Rampart Village Neighborhood Council supports CicLAvia

January 19, 2010 at 11:47 pm 1 comment

At tonight’s meeting, January 19th 2010, the full Rampart Village Neighborhood Council voted unanimously to support CicLAvia. Rampart Village is located south of the 101 Freeway, east of Vermont Avenue, north of 6th Street and west of Rampart Boulevard. It’s directly south of the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council which already voted to support CicLAvia.

CicLAvia advocates are making the rounds to various stakeholders along a tentative route that would extend from East Hollywood through MacArthur Park and Downtown into Boyle Heights, more-or-less similar to the draft route shown here. We’re going to various Neighborhood Councils, business groups, religious institutions, and others. If you’re part of a stakeholder group in this corridor, and you’d like a presentation, contact us and we’ll send someone out!

Here’s the full text of the RVNC resolution:

Whereas ciclovía events have been successful in other cities throughout the world and the United States, and
Whereas ciclovía events offer healthy recreational activities for park-poor neighborhoods, and
Whereas ciclovía creates a safe environment for social interaction and for getting around by bicycle and on foot, and
Whereas ciclovía promotes environmentally-friendly alternative transportation, and
Whereas ciclovía events are good for increasing foot traffic for local businesses, and
Whereas the Rampart Village neighborhood is well-suited for a ciclovía route,

Therefore be it resolved that
The Rampart Village Neighborhood Council supports the CicLAvía planning committee’s proposed pilot ciclovías to be held in the summer and fall of 2010, and
Such support from the neighborhood councils, both within and adjacent to the proposed route, will aid the CicLAvía planning committee in garnering city support and funds to make ciclovía events a reality in Los Angeles.
