Things are coming together fast. In addition to the Monday night bike committee meeting, Tuesday night there will also be a specific committee meeting on Santa Monica Ciclovia proposal, to start ground work for planning, also at the Ken Edwards Center, from 6-8pm. The same evening, as a final item on the agenda, the City Council will also be discussing moving forward with Ciclovia. If you’re local and not going to the event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, there are great opportunities here to voice support for bringing a Ciclovia to Santa Monica. I’m pretty amazed actually how quickly this is all coming together, and have to hand it to Richard McKinnen (and McKeown for appointing Richard to the parks commission) for being a big part of jump starting this.
On Monday night is the first public meeting of the newly formed bike committee of the Santa Monica Recreation and Parks Commission. Committee members Phil Brock and Richard McKinnon (also on Spoke steering committee) will be putting together an agenda of bike issues to be brought before the rest of the commission and eventually the council. If you have praise, complaints, suggestions, or general input on cycling issues in Santa Monica, Monday’s meeting will be an official avenue for such input.
The Bike Committee of the Santa Monica Recreation and Parks Commission is meeting:
7 pm Monday July 26 at the Ken Edwards Center
