for bicycling? So if we ask for a little, than we will get even less.
In addition to the public meetings, there is also a webinar public internet hearing, also on Wednesday. Oddly scheduled during what seems like a long lunch break, from 11:30 am to 1:30pm.
A flier with all the details can be found here. The official website, which also includes the full draft document of the plan can be found here.
