On September 24, 2011 in towns and cities all around the world people will be turning out for ” Moving Planet” to demonstrate their support for fossil-free solutions in their communities.
Here in the South Bay we have an extraordinary opportunity to embrace two ready-to-roll sustainable solutions that will improve our health, well-being and the livability of our communities. The South Bay Bicycle Master Plan and the Vitality City Livability Plan will make our streets and neighborhoods more livable by making them more bikeable and walkable. But only if we get the plans passed!
Both plans are up for city council approval in the Beach Cities this fall and on September 24 we’ll demonstrate our support for their passage at this uplifting and positive event. 
Moving Planet South Bay will entertain, teach, encourage and motivate people. It will give them an opportunity to have their voices heard. And it will allow individuals, families, organizations, groups and businesses to make a positive difference for the future of our cities and our quality of life.
Be there and bring your family, friends and neighbors as we kick-off a new era for the South Bay!
