CITY HALL — Glendale will continue to be out of the running for millions in state grant funding until city officials update a 15-year-old bicycle master plan.
Pasadena recently announced an updated bicycle master plan that includes nearly 20 more miles to a bikeway network that already covers more than 50 miles. Long Beach is on a quest to become one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in nation. Los Angeles is reviewing a proposal to add nearly 700 miles of dedicated bike paths, although the plan has been stuck in discussions for years.
The Burbank City Council approved a bike plan update last year to accommodate thousands more cyclists.
“Top-class communities see biking as just another amenity that makes people want to live there and have just a good quality of life,” said Dave Kriske, principal planner for the city of Burbank.
