Special thanks to our partner The Albright
The relaxed seaside setting is a perfect complement to the delicious menu that reflects a commitment to sustainably caught seafood, locally sourced ingredients, as well as an extensive craft beer and California wine program. The Morenas and their team at The Albright have been trailblazers in sustainability and greening efforts. This year, The Albright is celebrating their 40th anniversary, solidifying their title as the longest running restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier. CONGRATULATIONS!

About the Mayor’s Ride:
Biking (AND WALKING) is better with friends! The monthly Mayor Ride was born last year at the Breeze One year Anniversary Event with a proclamation from our City Manager Rick Cole. We led the 1st Ride with the Mayor which was joined by the California Bicycle Coalition Board of Directors in January 2017 – This free local event has continued with monthly community bike rides and walks with Mayor Ted Winterer and City Staff since January with a different theme monthly. Come meet the Mayor, City staff, and your neighbors while enjoying the Santa Monica sunshine!

Stay up to date on events all over Santa Monica and the Westside at SMSpoke.org, and on our calendar. You can also check out Santa Monica City Planning on Facebook

We look forward to seeing you there!

17th Street is experiencing an increase in the number of people walking and biking. People are using the street for neighborhood trips as well as to get to and from the Expo Light Rail station at 17th and Colorado. Members of the community have reached out to say they don’t feel comfortable walking or biking at night or during the early morning along 17th Street. The City is working towards adding safety improvements along 17th Street from Pico Boulevard to Wilshire Boulevard and Michigan Avenue from 14th Street to 19th Street to help address the safety concerns.

Goals:
The goal for the project is to address community concerns and help people feel more safe and comfortable to walk or bike. Another goal of the project is to respond to requests to have the street feel more like a neighborhood street and less of a cut-through street.

The project proposes to improve the pedestrian lighting, create better crosswalks and make people who bike more visible and better protected. Help us make 17th Street safer and more comfortable for everyone.

Please contact Carlos Morales, Senior Transportation Planner for more information, we want to hear from you!
