The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday – Join LACBC, Elly Blue, Joshua Ploeg & Joe Biel for the “Dinner & Bike Tour.” Admission is FREE to the downtown LA event thanks to the generous sponsorship of Flying Pigeon. More infop, here.

Tuesday – Wednesday – Much of the work that happens in committee is actually more important than what happens at the full Metro Board Meeting next week.  The committees meet Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and you can access all the agendas here.

Tuesday – The City Council Planning and Land Use Committee will meet to, amongst other things, vote on the city’s Draft Bicycle Parking Ordinance for new development.  The full agenda isn’t online yet, but we do know the meeting will be in room 350 and will begin at 2:30 P.M.

Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee will meet to discuss making safe intersections that used to have red light cameras, new appointments to the taxi and transportation commissions and other issues.  You can read the full agenda, here.

Thursday – Is L.A. the Capital for low/zero emission vehicles?  The Breathe L.A. Symposium takes a look.  Get the details, here.

Thursday – The City of Los Angeles Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets at 2:00 P.M. in the Caltrans building Downtown.  Get all the details, here.

Thursday – The County of Los Angeles holds a hearing on the environmental documents for the county Bike Master Plan at 7:00 P.M.  Can’t make the meeting, get the details on how to write in comments, here.

Friday – Is Park(ing) Day.  I know that the map usually fills up a lot in the last week, but it’s looking a little sparse.  C’mon L.A.!  Long Beach is kicking our butts with 1/10th the people.  For more info on Park(ing) Day, check out the Park(ing) Day L.A. website.  To sign up a space, click here.

Saturday – ArtCycle is a street fair with a decidedly do-it-yourself artistic twist. Everything from the planning to setting up to holding the event is done with grass roots participation by denizens of East Hollywood, one of the most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles.  Get more details, here.

Saturday – CICLE sponsors the “Made in L.A.” Bike Tour.  Take a trup through Downtown and beyond to see many of the manufacturing companies in L.A.  Get more details, here.

  • Yay PARKing Day!

  • Pacoima Beautiful will be having a PARKing Day out in front of the Pacoima Branch Library on Van Nuys Blvd.!
