The Week in Livable Streets Events

It’s a short week, so there’s only a couple of  days worth of events on the calendar. But there are some big meetings in the week’s second half and a big ride from C.I.C.L.E. on Saturday. All events listed are open to the public.

Wednesday – The Los Angeles City Council Transportation Committee meets to discuss funding for CicLAvia amongst other things. Here’s the agenda.

Thursday – The City of Los Angeles’ Pedestrian Advisory Committee meets with a full agenda including lots of funding opportunities for the city. Read their agenda, here.

Thursday – Speaking of pedestrian advocacy, L.A. Walks and the KAOS Network are hosting a forum on pedestrian advocacy in Leimert Park just hours after the Pedestrian Advisory Meeting. Walking advocacy is heating up. Calendar Listing, Facebook

Friday – Speaking of advisory committees, the Caltrans District 7 Bicycle Advisory Committee meets to discuss bicycling on state highways, including an ongoing discussion of the PCH. Get the who, what, when, and where at our calendar page.

Saturday – WINE, ROBOTS and HOT SPICY TOMATO SAUCE! Come tour downtown L.A. on your bike and learn about places that manufacture and create right in the heart of LA! This expedition, open to all cyclists, will navigate the streets of downtown and expose riders to institutions that pride themselves on products made in the City of Angels. Calendar listing. Facebook.

    I know it’s hard to believe, but here’s a community that actually SUPPORTS widening freeways – in this case, the 71 through southwest Pomona:

    “Eskandari said when the city conducted community meetings associated with the construction of the Mission and 71 interchange the residents frequently asked when the 71 would be widened.
    Although widening the 71 would improve circulation in the city’s western end, it would also improve the flow of traffic in the region including reducing some of the pressure on the 60 Freeway, Grigsby said.”

    Meeting is Wednesday at 6 pm at the Westmont Community Center. I dare some of the anti-freeway people to go over there and convince those residents why they are misguided.
