Moving Ahead with the Bike Task Force Recommendations

Safer. Cleaner. Nicer. Funner.

Folks that live, work, and play in West Hollywood want to reduce traffic congestion and improve opportunities for pedestrians, people with mobility impairments, bicyclists, and motorists to travel safely in and through West Hollywood.

The Bike Task Force was a group of local stakeholders, organized by the City of West Hollywood, to recommend improvements to city policy regarding bikes. They compiled a report, and in December of 2011 presented it to the City Council, which unanimously approved it. Now, we must continue to urge elected officials and city staff to dedicate resources to the implementation of the BTF recommendations, making WeHo an even more delightful place to live, work, and play.

These recommendations can transform West Hollywood and make it better for everyone, from cyclists to pedestrians to motorists to residents to businesses. Click here to join our mailing list and our campaign to make these recommendations a reality!

Here’s the full West Hollywood Bicycle Task Force Recommendations document.

And if you’re feeling nostalgic, here’s the 2003 Bicycle and Pedestrian Mobility Plan, which is the BTF report’s predecessor. And while you’re browsing city docs about bikes, you may also want to read the West Hollywood Climate Action Plan, which calls for additional prioritization of non-vehicular transportation.
