Action Alert: New Manhattan Beach Mobility Plan Deletes Bikeway Implementation Specifics


The safety of cyclists in the South Bay needs your help! Please act now to preserve the progress that community members like you have worked toward for the last 7 years of the SBBC.

 The City of Manhattan Beach spent about 3 years and $150,000 towards a mobility plan aimed at moving all methods of transportation forward. The SBBC applauds the idea of a holistic approach to transportation, however the latest version has a critical flaw– it deletes actual streets and specific phases for new bikeways that were in the previous version.

In addition, all maps drawn to show new planned BIKEWAYS have been DELETED. This would be a huge step BACKWARD for a city that recently implemented two new bikeways (Rosecrans and Manhattan Ave)

3 Ways You Can Take Action:

  1. Attend the joint City Council/Planning Commission meeting this Thursday at 6pm Sharp. The city council only lets the public talk at the beginning of the meeting, make your voice heard as there is no chance to comment afterwards

  2. Email Council Members and Planning Commission who will be attending the meeting. Click Here our for suggested format.

  3. eComment on the meeting by 6pm November 18, Wednesday

Let city leaders know you are outraged that the City of Manhattan Beach would invest so much time and effort in a plan with no teeth, no streets named, and no firm commitments for new bikeways and pedestrian improvements. The city needs to show leadership, stop the cycle of endless studies, and take action like other cities on the South Bay and Los Angeles.

We need make our streets safer now!  ASK the council to commit to specific projects and timelines so that we can ride our bikes more safely..

Manhattan Beach is relying on you! #BikewaysNow

Monterey & Longfellow Ave Bikeways are going up for approval – Hermosa City Council

OCT 13| Hermosa City Council (1315 Valley Dr.) | 7pm

Some talking points that could help.

  • MONTEREY Blvd provides intercity bikeway connection from Redondo thru Hermosa to Manhattan
  • Every city that aspires to carbon neutrality has an active bikeway implementation program
  • It has been 5 1/2 years since we implemented the sharrows on Hermosa Ave.  It is time.
  • The Monterey bikeway will reduce congestion on the Strand
  • Feel free to add your own to the comments below!

These bikeways might not be approved if you don’t show your support.

We would really love to see you there, however if you are unable to come it will still be helpful if you write an email to any of the City Council members before the meeting talking about your support especially if you are a Hermosa resident.

Tuesday, August 4th: We need your support!

Supporters of bicycling in the South Bay,

We would appreciate your attendance at either the Manhattan Beach City Council meeting (6:00 PM) or El Segundo City council meeting (5:00 PM), both taking place this Tuesday, August 4th.

We need your help in supporting a cooperative agreement between Chevron and the cities of Manhattan Beach and El Segundo. This agreement would permit:

  •  a portion of the westbound bike lane on Rosecrans Ave to be routed onto Chevron property
  • installation of a bike lane on the westbound side of Rosecrans from Sepulveda to Alma.  

In addition, we want the city councils to hear from as many community members as possible about supporting the timely implementation of the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan, adopted by both cities back in 2011.

If you are unable to attend, please take a moment to send an email to your council members expressing your support in writing. Thank you in advance for your support in making biking in the South Bay a safer mode of transportation for all!
