The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition and the City of Glendale were presented the Southern California Association of Governments 2012 Compass Blueprint top honor, the President’s Award, for the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan which the City of Glendale and LACBC completed in the Spring of 2011. The award was presented during SCAG’s Compass Blueprint Awards dinner on Wednesday, April 4, at the Bonaventure Hotel.

The Compass Blueprint Awards are presented in recognition of projects that demonstrate excellence and achievement in the four key elements of Compass Blueprint planning: Livability, Mobility, Prosperity and Sustainability.
“We’re honored to be recognized and we’re proud of the Safe & Healthy Streets Plan,” says Colin Bogart. “Creating the plan was a unique and truly collaborative project that involved multiple city departments, community groups, and volunteers. We’re also grateful to the L.A. County Department of Public Health’s PLACE Program for funding the project in the first place.”
