Here’s a summary:

“The OCTA Commuter Bikeways Strategic Plan Update will provide an updated inventory of all existing bikeways in Orange County. It will also identify all of the bikeways that have been proposed by the 32 OC Cities and the County of Orange, qualifying these jurisdictions for funding from the California State Bicycle Transportation Account. Strategic gaps in the existing bikeways network and key regionally-significant projects will be identified for priority funding.”

2. STEWARDS OF THE SEQUOIA KENNEDY MEADOWS WILDFIRE UPDATE

Hi Forest & Trail Lovers

The Sequoia Forest asked us to post information on two new fires the Dark & Woodpecker in the Kennedy Meadows area.

Hopefully they will be able to be controlled so they do not incinerate Kennedy Meadows as the Piute fire has done at a cost to date of over $18,000,000.

Read more here about the Kennedy Meadows fires & see the most recent Piute Burn area maps:

If you would like to restore forest health please contact Congressman McCarthy’s office at 661 327-3611 and ask how the Congressman plans to thin our overgrown diseased forest to reduce fuel loads & promote forest health.
