Public Forum – Sharrows on Hermosa Ave

A reminder - tomorrow, Wed Oct 20th at 7:00 PM is the Public Works Commissions public forum to discuss the sharrows that have been placed on Hermosa Ave and the potential (and planned) expansion of sharrows to other locations in Hermosa.  As of Monday, the Commission has received input from around 20 people in advance of the meeting and the results are fairly mixed with 35% in favor, 40% against and the remainder neutral.  We need active engagement of the cycling community in the discussions as well as strong support for this key initiative so please attend if you can (and bring supporters as well).   If you can not attend the forum, please submit your comments to the commission at bikemasterplan@hermosabch.org or call the Public Works Dept. directly at (310) 318-0214. Thanks and we look forward to seeing you there. Details are found: http://e-govmail.com/jbin/pages/Bike_Lane_Meeting_Oct_10/index.htm...
