The Week in Livable Streets Events

Another long week of meetings, but look at Friday!  Doesn’t that look like a fun event?!?

Monday – The Westside Mobility Plan is holding a series of open houses, one per Monday for three weeks, to update Westsiders on the Plan.  Their current focus is on rail to the Westside.  I wonder what they could possibly be talking about?  Get the details on all the meetings, here.

Monday – Internationally-renowned landscape architect James Corner is giving a talk on the “intersection” of open space and urban design in the Santa Monica library. The event is free and open to the public.  Get all the details, here.

Tuesday – The Los Angeles City Council will meet to decide, amongst other things, the fate of the Wilshire Bus Only Lanes and a temporary appointment of Jaime De La Vega to LADOT General Manager.  Get more details on the meeting, here.

Tuesday – If you missed Sunday’s reading of Stop Signs at the Flying Pigeon, you get a second chance to meet the authors Tuesday at the Eco-Village.  Get all the details, here.  Even if you’re not planning to make the event, you should click on the link to check out their creative press release.

Tuesday, Wednesday – The Metro Board doesn’t meet until next week, but a lot of the work gets done this week at committee.  All of the Board Committees meet this week on Tuesday and Wednesday.  Before you go rifling through the agendas, I’ll let you know…I didn’t see a sign of a promised Ridley-Thomas motion on Leimert Park.  Read all the agendas, here.

Friday – Finally, Streetsblog rolls back in to the Flying Pigeon Bike Shop for our second annual ride and party.  Come hang out with us and raise some funds to keep us going strong.  Get more details on the ride at our calendar section or Facebook.

Saturday – Ninth Grade Students from the East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy (ELARA) will be presenting their park designs. These students explored the look, feel, and layout of three, diverse parks across the city. Then they worked in teams to design their ideal parks. They designed and built wonderful models for their parks using a grain of rice as the scale.  Get more details, here, or look at some pictures at Flickr.
