Calling all people who walk or ride a bike in Glendale! There’s a new group forming called Walk Bike Glendale and everyone is welcome to join. A website is in the works (it should be www.walkbikeglendale.org) and they have a Facebook page here.
The group has been engaging Glendale City Staff and the community in the update of the Bicycle Master Plan, advocating for bike racks in the Montrose Shopping Park, and working with City Staff to ensure the formation of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee which is included in the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan. They’ve also been working on organizational details like a mission statement, their name and logo, etc. as well as setting up to be a regional chapter of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition. Members have been leading informal bike rides on Tuesday nights which are posted on Facebook here.
Get in touch with Walk Bike Glendale today and help make Glendale a better, safer place to walk or ride a bike. Contact Erik Yesayan at Yesayan (at) gmail (dot) com.
Ride and Walk in the Montrose-Glendale Christmas Parade
This year Walk Bike Glendale will lead a group of people in Glendale who walk and bike in the Montrose-Glendale Christmas Parade. In 2009 and 2010 we decorated our bikes with lights, dressed in green and red, and proudly paraded our way down Honolulu. It’s always a lot of fun and everyone is excited to ride and walk again this year. The parade will be on Saturday, December 3, 2011 at 6 pm. Contact Rye Baerg (rbaerg (at) gmail (dot) com) to RSVP or for more information, or check out the Facebook event page here.
Final Safe & Healthy Streets Plan Is Now Online
The Safe & Healthy Streets Plan was formally adopted on April 19, 2011. Since then, only a “draft” word document has been available to the public while we’ve been working on the graphic design of the plan. A professional layout with photos and links was the last step needed to make the plan a truly finished work. We’re proud to announce the final document is now online and ready to download from the City of Glendale website as a PDF here! Once again we thank everyone who helped make the Safe & Healthy Streets a reality and we hope you like how the final document looks!
