Coming Tomorrow: City Council "All Day" Transportation Meeting

Back in November, the City Council announced it was ordering a new city-wide transportation plan for the City of Los Angeles. Since its announcement, there hasn’t been a lot of news about the report. Residents have been able to weigh-in on what they want to see done in LA through a website set up by Transportation Committee Chairperson Wendy Greuel, but nothing else has really happened.

Tomorrow, that changes, when the entire City Council hold an "all day" public hearing to discuss transportation issues. Detailed reports (which are/will be available through the committee schedule) will be given by the DWP, DOT, Bureau of Street Services & Engineering, and the Department of Planning. There will also be an opportunity for public comment.

I’ll be there to take notes and report back tomorrow night, but for those that are interested, the meeting will be at 10 A.M. in the general council chambers down at City Hall starting at 10 A.M.
