The Week in Livable Streets Events
The week starts off slow. But once Wednesday hits, there’s something for everyone. Pedestrian symposiums, bicycling roundtables, and climate change meetings. Oh, my!
Wednesday – Metro hosts a nearly all-day symposium on pedestrian planning. The meeting starts bright and early, 8:30 A.M. in the Metro Board Room. There’s a lot of buzz words in the promotional materials, so it will be interesting to see how much weight the discussion has after the meetings are over.
Wednesday -Two hours after the symposium ends, the Metro Board Room will feature the second Metro Bicycle Roundtable. I hope they have time to clean the room in between. i haven’t seen a copy of the agenda yet, but reports out of the first roundtable were positive. For more information, click here.
Thursday -Remember the discussion on capping the 101 Freeway to make a giant park? This Thursday at 4, a community meeting will be held in the Downtown to update interested parties on the progress. We’ll have a lot more on this project in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, you can get some of the basics here.
Thursday -The next meeting on the Arroyo-Seco Bike Trail promises even more changes in the design. Remember when the trail was going to cover the entire river and have a series of bike lanes feed into it? Well, it’s slightly more scaled down now. Get all the new info at 6:00 P.M. at the Los Angeles River Center. For more information, click here.
Friday – Green L.A. hosts a panel with the tongue-tieing title of "A Changing Climate for Climate Change," which will examine the efforts to roll back the state’s groundbreaking climate change legislation. The event starts at 9:30 at
1000 N. Alameda Street. To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday – At 10:00 on the UCLA campus, the League of Cycling Voters hold its first organizational meeting before the June primaries. You can get all the info at Ted Rogers’ Biking In L.A. blog.
