Keeping in line with being one of the best transit-oriented neighborhoods in the city, the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council voted last night to support Councilman Eric Garcetti's sharrows pilot project motion by giving $5,000 to the project. "If passed by the Council, and enacted by the City's Department of Transportation, the Fountain Avenue Sharrows route would initially run about 1.5 miles from Western Avenue on the west to the Sunset Blvd diagonal on the east--located entirely within the EHNC boundary area and connecting to an existing Class 2 bicycle lane towards Silver Lake and Echo Park," explained a statement from the neighborhood council.
