The City of Bishop is updating its goals and objectives for transportation in the city, with public input the primary contributor to the new draft. Dubbed the Mobility Element, part of the cityâ€™s General Plan, it will help guide the city toward meeting those objectives, funding permitted.
The city is asking for more public input on this issue that will define how people will get around the city â€“ on foot and by bike, bus, car or truck â€“ in the future.
The element covers every facet of transportation, be it sidewalks, bike paths, semi-truck traffic or pedestrian safety.
This yearâ€™s Millpond Music Festival will feature just another band from East L.A. â€“ Los Lobos. The band will close out the 20th Annual Millpond Music Festival on Sunday night, Sept. 18.
The band is best known for covering â€śLa Bambaâ€ť for the movie of the same name, but the band has been honing its own brand of music â€“ a mix of rock and roll, Mexican folklore, country, pop, blues, ethereal psychedelia and gorgeous ballads â€“ for more than three decades.
