The ever-so engaged Silver Lake Neighborhood Council tomorrow will meet and consider a motion telling the city their recommendations on the controversial draft bicycle plan.

Currently, the plan says there is potential for a bicycle lane for the length of Glendale Boulevard, which runs through Silver Lake, from Atwater Village to its terminus at Beverly and 1st. Today, bicycle lanes can be found on Griffith Park Boulevard, between Los Feliz Boulevard and nearly making it to Sunset Boulevard, where heavily traveled bike lanes can be found. Silver Lake Boulevard also has lanes between Glendale and Sunset Boulevards.

The draft plan says there is also potential for lanes along Silver Lake Boulevard until it ends at Beverly Boulevard, and then continuing towards the Vermont/Beverly Red Line station. Some neighborhood councilmembers agree, asking the full board recommend that the city follow through with the lane, changing it from a "potential" lane to a "proposed" one.
