The Week in Livable Streets Events

Apparently, events don’t stop happening just because I’m out of town.

Wednesday, Saturday -The California High Speed Rail Authority is hosting meetings throughout the month on open houses for the “San Diego to Inland Empire” segment.  I didn’t list all of the events in the calendar section, just those that are somewhat near L.A. County.  The open houses kick off Wednesday at the Metro Board Room and continue this Saturday in Baldwin Park.  Get the details, here.

Thursday –  The Urban Land Institute Los Angeles is hosting the 2nd Annual TOD Summit to engage public and private sector leaders to discuss pressing transportation and land use challenges and opportunities. Get more details, here.

Saturday – As with all Folk Art Bike Tours, this ride will mix an exploration of art, neighborhoods and unique community gathering spots. This time the focus is on West Adams, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city.  Want to know more about the ride?  Click here.

Sunday – For the second year in a row, I’ll miss the LACBC’s River Ride because I’ll be out of town, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wish I could be there.   You don’t want to miss it. This year’s ride has two changes over past events.  First, they have a new pit stop in Hollenbeck park, better food and the portion of the bike path between Fletcher and N. Figueroa/Riverside Dr. is open. For more details, or to figure out which route is best for you, click here.
