Morro Bay Bike Plan Moves Forward

Last week, the Morro Bay Planning Commission unanimously approved the latest draft of the Bike and Pedestrian Plan. Next week, Tuesday February 28th, the plan heads to the City Council for a final vote!

We’ll be there on Tuesday night to show our support for the plan, and hope to see you there too! It’s been a great process for you bicycle & pedestrian supporters in Morro Bay, and we’re almost done in getting the plan approved. We hope to see you there as we ask for final approval from the City Council, it’ll be fun!

When: Tuesday, February 28, 6:00 pm
Where: Veteran’s Memorial Building, 209 Surf St, Morro Bay (map)

A Bike and Pedestrian Plan is essential for a community to be eligible for federal funding for future projects. Not only does the plan provide guidelines for bike and pedestrian projects, but it also opens the door for more diverse funding sources to make them a reality.
