Culver City Bicycle Action Plan to be Updated in 2018
Martin Feinberg, Realtor, is glad to see that the City of Culver City is updating its Bicycle Action Plan and is seeking input from residents. The current plan was adopted in 2010, and at the time, featured many important improvements, including new crosswalks, five miles of new bike lanes, and safer routes to school. The Culver City Real Estate area has continued to grow however, and a new plan is needed to accommodate all of the changes that have happened and will continue to happen.
According to the Culver City’s website, “Changes have occurred in our community: the Expo Line opened to Downtown Los Angeles and was extended to Santa Monica, we have recovered from a recession and are seeing new jobs and housing growth in many parts of the city, and biking and walking to school and work have grown too. To accommodate all of these changes and prepare for the future, we need a new plan. To help us with this effort, the City has hired a team led by Alta Planning + Design to engage our community and develop ideas to take Culver City’s walking and biking infrastructure to the next level. At the direction of Council, we are also exploring Vision Zero, which is an international initiative to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured in traffic collisions.”
Martin Feinberg, Culver City Realtor, encourages concerned citizens to make their voices heard. To participate in revising the Bicycle Action Plan, residents should visit culvercity.bikepedplan.com.
Per that site, “Throughout 2017 and 2018, we are asking for the public’s input and inviting residents and visitors to help shape our plan in a variety of ways. The project includes identification and prioritization in the winter of 2017, followed by conceptual planning in the spring and summer of 2018. The plan will be finalized and adopted in December 2018. This project depends on community feedback and support for successful.”
