2010 Bicycle Plan Update – Hearing Notice

September 10th, 2010

2010 Bicycle Plan Update Public Hearing

LA City 2010 Bicycle Plan Webinars-July 22, 2010

July 17th, 2010

We’re very pleased to announce that the Department of City Planning is hosting its first-ever citywide “webinars” on Thursday, July 22, to give you the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the City’s new Draft Bicycle Plan and Five-Year Implementation Strategy. From San Pedro to Chatsworth, Venice to Boyle Heights, bicyclists and community members will be coming together on-line, from their own homes, to learn about the steps Los Angeles is taking to become a bicycle-friendly city. We hope that you’ll help spread the word about these pioneering web-based public meetings to your membership/readership.

Session #1: 2010 Bicycle Plan
Thu, Jul 22, 2010 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM PDT
The 2010 Bicycle Plan serves as the City*s blueprint for meeting the needs of all bicyclists and is intended to increase, improve and enhance bicycling in the City as a safe, healthy, and enjoyable means of transportation and recreation. The 2010 Plan designates over 1,600 miles
of bikeways and creates a blueprint for the development of the Citywide and Neighborhood Bikeway Networks. The pair of bicycle networks use designated city streets and bicycle paths to provide continuous bicycle access across the entire City.

Session #2: Five-Year Implementation Strategy
Thu, Jul 22, 2010 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM PDT
The implementation of physical improvements will be coordinated through the Five-Year Implementation Strategy identified in Program 1.1.2 C within the 2010 Plan. The Five-Year Implementation Strategy calls for
the implementation of 200 miles of bikeways every five years. The 200 miles will be determined through input from the public, Council Offices, and City Departments, focusing on closing the gaps in the Citywide and
Neighborhood Bikeway Networks. This webinar will present an overview of the Five-Year Implementation Strategy and introduce the 200 miles which are proposed for the first five years and in particular identify the
approximately 40 miles that will be built in each of the five
consecutive years.
The Department will also be holding regional public workshop/hearings on the Plan in September. For more information, visit
