The Week in Livable Streets Events

So there’s this event next Sunday.  It’s some sort of big bike ride or something….ahhhh, CicLAvia….

Today – The Los Angeles City Council Transportation and Finance & Budget Committees will meet to figure out the best way to increase the profits from the city’s public parking.  Here’s a hint, rightsize the parking fees!  Read their agenda, here.

Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday – The Los Angeles County Bike Plan hearings are rolling on.  Are they coming to a community near you?  Check out our calendar section and find out.

Tuesday – USC Urban Growth Seminars and the USC Center for Sustainable Cities will host a seminar titled: “Infrastructure in California: Legacies and Prospects.”  It looks like the kind of event I used to love to go to before I started working at home with a small child.  Sigh.  Someone tell me how it goes.  Get the details, here.

Thursday – Breathe L.A. hosts a panel discussion on the future of transit expansion in Los Angeles.  It’s a pretty interesting looking event, and unlike some other panel discussions on this issue it’s located in a pretty transit accesible place, the California Endowment Building just North of Union Station.  Get the details, here.

Saturday – Before CicLAvia, GOOD Magazine is hosting a bike ride as part of the launch of the GOOD L.A. website and email list.  Here at Streetsblog we’re big fans of what GOOD is doing (especially our friend Alissa Walker) both locally and around the country.  Find out more about the bike ride in our calendar section, and more about the launch event at GOOD L.A.

Sunday – CICLAVIA!  Get the details from the CicLAvia blog!

  • Don’t forget the BPIT and BAC meetings tomorrow afternoon and evening, respectively.

    Thank you! And thanks for participating!
