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.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

The Bike Lane Cometh?: Alhambra’s Struggle With Bicycle Safety

The draft General Plan recently approved by Alhambra’s Planning  Commission recommended a heightened priority to “develop a bikeway system with input from the community, and consider adoption of a system that prioritizes rider safety in order to provide say and efficiency connectivity for bicycles throughout the city, and consider integration with bikeway systems from neighboring cities.”

The commission’s language speaks to past criticism that the bike plan map included in the General Plan needed to be more comprehensive, while keeping traffic safety in mind.

The city council will take up the draft General Plan this month.

Traffic has long been a complex issue in Alhambra. The recent 626 Golden Streets Event, which closed off many streets in the city to vehicular traffic, was deemed a success to those advocating alternative forms of transportation. But away from the 626 route, residents driving cars faced frustrating traffic congestion unusual for a Sunday.  How to keep traffic moving and bicyclists safe is the challenge for many cities, including Alhambra.

Our Leah Chang took to the streets for a perspective on bicycle safety from the local cycling community.
