Today we sent a letter to the Santa Monica City Council, management and staff in support of Safe Streets for 17th Street and Michigan Avenue. We hope you will join us and send an email with your thoughts to Council@SMGov.net


Dear Mayor Ted Winterer, Santa Monica City Council, management and staff:

Thank you for your leadership as we move toward a more sustainable, healthier and active multimodal Santa Monica. Attached is our letter expressing our enthusiastic support of the Safe Streets for 17th Street and Michigan Avenue Project and the allocation of funds to “green bike lanes” — making them more visible, safe and inviting. In particular we would like to thank the Mobility Division and Carlos Morales for their planning of this visionary project and the dedication to robust and inclusive outreach as we move toward final planning and implementation. We do believe moving the implementation to the fastest timeline feasible would be a community benefit and get us closer too achieving our cities safety and mobility goals.

Thank you
Cynthia Rose & Cris Gutierrez

Without people there is no unity or community! For this year’s National Night Out, the Santa Monica Police Department is inviting everyone, from every corner of the City, to one dynamic location! Plan to join us at Ken Genser Square on Tuesday, August 7th to celebrate police-community partnerships, neighborhood camaraderie and the diversity that makes Santa Monica such a great place to live.

Bring your appetite. Local food truck favorites will be on hand providing tasty fares at a reduced rate. Bring energy to take part in the Unity Art Project where we will “build a canopy of interconnectedness so thick it will be hard to see the sky”! Bring your pride for the community you live in and create your very own “Santa Monica Rocks!” project. Above all else, bring yourself, family and friends to celebrate diversity and togetherness with SMPD and those around you.

Let’s come together and UNITE the City!
