    Any word on what happened with the bike parking ordinance yesterday? Did it stay a toothless symbol of Los Angeles’ impotence at implementing bike friendly policies? There is no info I can find online.

    I would have been there, but I’ve got this annoying thing called “a job” that keeps me away from public meetings 95% of the time.

  • LACBC will have a post up later today on the meeting. Yesterday was just a chance for the public to comment, so there won’t be any changes announced.

    Zoe Saldana is uberhot.

  • Try the LACBC twitter feed. They did a pretty decent play-by-play yesterday.

  • Michele Chavez

    I voted for Streetsblog in the poll, so sorry to hear it fell to second. Can we vote twice?

  • Josef Bray-Ali

    Thanks Chris! I was feeling like crap for not being able to make yesterday. Good to know I can still comment on the record and see it tweaked.
