City Council Does Not Take Action on Bike Culver City's Request

The City Council did not take action on providing a letter of support to "Bike Culver City" for its grant application, though Mayor Yasmine-Imani McMorrin and Council Member Freddy Puza offered support after reading through the grant request and requirements. That application is for the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Go Human Community Streets Program. According to the SCAG website, the program aims to "build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of people most harmed by traffic injuries and fatalities".

The SCAG Go Human Community Streets Program intends to award approximately 12 eligible applicants with up to $30,000 in grant funding to support projects that implement traffic safety strategies including but not limited to messaging, education, engagement activities, leadership development, community assessment or resource distribution. The program does not provide funding to make any physical changes within the City's right-of-way. Only community-based organizations, nonprofits and social enterprises are eligible to apply. The application requires a letter of support from the local jurisdiction in which the project is being implemented.
