I am a new member of this forum. I have been lightly active in pedestrian and bicycle issues for years. I am a member of my local neighborhood counsel (SONC) committee on traffic and transportation.
We are forming a group to advocate for a public transportation tunnel in the Sepulveda Pass. We are concerned that without a solid YIMBY force, the NIMBY’s will derail it, dilute the possibilities, or stall it. Our intention is to become a force to create focus, demand, and develop a solid political base.
Our desired goals are:
- Ensure the project goes from the Orange Line in the Valley to the Purple Line in West LA;
- that the project includes a continuous bike lane from these two points (it presently goes from Mulholland tunnel to just south of Ventura Blvd).
- Identify stakeholders and build momentum.
Any support would be appreciated. At this point we are just two people, but we need help. A website is in the works, and I am considering starting a nonprofit so we can get financial support.
