2015 LA City Council Candidate Questionnaire

In 2011, the Los Angeles City Council passed the Bicycle Plan, embarking on a quest to make our city friendlier to those traveling under pedal power.  Since then, Los Angeles has made great strides toward making bicycling a safe and convenient way to travel, connecting diverse communities to make our city more liveable, economically vibrant, and environmentally sustainable.  Each Councilmember has the ability to determine what projects are advanced in his or her district, as well as a vote on citywide policy affecting all people who ride.  The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition invites all City Council candidates to appeal directly to an engaged, thoughtful group of voters--our city’s bicyclists--by responding to the following questionnaire.

We will post responses to these questions here on our blog and in our weekly newsletter to thousands of voters across the city beginning on February 3rd and thereafter as additional responses come in.  Please email responses to eric@la-bike.org.

Note: The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and cannot endorse candidates or engage in electioneering on behalf of a candidate. We are offering this questionnaire as a service to candidates to communicate with potential voters for informational purposes only.  All candidates have an equal opportunity to respond and responses will be distributed without bias in the order in which they are received.  If you have any questions, please call our office at (213) 629-2142.

Ryan Snyder and LACBC release "Remove Nothing Plan"

11/11/14 - Councilman Koretz's office responds to our action alert:

From: Jay Greenstein <jay.greenstein@lacity.org>
Subject: The Remove Nothing Plan

Thank you for your message to Councilmember Koretz regarding Westwood Blvd. bike lanes.  I would like to respond on his behalf.  The Councilmember has seen the most recent proposal shared with us by Ryan Snyder.  He appreciates Ryan’s efforts to find a compromise in addressing the Councilmember’s and community concerns regarding bike lanes while also working to create a safer pathway for cyclists.  We have responded to Ryan and have also begun the process of reaching out to City staff to determine how best to move this conversation along.  We will work with Ryan and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition as we determine a path forward.

11/7/14 - UCLA Deans send a letter in favor of Westwood improvements to Huffington Post.  

10/27/14 Update - Ryan Snyder of RSA unveils an alternative plan for Westwood Blvd in response to Councilman Koretz's opposition to LADOT's initial effort to install bike lanes.  Now in its second iteration, this proposal doesn't remove any vehicular lanes, hence "Remove Nothing Plan", but greatly improves the corridor for bicyclists with the addition of bike lanes (or protected bike lanes), green-backed sharrows, and additional signage.  Join us in asking Councilman Koretz to support this alternative - a win/win solution for Westwood.  For complete details click on the proposal below.
