The Latest in PVE – We update you with weekly news coming out of Palos Verdes. Bicyclists are using many methods of protest and persuasion to get 5 BMUFL signs on city streets. We’ll continue to report on this issue.
If you want to support the cyclists in PVE, here are some options:
1. If you’re in LA, come to the city council meetings, which can be found on the PVE city website.
2. Write original letters or emails individually to Mayor King telling her why the signs are important. Her email and that of the other members can be found on the website.
3. Call the city council clerk and tell them to put BMUFL signage on the agenda.
4. Get involved in your own local council and traffic committee. The more communities that have signage, the harder it is for others to refuse to install it.
5. We have upcoming events that include more sign protesting and a die-in. People want to help can email me.
6. Make advocacy fun! We eat pizza, hang out, and have a good time.
