Action Alert Call for S. Eliseo Improvements at Nov. 12 Workshop
A bike route is only as strong as its weakest link–and in the case of Corte Madera Creek Pathway, we have an opportunity to address the S. Eliseo on-street gap!
Of the 3.2 miles along the Corte Madera Creek Pathway between Ross and Larkspur Ferry Terminal, .7 mi. is spent sharing the road with traffic on S. Eliseo Drive. And while biking along the pathway is a pleasant, stress-free experience, riding on S. Eliseo between parked cars and speeding traffic can be unnerving.
If you ride–or would like to ride–this corridor regularly, please join MCBC in attending Larkspur’s second Community Open House for the South Eliseo Drive Multimodal Improvement Study next Tuesday, November 12. If you’re not able to attend, you can send an email to Rich Cho at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What: Attend the community Open House at the Central Marin Police Authority (250 Doherty Drive) to review preliminary designs for bicycle and pedestrian improvements on South Eliseo Drive.
When: Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 6-8pm
Not able to attend? Send your feedback to Rich Cho at email@example.com.

At the last meeting, there was broad support for traffic calming, but attendees were more divided on the subject of parking removal and bike lanes. Please voice your support for a design that 1) slows speeds to 20 MPH to create a safer, more inviting corridor for all and 2) eliminates on-street parking to create dedicated space for people on bikes!
Our message here is simple: if the proposed design isn’t safe enough for children to ride their bikes, then it’s not good enough.
SIgn-Up for email updates & meeting reminders
