City of Beverly Hills to Host Community Meeting for Draft Complete Streets Plan
The Virtual Meeting Will Take Place on December 6
Beverly Hills, CA – The City of Beverly Hills will host a community meeting to discuss its Draft Complete Streets Plan on Sunday, December 6, 2020, at 1:00 PM.
The meeting will be facilitated by Dr. Sukhsimranjit Singh, who serves as the Judge Danny Weinstein Managing Director of the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University Caruso School of Law, as well as Associate Professor of Law and Practice and directs the LL.M programs. Dr. Singh has worked with the City in the past to successfully facilitate meetings for the Rent Stabilization program.
The Draft Complete Streets Plan is a mobility policy plan that includes a comprehensive analysis of pedestrian, bicycle, street networks, and emerging transportation modes and technologies. Once final, it will provide a Council-approved work plan for transportation planning projects to improve mobility, help prepare for emerging technologies, prioritize first/last mile improvements to the Metro Purple Line stations, and increase grant funding eligibility.
The City released the current version of the Draft Complete Streets Plan for public review in November 2019. The Traffic and Parking Commission discussed the Draft Plan at a Traffic and Parking Commission Special Meeting/Town Hall on December 3, 2019. A second community meeting was intended to be conducted in early 2020, but the meeting was postponed due to the pandemic.
This virtual meeting was recommended by the City Council/Traffic and Parking Commission Liaison Committee to build consensus on issues raised on a few of the Draft Plan sections during the planning process before taking the plan forward to City Council.
Virtual meeting log-in details will be provided on the City’s calendar later this month at beverlyhills.org. Please save the date for:
