This week's SGV Connect features and interview by Kris Fortin of Bike SGV director Wes Reutimann. The two discuss the progress the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments have made implementing their plan for a series of connected Greenways, a sort of "bicycle freeway system" in the SGV. A couple of years back, I talked with the executive director of the COG, but now some of the projects are moving from paper to reality.
Then, Damien talks with Misch Anderson of the Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition (PCSC). PCSC has compiled a calendar of walking events to celebrate Walktober 2018 featuring partnerships with the Jaycees, the City of Pasadena, local schools and more. We talk about some of the highlights of the week, including a rare walking tour of the Glenarm Power Plant.
SGV Connect will be back in a couple of weeks with an election preview. Until then, you can send any thoughts, concerns or questions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
