You can help in these 2 ways:
Email Coastal Commission by Friday, June 1
The Coastal Commission will hear neighbors' appeal of bike hub installations planned for the coastal zone at their June meeting. Emails from you and others are important to let the Commission know that many of us value the natural beauty of the coast and commercial bike rental hubs should not be located in the coastal zone. Numbers count!
Email Commission staffer by June 1 or before at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Our focus is to oppose installation of bike rental hubs in the coastal zone which concentrates nearly one-half of bike share inventory to launch directly onto the coastal pathway, denying access to pedestrians and others needing more time and space to maneuver on the already crowded path.
- The bike share program in Santa Cruz will be successful without using the coastal zone area for bike hub installation.
- Urge the Commissioners to protect access for those who use the coastal pathway on West Cliff, including pedestrians, families with young children, and seniors.
- Close your email by plainly stating: Our hope is that Commissioners will deny all permits to install commercial bike rental hubs in the coastal zone of Santa Cruz.
