Yorba Linda Visioning Festival

The City of Yorba Linda announces a 3 day Visioning Festival to update their General Plan, and their Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Starting 6/21 and ending 6/23, the Festival will provide walk-about tours of two parks, and workshops to present planning information, and to solicit your input to the general plan process.

Yorba Linda is ranked 7th  for cyclist fatalities.  Actually, it is tied for 7th with the cities of  Dana Point, La Habra, Laguna Beach, and Lake Forest with 3 cyclist fatalities in each city for the years 2001-2012.

In terms of cyclist injury, Yorba Linda ranks 23rd, with 87 cyclist injuries over the same time frame.

The major cyclist violations were: right of way, and riding on the wrong side of the road (?). Cyclists were also cited for traffic signals and signs, and improper turning infractions.

Would having a bike plan have made any difference in cyclist fatalities and injury? We may not know the answer to that, but we do know that if there is to be a healthy, vibrant community in the future, a Bike Plan is certainly a needed component to the General Plan.

Help Yorba Linda incorporate the best of all possible worlds with a Bike Plan.  This is your chance to have a say, and directly influence your children’s future, and the future for those to come.

At the workshops ask about Safe Routes to School, Complete Streets, and how the generation of tomorrow will be made better by your actions in advancing a Bike Plan today.
