River Bikeway Advocates Meeting: Thursday June 13th 7pm FoLAR Office
- River & Bike Advocates ---
We're planning to have a meeting of LA River Bikeway advocates to look at
the current status of bikeway projects on the River and to formulate
campaigns to ensure that these projects continue to move forward to
completion. The meeting will be held at 7pm Thursday June 13th at the
Friends of the LA River office at the LA River Center - 570 West Avenue 26
in Los Angeles (Cypress Park). All are invited and welcome to attend,
though the focus will be on how individuals and organizations can get
involved in pushing for extending the bikeway - and to make sure our
efforts are somewhat coordinated. This ad hoc committee has met off and on
for a few years, and has been a collaborative effort of FoLAR, LACBC, NE
Trees, and others.
We will briefly status the various planned/funded LA River Bikeway
projects - including (downstream to upstream): Long Beach Downtown
Connector, Compton Creek, Maywood-Vernon-Downtown Gap Closure, Cornfields,
LA Downtown Connection, Arroyo Seco, Elysian Valley, Taylor Yards, Fletcher
Drive Bike Lanes, North Griffith Park-Burbank Extension, and Studio
City. (Did I miss any??) Then we will look at campaign steps for
following up for keeping priority projects on-track.
If you are interested in the River Bikeway, please plan to attend! If you
have questions, please call or email me.
