South Bay Regional Bike Plan
The South Bay Bicycle Master Plan was funded by Los Angeles County Department of Health’s RENEW grant Initiative in 2010 to facilitate more cycling and bike infrastructure in seven different cities within the South Bay region. The objective of this seven-city master plan is to create a bike-friendly South Bay that fosters increased mobility for all types of cyclists and improves community health through active transportation. The first resolution, which committed municipal support of increasing cyclists’ political power in the region, was passed by the Redondo Beach City Council in August 2010.
What’s Happening Now?
After that vote, City Councils in the additional six involved cities (Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, Lawndale and Gardena) passed similar resolutions. In conjunction with the South Bay Bicycle Coalition (SBBC) and Alta Planning, LACBC will conduct cycling planning and outreach activities in each of the seven cities and build support for the bicycle plans. The Master Plan will be presented to each City Council for adoption in the Fall of 2011, with outreach and implementation efforts continuing through March of 2012. We're always looking for South Bay-savvy cyclists to support the cause, so please sign up for the South Bay Bicycle Coalition's email list. For more info, go to the Seven Cities Initiative blog.
