Stakeholders from a variety of perspectives and professions will soon be brought together as working groups to provide input on proposed North Hollywood bike lanes.
In recent months, views have clashed between supporters of having bike lanes on Lankershim Boulevard in the NoHo Arts District at the cost of losing one northbound lane and those, worried about traffic and safety, that think streets like Vineland Avenue are more viable candidates.
L.A. City Councilman Paul Krekorian's office is working on organizing the meetings.
"Some people will be from the bicycle community, business members and neighborhood council members," said Jeremy Oberstein, communications director for the councilman.
The Mid-Town NoHo Neighborhood Council said it would host a town hall on bike lanes, but a big gathering like that likely won't take place until a presentation is completed comprised of findings from the working groups, Oberstein said.
He added there is no tally of how many times the working groups would meet, how big they would be and if they would be invitation only.
Oberstein said an announcement on meeting dates should be made in the coming weeks.
