Featured Headline: Is this the end of the City’s promise to set aside 10% of its Measure R local return for bicycle and pedestrian projects?  We’re looking into it.

Featured Headline: The Beverly Hills Courier responds to the Source’s response to the Beverly Hills Couriers response (link no longer available) to the seismic and geological studies that pretty much demolished any chances that the Westside Subway would ever have a stop at Santa Monica Boulevard and Avenue of the Stars.  I’ll give you a preview, the Courier isn’t taking Metro’s claims lieing down.

    Correction, the Santa Monica Daily Press did nothing except publish a column by Jon Coupal, the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.  Unsurprisingly, he is against the spending of any public monies on anything, anywhere, anytime.

    Also, here’s a better link for the Santa Ana murder-by-SUV story:

    Damien, re: Mayor’s Measure R proposal – the article states that “The mayor’s office said it has no current plans to borrow against an additional $600 million of local Measure R money earmarked for bicycle, pedestrian and other city transit projects.”  Glad you are looking into it anyway.

  • You are correct.  The Mayor’s office has confirmed that this does not impact the bike/ped set aside.
