HERMOSA BEACH — The City Council has authorized $4,629 for the Greg Jarvis Bicycle Rest Stop Project.
Jarvis, a Hermosa Beach resident and avid bike rider, was killed in the Challenger space shuttle disaster Jan. 28. The rest stop is planned for The Strand at 6th Street.
The Challenger Shuttle Memorial Committee has raised about $7,200 and has received commitments of donated materials and services for the rest stop, but needs about $9,000 more.
The $4,629, allocated by the council last week on a 4-1 vote, comes from county-administered funds and can be used only for construction or maintenance of bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
