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 city’s safety and mobility goals.

Thank you
Cynthia Rose & Cris Gutierrez

Bike it! Walk it! Bus it! Week: May 7th-11th, Santa Monica

The City of Santa Monica’s semi-annual Bike It! Walk It! Bus It! week encourages kids to be active, by getting to school using alternative modes of transportation.

Póster en Español

The Santa Monica Malibu Unified School District Elementary and Middle Schools will be celebrating Bike It! Walk It! Bus It! week between May 7thand 11th! Bike It Walk It is a community institution in Santa Monica that encourages families to try walking, bicycling, skateboarding and scootering to school. Students from the Santa Monica High School Solar Alliance hosted the inaugural event in 2007, and since then it has expanded to every school in the District.

The Safe Routes to School program is a partnership between the City of Santa Monica, the District, Santa Monica Spoke and the Parent Teacher Association to reduce traffic congestion near schools and promote health, safety, environmental, and community benefits. The Bike It! Walk It! effort supports community engagement through this environmentally friendly program.  Please join SMMUSD as we bike, bus, scoot, skate, and walk to school!
