The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday – We’ve been talking so much about the strides the City has been making in becoming more bike friendly, we sometimes to forget that Metro is making strides of its own.  You can get an update on Metro’s plans going forward, including bicycle parking at T.O.D.’s, at the Planning and Programming Committee meeting tonight at Metro HQ.  Get the details, here.

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday – We’ve been talking so much about the strides the City has been making in becoming more bike friendly, we sometimes to forget that the County is making strides of its own.  L.A. County kicks off its next round of public outreach for he L.A. County Bicycle Plan.  The first two hearings are Monday in Topanga and Tuesday in Baldwin Park.  After a night off, El Segundo gets its own hearing.  You can get the details, here.

Tuesday – Finally!  The poor, oppressed, people of Beverly Hills will get their third chance to weigh in on the Route for the Subway to the Sea in the last six months.  It must be hard having so few chances to express your views.  Metro is holding the last of this round of community outreach at Roxbury Park.  As always, we have all the details at the Streetsblog calendar section.

Wednesday – We’ve talked a lot about the Draft Bicycle Parking Ordinance that would dramatically increase the amount of bike parking available as development continues to roll through Los Angeles.  Well, here’s a chance to comment directly on the ordinance when City Planning hosts a hearing at City Hall at 1:00 P.M.  Get the details, here.

Friday – At 10:00 A.M. the Full City Council will meet to, amongst other things, vote on how the city will spend its Local Return funds for Measure R for the next year.  Highighting the list is the proposal to create a Safe Routes to School plan for the entire city.  The agenda’s not available yet, but when it is we’ll post it in the comments section.
