Last Week’s Recap 4/7-4/13

  • Some mixed and divisive reactions at the City Council Meeting last Tuesday on Agenda Item 31: A feasibility study for e-scooter use on the Beach Bike Path. Item 31 passed 6-2 with CD-3 Duggan and CD-8 Austin dissenting.
  • The Office of Climate Action and Sustainability along with Long Beach Bike Co-Op hosted a successful Bicycle Maintenance Workshop in Orizaba Park on Thursday and learned how to care for their bikes, when to know to take them to a shop and how to change a tire. All registered attendees received a helmet, bike lights, reflectors, tire levers, a hi-vis backpack, water bottle and city bike map.
  • The Zone-In City Core Meeting last Thursday showed promising signs of better land-use, but more work is to be done to address residents’ parking concerns.
  • We held our monthly in-person meeting at Gaucho Beach last Sunday and are excited for all the upcoming partnerships and events coming up through bike month: Bike lane cleanup/mural tour, Transit Tour, and a Bike Bus to a Deforest Wetlands event. Stay Tuned!
