It's no secret that bike adoption is growing in our community - especially ebikes. Residents have been complaining about their operation since early in the pandemic.
Late last year the Chamber and the Civic Council began working collaboratively to develop a list of improvements the County could implement to make bike transport safer in Ladera Ranch. We noticed streets that were missing bike lanes completely when they seemed wide enough to accommodate them.
In February, we submitted a comprehensive list of locations with recommendations for improvements from the easiest to implement to the more difficult requiring funding and engineering. We will detail all of those requests in a subsequent posting.
The county, under Supervisor Lisa Bartlett's leadership, responded and here is the first of those proposed charges. Residents are encouraged to provide feedback.
We think you'll agree that the changes are necessary and will result in the safer co-existence between cars and bicycles!
