If you want to see a safer, more civilized Colorado Boulevard be sure to voice your support at tonight’s Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council meeting. The meeting will start at 7pm and be held at Eagle Rock City Hall, located at 2035 Colorado Boulevard. If you want to speak at the meeting, you must fill out a speaker card at the beginning of the meeting.
Whatever your reasons are for supporting buffered bike lanes, the neighborhood council wants to hear them.
Or maybe you want Colorado Boulevard to be safer for bicyclists so that you don’t have to worry about a loved one when you know they’ll be riding on the street to reach a destination.
Maybe you’ve noticed more youth cycling in the neighborhood and you want to encourage their healthy lifestyle
Or maybe you’d like to take your own kids by bike to places around the neighborhood
Or perhaps you’d rather not spend 10 minutes trying to find parking at Trader Joe’s next time you need a gallon of milk
There are plenty of social, public safety, public health, economic, and environmental reasons to support bike lanes and encourage more bicycling in the neighborhood– go to tonight’s meeting and share with the neighborhood council your reasons for supporting buffered bike lanes on Colorado Boulevard.
If you can’t make it to the meeting but want to voice your support for bike lanes, feel free to write the neighborhood council at this email address email@example.com and cc the below email addresses as well so that your email reaches necessary people at the LADOT and in council member Huizar’s office.
If you are on facebook, you can confirm your attendance there.
This is likely to be the last opportunity to speak in favor of buffered bike lanes before the neighborhood council and Huizar decide whether or not to endorse buffered bike lanes on Colorado Boulevard. They will only endorse buffered bike lanes if community members show up and make their support clear.
