Representatives from several bike and scooter share companies will have their programs reviewed by the Ocean Beach Planning Board at its monthly meeting, this Wednesday, March 7th. The appearance of many LimeBikes on the sidewalks has caused quite a reaction among OBceans – not all of it positive.

Reps from Lime Bike, Ono Bike and Bird Scooters will field questions from the Board – and the public – with the discussion resulting in recommendations from the Board.

Also, there will be an update on the Catalina Emergency Pipeline Replacement Project.

The Board will then certify the annual election results (held Wed. also – see this) and elect a new Executive Committee – (Chair, Vice-chair, etc.). As this is current Chair John Ambert’s last meeting as chair, he will also be making a statement about “the state of the OB Planning Board”.

The meeting begins at 6pm at the OB Rec Center, 4726 Santa Monica Avenue.

Here’s the official agenda:

Seems like everyone hates no matter what political persuasion they fall under. I’m not really a fan of these being left all over the place but I did go ahead and try one out and they are kind of nifty. Either way form the complaints about them are pretty comical.

I think they look great when they’re parked appropriately. Makes our community look modern and forward thinking. The hundreds of rusting beach cruisers discarded around OB makes our community look like trash. There are more discarded bikes at my apt than people.

Besides, bike theft is a serious issue in OB. Fix that and maybe these bikes wouldn’t make so much sense.

At Rite Aid , (Sunday nite) they took the entire bike rack: where we OB’rs park our bikes!
The concept: good; execution poor! Its saturation all over.

Limebikes actually don’t fit on traditional bike racks because of the lower bar and the fact they lock themselves. Not sure how that happened.
