Santa Monica’s oceanfront is a prized asset and one of the most publicly-accessible beaches in the country. The City of Santa Monica has invested heavily in equitable beach access for non-motorized users, encouraging a paradigm shift away from automobile reliance. This WalkShop will highlight the new California Incline bridge and Pedestrian Overcrossing and the City’s proposed Local Coastal Program aiming to diversify access options. We’ll also see number of projects and activities that improve access to the beach, including the Bike Center, Pier Bridge Reconstruction, and Beach Bike Path expansion. Sun, beach, and bikes – welcome to Santa Monica.
Participants in this WalkShop are welcome to stay in Santa Monica for the afternoon if travel plans permit. The City of Santa Monica staff will provide guides and recommendations for those who want to venture around solo.
