The City of Santa Monica invites you to a meeting to discuss improving bicycle and pedestrian crossing on Pico Boulevard atÂ 30th Street /Â Dorchester Avenue.
When: Â Â Thursday, March 30, 2017
Time: Â Â Â 7PM.
Where: Â Â Community Corporation of Santa Monica, Community Room, 2345 Virginia Ave.
The discussion will focus on different approaches to provide direct and less stressful options for crossing Pico Boulevard at 30th / Dorchester. This meeting is an important opportunity to provide guidance and give input on this segment of the Cityâ€™s bike and pedestrian network (extensionÂ of the Michigan Avenue Neighborhood Greenway – MANGo) that connects residents to parks, work, schools, and community destinations.
This crossing on Pico Boulevard would allow direct access toÂ MANGo andÂ destinations on the north side of the 10 Freeway like Expo Light Rail, the Expo pedestrian/bike path and Ishihara Park via the Dorchester Tunnel. It would also provide south connections to Clover Park and destinations on Ocean Park Boulevard as well theÂ continuation of MANGo.
A strong desire toÂ improve bicycle and pedestrian crossing at Pico Boulevard at 30th Street / Dorchester Avenue has been identified by community members during previous Bike Action Plan and Pedestrian Action Plan outreach. Santa Monica Spoke isÂ encouraging the community to give input, get information and provide support for these proposed improvement possibilities at this meting or if you cannot attend by contacting Peter Dzewaltowski with the City of Santa Monica.
Contact Peter Dzewaltowski at 310-458-8292 or Peter.Dzewaltowski@smgov.net with your questions or concerns. More information about the project may be found on the Cityâ€™s website at HERE
