BikeSGV is VERY excited to report that an ambitious new regional active transportation planning effort has just kicked off in the San Gabriel Valley!
Designed to build upon the successful 5-City SGV Regional Bicycle Master Plan unanimously adopted by the Cities of Monterey Park, Baldwin Park, El Monte, South El Monte and San Gabriel in 2014, the follow-up effort will provide local "Active Transportation Plans" (i.e. biking AND walking plans) to five SGV communities currently without: the Cities of Montebello, La Puente, Irwindale, Glendora and Monrovia.
Equally exciting, the regional effort (hereafter Phase 2) will also include a Greenway Feasibility Study to identify the 50 miles of storm channels best suited for short-term greenway development!
ActiveSGV: Get Involved
Timeline for Phase 2 is expected to run through October 2018, with community engagement in the process strongly encouraged! One easy way to do so is to take the plan community input survey, available online here.
If you'd like to sign-up to volunteer for this ambitious new regional project, please let us know here; volunteers are needed to assist with local Bicycle and Pedestrian Counts, community street audits on foot and bike, and community meetings over the next 12 months.
