LA City Bicycle Master Plan Public Meetings
- City of Los Angeles Bicycle Master Plan Update
Public Meetings to be Held February and March 2008 at Four Neighborhood Locations
Los Angeles (January 22, 2008) - The City of Los Angeles will be holding a series of public workshops to discuss the Bicycle Master Plan Update, during the months of February and March 2008.
City of Los Angeles Bicycle Plan provides a guide to develop a Citywide bicycle transportation system. The intent of the Bicycle Plan is to expand bicycle usage through further development of bicycle riding facilities, improvement of existing facilities, and creation of bicycle support programs. Ideally, the bicycle network will increase bicycle usage in place of automobiles.
By increasing the number of cyclists who use the bicycle for transportation, traffic congestion may be reduced and air quality improved. In addition, bicyclists can experience health benefits through increased physical activity.
As part of the update for the Bicycle Master Plan, the City is inviting the public to attend a workshop. Workshops are scheduled throughout Los Angeles, at four (4) neighborhood locations, during the months of February and March 2008.
