When Manhattan Beach students heard that the city was considering adding more bike lanes, they were eager to show their support! On Tuesday, October 3rd, Grades of Green Youth Corps Eco-Leaders Maxine, Lauren and Clara attended the Manhattan Beach City Council meeting to encourage their council members to add more bike lanes in the community. Spearheaded by the South bay Bike Coalition, the proposed plan includes adding signage to create bike paths, and creating sharrows, or painted bike path markings, on streets. The plan is still in the works, but we know the city council was inspired by the amount of students and community members supporting eco-friendly transportation!
