LA Streetcar Video Project: This Is My Downtown

We’re making a video about you and your Downtown.

On Saturday May 29th, 2010, goLAstreetcar
is hosting an all-day event to capture your feelings and thoughts about
a better Downtown – one where the streetcar is a catalyst for
sustainable urban living.

We want to get you on video talking about your vision for a
revitalized Downtown Los Angeles and how the streetcar will make it
happen. How do you see Downtown evolving? What are the greatest
opportunities for Downtown?  What are the biggest challenges we’ll face?

All participants MUST RSVP for the event.  Due to limited time and
resources, we may not be able to interview everyone who volunteers, so
RSVP soon! Interviews will take approximately 10-15 minutes.
The filming location will be located in Downtown L.A. and will be
announced via email to those who RSVP. Please
fill-out the survey below and we will contact you with further details.
And don’t forget to show your support by joining our Facebook Page or Following us on Twitter!

Thank you!

If you can’t make it, that’s ok! Contact Eric Metz directly at emetz@lastreetcar.org to see about other opportunities.

Be Traffic! The good kind, though, because it’s Bike Week. It’s that fresh springtime week when some entities that do very little for bikes most of the time talk about how much they do for bikes, while finalizing their budgets that contain nearly nothing for bikes. Smile for the camera! It’s also a good time […]
