A series of public hearings about the draft Los Angeles Bicycle Plan, which seeks to bring the city 1,633 miles of bikeways, have been announced. The five meetings (,pdf), including one to be held online, will take place between Sept. 25th and Oct. 2nd. "This is the third time they’ve released dates for hearings on the Bike Plan, and the last two times the meeting schedule was met with outrage from the cycling community after only four meetings were scheduled for a city with four million people," noted Streetsblog LA. "Because there were only four meetings scheduled again, Planning did the only thing they could and released the schedule not just on the Friday before a holiday weekend…they did it at 5:40 P.M."
