MB Commissioners Unanimously Vote to Support the South Bay Bike Plan

After a year of collaboration with community members, city staff, elected officials and bike planning dream-team Alta Planning + Design, the South Bay Bicycle Coalition (SBBC) and Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) are proud to present the final draft of the South Bay Bicycle Master Plan.

This latest one caught my eye for a couple of reasons.  First off, I've spent a fair amount of time on-and-off over the past 12+ years in China for business.  I've been fortunate I believe to see in some cases first hand the steps that they have taken in addressing their infrastructure and mobility challenges seemingly head on.  It really is a case of "see a problem - then fix it".  Makes me step back at times and watch in dismay at what it what we call progress here in the States.   Yes China has money, boat loads...
