On December 15th the South El Monte City Council became the 5th and final project City to formally adopt their city-section of the San Gabriel Valley Regional Bicycle Master Plan! The Council's unanimous vote in favor of the plan left the project with a perfect, 25-0 record by local leaders.
A huge thank you to all the members of the public, city staff, public health professionals and other supporters who shepherded this project from an idea in 2010 to a funded project and finally an adopted plan.
Although project funding for this effort was cut short by the US Congress, ending prematurely in September 2014, we are confident the final plan's many supporters will help ensure that implementation moves forward even without dedicated staff to assist the 5 project cities. However, that will only be possible if local residents like you continue to stay active and support the development of safer, more bicycle and pedestrian friendly streets!
Stay tuned and stay involved!
