Just in time for CicLAvia, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) has launched a Wiki for bike/ped planning in southern California.
You’re the Planner
Rather than do all of their bike/ped planning behind closed doors, SCAG wants to open their planning process to the accumulated institutional wisdom of all Southern California residents. Much in the way that other Wiki’s work, anyone registered can make changes to the plans. The more people work on the Bike/Ped Wiki, the better the overall outcome will be. While the final recommendations of the Bike/Ped Wiki will not be outright adopted by SCAG, they hope this tool will inform them of the needs of pedestrians and bicyclists throughout southern California and offer new and innovative solutions they may not have yet considered.
Also on the Bike/Ped Wiki is a full media library of bicycle, pedestrian, and transportation master plans for different regions within SCAG and state and national guidelines that will inform and guide the planning process. Maps, websites and methodology studies are also included.
