I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra's bike plan: timid?

Local biking activists expressed disappointment with the first draft of the Alhambra Master Bike Plan, which calls for extenstive street markings but limited designated lates, San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports.

The proposed plan would be Alhambra's first investment in bicycle infrastructure and includes 41 miles of bike lanes and routes: 3.5 miles of class II bike lanes, which are lanes marked off on the street, and 38 miles of class III lanes, which include markings like sharrows and "bike route" signs. (Read the plan; take our poll and share your thoughts about it.)

Vincent Chang, co-founder of Bike SGV, told The Tribune the plan lacks sufficient bike lanes and misses major streets like Fremont Avenue and Valley Boulevard. The proposal includes 3.5 miles of bike lanes through Alhambra, which is 7.6 square miles. In constrast, when South Pasadena recentenly approved its most recent plan it included 7 additional miles for a city less than half the size of Alhambra.

Alhambra Master Bike Plan lead planner Brett Hondorp, of Alta Planning and Design, said the plan provides a good foundation for a city that has no bike lanes or routes.

The routes chosen were based on community input and designed to meet up with bike routes in neighboring cities like South Pasadena and Los Angeles, Hondorp told The Tribune. He added that the routes and shared road markings have proven to be effective for increasing biker safety in other areas like Long Beach.

City officials will be presenting the draft to Alhambra City Council on Monday, Nov. 19 at 5:30 p.m. at the Alhambra Civic Center Library. The public will have the opportunity to provide feedback on the plan during the meeting.
