Stand Up for Bikes on Wednesday, January 23!
Bike community members who live, work or play in the city of San Luis Obispo should attend the SLO Budget Priorities meeting on January 23rd to stand up for bikes and multi-modal transportation. Attendance at this event is the best way to show City Council and Staff that we need safer streets for everyone.
Unlike previous years, it isn’t necessary to attend the entire event. Attendees will be able to voice their opinions with a dot poll throughout the event. Dots will be distributed when forum attendees arrive and can be placed at various project stations during the event.
- Major City Goal: Multi-Modal Transportation (Prioritize implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan, pedestrian safety, and the Short-Range Transit Plan)
- Anholm Bikeway Plan: Design, construct, and maintain bikeway from Lincoln to Ramona & install art and lighting to enhance the US 101 underpass.
- Railroad Safety Trail: Design and construct Pepper St to the train station & Jennifer St. bridge to Iris (connecting to French Hospital Trail).
- Broad Street Crossing Improvement: Design and construct a “HAWK” beacon (a traffic control device used to stop road traffic and allow pedestrians to cross safely) at Woodbridge Street.
This year’s meeting takes place at the SLO Vet’s Hall from 6-9 PM. Our free Bike Valet will be parking bikes throughout the event so ride your bike!
