Subject: [Cycle Santa Monica!] Tragic Santa Monica Farmers Market accident
could have been prevented...
Importance: High

The Tragic Farmers Market accident could have been prevented had the city

kept on track with recommendations to designate Arizona Ave as a "Bicycle

Blvd", as indicated in a memorandum to the Santa Monica Planning

Commission.(ref:

http://www.santa-monica.org/planning/commission/agendas/pc1994/ps94051808-B.

html ).



Arizona avenue's designation as a "Bicycle Blvd" was dropped from the final

draft of Santa Monica Bicycle Master Plan (date Jan 1995). Had it been

designated as a "Bicycle Blvd" it could have prevented this tragic accident.



A Bicycle Blvd was recommended by the Planning Commission in a memo dated

May 18, 1994(ref:

http://www.santa-monica.org/planning/commission/agendas/pc1994/ps94051808-B.

html ). Perhaps now might be a time to re-open this topic for

reconsideration by City Council to turn Arizona from 4th to Ocean or from

4th to 2nd street. That would eliminate most of the risk to the public

during Santa Monica's lucrative and world famous Farmers Market. Making it

into a bicycle blvd would create protective bollards to pedestrians,

Skaters, and bicyclists who would have exclusive use of Arizona from 4th to

2nd street.
