City of SLO Circulation Update: More Bicycles!

The City of San Luis Obispo is in the process of updating the Land Use and Circulation element of the City’s General Plan. These parts of the plan relate specifically to creating a guide for future development, preservation and mobility (how we get around) San Luis Obispo.

This Land Use and Circulation update is part of the City’s General Plan, the blueprint for the future. It is representative of the values and vision of the community, and your opinion matters.

Our local governments know we people are interested in more bicycle connectivity in SLO and beyond, but they might not know that a majority of people want these improvements. This is your chance to have your voice heard and help increase the number of bikeways locally.

Wednesday May 16th is the first public workshop for this update, and you are invited to attend and speak up on behalf of better bikeways in San Luis Obispo. The Bicycle Coalition will be there, on behalf of our 600 members, to share our vision for better bicycle facilities in the city.

If you can’t attend the workshop, we’d encourage you to take their online survey to share your support for bicycles in the city. All responses are anonymous, and can have a large impact on the update of the plan. Take the survey here.

When: Wednesday May 16th, 6:30 pm
Where: The Monday Club, 1815 Monterey St, SLO (map)
Why: Help shape the vision of connectivity in San Luis Obispo

Mark your calendars for our first ever General Meeting. We’ll present our 2011 Annual Report, share the incredible things we accomplished last year, what we have planned for 2012, introduce our new board members, and a few surprises too!

This is a great opportunity to meet other Coalition supporters, bring a friend to introduce them to our wonderful bicycle community, learn what we’ve been up to, and hear updates on what’s ahead.

When: Wednesday February 22, 7:30 – 8:30 pm
Where: SLO Public Library, Community Room, 995 Palm Street, SLO (map)

We hope to see you there, it’s going to be a great venue to share how much we accomplished last year, and the momentum we have going into 2012 to make it even better!

Anyone & everyone is welcome to join us, the more the merrier as we share what the Coalition does to make SLO County even better for bicycles. Find further details and invite others on our Facebook page here.
