The Orange County Transportation Authority is hosting a bicycle transportation meeting for citizens of Buena Park, Cypress, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Stanton, and Westminster.
Bikeways Workshop #2 is 6 p.m. Sept. 11, according to this email distributed by OCTA Connections Friday. The Wednesday evening event is at the Costa Mesa Community Center, 1845 Park Ave.
Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP.
The RSVP site reads, “The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) has brought together the 1st & 2nd Supervisorial District cities, the County of Orange, and Caltrans to develop an implementation strategy for regionally significant bikeways. These agencies have been collaborating over the past several months to identify potential bikeway corridors that improve connectivity across city boundaries for bicyclists. As a stakeholder in the local community,” the site continues, “your opinion is very valuable in this effort.”
The 2nd Regional Bikeways Workshop is scheduled to allow interested citizens and organizations to provide input on the Draft Bikeways Strategy document. That means, citizens get to tell the government where they want tax dollars spent.
The document, according to this site, “will identify a set of regional bikeway corridors that connect major activity areas such as employment centers, transit stations, colleges, and universities. The Bikeways Strategy will also provide an implementation toolbox of bikeway treatments and enhancements, as well as information on bikeways funding resources.”
