A transportation planner said that when the time came, we’d have a few minutes at the mic to comment. That’s pro-forma participation, not substantive participation; it makes no difference to the outcome. The only thing we can show for our efforts is that City Council made the update of the old Bicycle Master Plan update a priority. It was a second-tier (‘B’ level) priority, mind you, but still. So the city put it on the next fiscal year’s priority list: That completion date too slipped.
In other words, the Beverly Hills General Plan doesn’t regard cycling as a matter of transportation. (Today that committee is practically moribund.) Seeing no action, we brought the old plan to the attention of the commission; we apprized City Council; and we spoke to transportation staff. But the Bicycle Master Plan from 1977 wasn’t updated.
No longer was it “prepare a comprehensive plan to create bicycle paths”; now the action item was to “develop acceptable enhancements to bike mobility.” That’s a bit of sleight-of-hand! From development of a citywide “plan” to simply implementing “acceptable enhancements.” And what does acceptable mean, exactly?
