On Saturday April 5, 2014 a group of Monterey Park students and local residents joined SGV Bike Plan project staff to conduct a community street audit. Traveling by bicycle along a route identified for potential bicycle improvements by community residents at an earlier workshop, participants had the opportunity to experience and document existing conditions along a variety of MPK streets, suggest specific improvements on individual forms, and provide feedback and questions directly to staff. The group stopped at four pre-determined locations, including Mark Keppel High School, to capture notes for each section of the traversed route. One of 5 community audit rides conducted in each project city, the the activity provided an excellent opportunity for a diverse group of residents to learn more about the SGV Bike Plan project and shape the draft plan's recommendations. Many thanks to all the volunteers who made the event a success!
