    Let's close Bonita Avenue to Cars and divert them to Third instead! Would slow them down and make travel much safer. Besides, what's the total delay to travel time for a motor vehicle, 1 minute?

    Force the decision-makers who designed/approved this roadway to walk and use a bicycle to traverse Foothill Blvd. under SR210 after dark some time. Please.

    La Verne wants motorists to travel at 30 MPH here, but they do not. Why not narrow the motor vehicle lane, and use the gained space for bicycle infrastructure.

    The zone in front of Oak Mesa Elementary School is very hazardous for cyclists and pedestrians. Parents dropping off kids are impatient and don't see oncoming drivers/walkers/cars.

    We need street markings where Baseline east of Fruit Street begins the curve toward Claremont. In general, bicycle lanes to connect with those in Claremont. Cars cut the curves, posing a serious danger to cyclists and pedestrians.

    Bonita needs bicycle lanes, or better yet, Cycletracks.

    Consider adding bike lane on Baseline to connect with bike lane entering Claremont.

    There is a crosswalk painted on Arrow, but to my knowledge no signs to warn of a crosswalk, nor anything the alert a driver in any way.

    Remove the number 3 lane in each direction on Foothill. The freeway no longer dumps onto this road. Use that extra lane for bike lanes and bus stops. Currently buses stop, and stop traffic. A bike in that lane forces cars to change lanes.

    Problem with left turn lane in the middle of Bonita before the intersection. When traffic is backed up and a vehicle leaves a gap for left turning vehicles a bike is vulnerable to be hit by the left turning vehicle. Many close calls with cars entering the parking lot.

    Conflict with Bus stop need to move the stop further west. It's a mess when a Bus stops and backs up traffic to the light.

    Very highly used route. Functions as a barrier to Foxglen residents, and casual riders traveling East. 3 primary options to cross (all scary)
    1. Cross all lanes of traffic going uphill on blind curve to make a left. Light will not change for cyclist and does not allow sufficien time to cross.
    2. Turn right onto Ramona, then make u-Turn to cross straight onto Baseline. Light does not change for a cyclists, there is no pushbutton to change the light, and cyclists is exposed to car making right hand turns.
    3. Continue straight, then cross all lanes of Foothill to travel through Mr. D's parking lot.

    No crosswalk exists from the SE to NE corners. For pedestrians to access the shopping center at NE Foothill/Wheeler they either need to cross 3 cross walks or walk East to Chelsea Drive.

    A steep hill, no shoulder, and a slight curve in the road leave east bound cyclists in a dangerous blind spot for drivers. Signage would be a good idea to warn of potential cyclists ahead

    this a horrible intersection! Vehicles turning right on a red light do not yield to pedestrians crossing with a green walk sign Too many times my husband and I have had to wait for the vehicle to make the turn or jump back because we had already started to cross. The drivers are too intent on beating out other vehicles, most of the time the driver does not look to his/her right but is watching cars approaching from the left. The driver will drive will drive in front of us or very closely behind us. We have had too many close calls!
    The intersection at Foothill Blvd and Wheeler Avenue is almost as bad

    Corner Transportation Park
    - Add an Active Transportation map on the South facing side of existing Kiosk. Should include walking and bicycling routes, and points of interest and services.
    - Upgrade current bike "holders" to attractive/functional bike racks - possibly with decorative features consistent with old town
    - Install water fountain for pedestrian/pets/byclists use. Should be the type that can refill reusable water bottles,, and provides a water bowl for pets.
    - bike repair stand
    - pet waste pickup bag and disposal

    Work with LA County to create multi-use connector between Sunset Ridge and San Dimas Canyon Road. Combined with new La Verne wilderness park trails, and Marshall Canyon trail would provide a foothill multi-use trail network from San Dimas Canyon to Mount Baldy Road.

    Work with LA County to create connector between Marshall Canyon Trail and Sunset Ridege Road via the future La Verne wilderness park. Would provide a multi use trail from Eastern Claremont across foothills and deeper into Angeles Forest.

    If a 5th ave. bike blvd is adopted, it can be continued here to access Gladstone, resulting in an almost full-length alternative to Bonita.
