Your Input Needed!!
Over the course of the next 12 months the Cities of La Puente, Montebello, Monrovia, Irwindale and Glendora will be developing Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plans to identify opportunities to improve local conditions for walking and bicycling. At the same time, a San Gabriel Valley Regional Greenway Plan will be developed to prioritiez the 50 miles of multi-purpose walking and biking paths that are most feasible to build along the region's many waterways, washes, and storm channels.
There will be multiple opportunities for the public to participate in the development of the plan, including community meetings, workshops, and walks/rides. You can also weigh in and share feedback, suggestions and comments via this online survey!

What is a Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan?
A Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan is a comprehensive planning document that guides the development of more walkable, bike-able communities. A plan typically includes goals and objectives; an inventory of existing conditions; community input to identify desirable routes; proposed roadway safety improvements; and policies and programs that support walking and bicycling as safe, comfortable, and healthy forms of transportation, recreation and physical activity.
Support the SGV Regional Greenway Network
The San Gabriel Valley has dozens of storm channels, washes, and creeks that feed into the San Gabriel and Rio Hondo Rivers. Most of them are well suited for Class I off-street, multi-use paths that can be used by the Community for walking, biking and rolling.
Driven by the input of community members and stakeholders like you, BikeSGV, a local non-profit championing the efforts to create a cohesive network of people-friendly streets in the San Gabriel Valley, launched the SGV Greenway Network 2025 Initiative in 2014, setting a goal of 50 miles of new greenway in a decade.
Glendora has the opportunity to utilize three different flood control channels, the San Dimas Wash, Big Dalton and Little Dalton Wash, to create an extensive network of multi-use trails within our own City boundary! These trails continue on through neighboring jurisdictions and could be the start to a regionally connected network of trails that would provide recreation and commuting opportunities.
Help us build support for this great effort to bring trails into our City and to continue to build the network for the region! To learn more about the Greenway Network within the SGV visit BikeSGV's website by clicking here.
