Bicycle Infrastructure Projects, Programs and Policies
Bike SGV and Day One, a nonprofit health advocacy organization, are partnering with five cities – San Gabriel, Monterey Park, Baldwin Park, El Monte and South El Monte – to develop a regional bicycle master plan in the San Gabriel Valley. Earlier this year, Day One was awarded a grant through the Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) initiative of the LA County Department of Public Health. ALTA Planning, a nationally renowned bike and pedestrian planning firm, was selected to help Day One and the partner cities develop the bike plan.
The regional master plan will guide the development of bicycle infrastructure projects, programs and policies. Each individual city will also be adopting its individual bicycle master plan. In the coming months, Day One, ALTA Planning and City staff will be coordinating community outreach events to gather community input and identify desirable routes. We will also be conducting bike counts to get baseline data. Adopting the plan allows the City to prioritize infrastructure projects and identify potential funding sources for implementation.
