Save NELA Bike Lanes!

Just a quick reminder: there are two important community meetings coming up this week, tomorrow and Thursday. If you live, work, shop, or ride in Highland Park or Eagle Rock, or care about the future of LA’s streets and the people who live and make their living alongside them, don’t miss these events!

The opposition, though always a minority in the community and at these meetings, is well-organiZed and noisy, and the City has a history of letting itself be frightened into backpedaling on bike projects by these people. There will be a lot of sarcasm, unfounded assertions, and outright misrepresentations being thrown about, and we need you to be there to represent the beneficial realities of accommodating and encouraging bicycling and walking infrastructure, over a continued pandering to tax-draining, community-crushing motoring obsessions.

Be there, be informed, and speak civilly; stick to the positive; and show them that we care about the neighborhood’s wholeness more than about cut-through convenience for speeders.
