City of Compton Planning Commission solicits input for cycling master plan.
COMPTON—The City is seeking input from residents, community groups, stakeholders, and others interested in improving bicycling conditions in Compton. An online survey for the Bicycle Master Plan is open and will allow community members to participate in the decision-making process.
Residents are encouraged to visit the city’s website: www.comptoncity.org to fill out the survey and help improve the cycling environment in the city.
The Compton Bicycle Master Plan will engage residents and visitors around healthier and more sustainable living through the development of a comprehensive bikeway network. The Plan seeks to promote cycling as a safe and attractive transport choice while increasing connections to the existing bicycle network, including links to the Compton Creek and Los Angeles River paths. When complete, the Bicycle Master Plan will position the City to pursue grant funding to implement the recommended network and programs.
“The City of Compton is committed to ensuring that pedestrians, transit users, bicyclists and motorists, can all travel safely and comfortably along and across a street as a part of our vision to make bicycling an integrated part into daily living in the city. Our hope is that this new Bike Plan will give [residents] of all ages and abilities safer, cheaper, and healthier travel options,” said Mayor Aja Brown.
The city will host public workshops at scheduled Planning Commission meetings in city council chambers at 205 S. Willowbrook Ave. to solicit input for the plan and present preliminary findings of opportunities and constraints for a complete bikeway network. Following the public workshop and online survey, the city will develop a recommended cycling infrastructure and programmatic improvements.
