Featured Headline: Long Beach has been leading the way in a lot of progressive transportation programs in the last several years, and a student journalist at Voice Waves has an idea on what the next frontier should be: alleys. ”Imagine walking down the street and just as you walk past an alley, you suddenly realize that there is a huge archway. You look in and an array of bright plants, flowers, art work, fountains and sculptures are beaming back at you. This once dark, foreboding place is now an eighth of a mile that you would gladly make a detour for.” At the Long Beach Post, Brian Uluszewski agrees with the concept.
“FAST is not proposing one way streets for Victory, Vanowen, Olympic, Pico or any other street in LA County. FAST is opposed to creating new one-way streets. FAST is not reviving the previously unsuccessful plan for Olympic and Pico proposed by others over six years ago. We are working on a different proposal for Olympic and Pico Boulevards that do not include one way streets, but we are still in the research phase.”
