Action Alert: Support Protected Bike Lanes for Graham Students!

The City of Mountain View is proposing safety enhancements on Castro Street from El Camino to Miramonte.  The redesign will have a huge impact to Graham Middle School students’ safety on their way to school.  The design includes protected bike lanes, in-roadway blinky lights at crosswalks, and other safety enhancements.  If you live south of Central Expressway, and you have children, this may be your own child’s route to school when they hit 6th grade.  

Please support this great project in one or two ways:

-1-

Attend a study session at 5pm Tuesday, February 9th in Council Chambers at City Hall (500 Castro Street).  City Staff will present their design to City Council and take public comment.  You’ll have three minutes if you’d like to speak, or just wear green to show your support.

Safe Mountain View will hold a meet-up outside City Hall at 4:30 for supporters to band together before the study session.  RSVP

-2-

If you can’t make it to the study session, please write a letter with your thoughts to City Council:

Below is the overall design.  For more details, look for the Study Session Memo in the agenda (Item 3.1).
