Our regularly scheduled monthly meeting which was to have taken place on Tuesday, October 19 is being postponed this month so that our members can instead attend an important meeting the following night in Hermosa Beach.
We ask you to please join us at the Wednesday, October 20 public forum on bike Sharrows in Hermosa Beach. The forum is being hosted by the Hermosa Beach Public Works Commission at 7 p.m. in City Council Chambers to determine the success of the bicycle sharrows implemented on Hermosa Avenue earlier this year. We urge all members of the cycling community to weigh in on this key issue.
The Public Works Commission also hopes to assess the potential of adding sharrows to other major Hermosa roadways with the help of riders and residents’ input. The following questions will assist in the discussion:
• If you are a cyclist, do you feel safer with the sharrows on the road?
• If you are a motorist, do you know what the sharrows mean?
• Have the sharrows made a difference regarding safety, cooperation and egress?
If you are unable to attend next week’s forum, please submit your concerns, suggestions and observations to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Public Works Department directly at 310-318-0214.
