Announcing our new Bike Plan Documents page! Communities for Transportation Choice is beginning to receive and post documents we’ve received from our public records request. To view bike plan documents, see this page. We’ve posted our records request letter here.

We wish to publicly thank the Los Angeles Department of City Planning (DCP) for providing us these documents. Thank you to DCP’s helpful staff including Jordann Turner, Beatrice Pacheco, and others, and to DCP General Manager Gail Goldberg.

We understand that many municipalities are facing budget crises and can’t always afford to get public documents out to the public. So CTChoice is doing our part to help the city to increase its transparency and to foster a healthy civic dialog, by publishing documents that will help the public learn about the city’s  bike plan process.

CTChoice is currently an all-volunteer group. We’re looking for additional volunteers to help out, and, of course for donations to defray our costs. Though we requested documents electronically, so far, all we’re getting is photocopies of paper documents. Every photocopied page costs us 10 cents, then paper pages need to be scanned and posted. If you’re willing and able to help scan documents (especially if you have access to your own scanner, espcially scanners convenient for multi-page documents), please contact us. Information to contact us and/or donate is at the bottom of our about page.
