The Week in Livable Streets Events

There’s a lot of big events on the calendar this week.  But is any one bigger than Wesnesday’s meeting of PLUM/T Committee?

Tuesday/Thursday – I’m going to tell you a secret.  I was once showed the renderings of possible futures for the South Figueroa project.  And let me tell you, not all of them have made the Internet yet.  To see the rest, I guess we have to go to the meetings on Tuesday and Thursday.  Get the details, here.

Wednesday – Do you know the first time that the city held hearings on this Bike Plan, it was before L.A. Streetsblog launched?  It seems surreal that soon I won’t be writing about it anymore.  The Plan hits the second to last stop before being certified by the Mayor when the Transportation Committee and Planning and Land Use Committee of the City Council hear the plan on Tuesday at 3 at City Hall.  I’ll be at home, live tweeting the event so if you can’t make it there, you can follow it here.  Read the full agenda, here.

Wednesday/Thursday – Of all the rotten luck.  The local hearing on Metro’s Bus Service “Changes” for the Westside are the same night as the Bike Plan hearing.  Bummer.  There’s also one the next night in Huntington Park.  Get the details, here.

Saturday/Sunday -This weekend sees the 33rd Annual Firecracker Walk/Run and Bike Ride.  For more information, visit the official website.

Saturday – The City of Los Angeles is working on a series of workshops for improving access to Green and Blue Line Stations in South L.A.  The last of these is Saturday in Augustus Hawkins Park.  For more information, click here.

Tuesday – The highlight of the week could be our first event.  The Bike Coalition, Midnight Ridazz, and Mayor Villaraigosa announce the winner of the bike safety poster contest.  I hear they’re going to film a P.S.A. too.  As long as it’s not the Mayor teaching me how to strap on my helmet, I’m in.  […]

After a couple of really lackluster weeks, at least event wise, we have an absolutely packed week!  I mean, on Saturday the city opens its public hearings on the most recent Draft of the Bike Plan, and for many of you that won’t even be one of the three most interesting events of the week? […]

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday – Apparently there’s this plan to completely demolish Beverly Hills High School (hey, I read the Courier) that Metro is pushing that will also allow them to build a subway extension.  Weird.  How have I not heard of this before?  There are meetings scheduled from 5:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. this week […]
