Press Release: The City of Los Angeles is pleased to release the draft 2010 LosÂ Angeles Bicycle Plan. The 2010 Bicycle Plan is a comprehensive update ofÂ the current Bicycle Plan first adopted in 1996 and re-adopted by theÂ City Council in 2002 and 2007. The 2010 Bicycle Plan (2010 Plan), aÂ component of the Transportation Element, (an element of the City*sÂ General Plan), is part of the City*s commitment to transform LosÂ Angeles from an auto-centric City to a City with a multi-modalÂ transportation system. The 2010 Plan designates 1,633 miles of bikewayÂ facilities and proposes two new bicycle networks (Citywide andÂ Neighborhood). Additionally, the 2010 Bicycle Plan includes a TechnicalÂ Design Handbook that will assist both City staff and residents inÂ selecting and designing facilities for future bikeways that are safe andÂ consistent with current standards and guidelines.
The 2010 Los Angeles Bicycle Plan is a result of extensive fieldwork,Â numbers public workshops, and suggestions from thousands of publicÂ comments received from September 2009 draft Bicycle Plan. Â The BicycleÂ Plan is a joint effort between the Department of City Planning andÂ Department of Transportation.
The complete document and maps will be available on the project websiteÂ [www.labikeplan.org] by end of the day June 18th with printed copiesÂ available for public review at the City*s Central Library and eightÂ regional libraries and the Department of City Planning*s Downtown andÂ Van Nuys Public Counters by June 30th, 2010.
