The Week in Livable Streets Events

There’s a good diversity of events on the calendar this week:Expo Design, bikes and Metro, the Streetcar, Critical Mass. Enjoy.

  • Tuesday – The Department of City Planning is hosting a pair of community workshops to discuss how Expo can improve the West L.A. communities where it will travel. The first is this week and is located near the future Palms Station. The next is a week from today and will be more focused on the Sepulveda Station. Get the details, here.
  • Wednesday – The agenda I have is a little lacking in specifics, but the Metro Bicycle Roundtable is back. It looks like they’re going to discuss Metro and bicycles. No word if there will be a discussion of roundtables. Get the who, what, when and where, here.
  • Thursday – Do you want to have lunch and talk about the proposed Streetcar for Downtown? Shiraz Tangri, Legal Counsel, Los Angeles Streetcar, Inc. will speak at Town Hall about how a streetcar can help create a better connected, more vibrant downtown. This November, downtown residents will vote on whether to approve a community facilities district that will tax property owners to fund the LA Streetcar project. It costs $25, which seems steep to me for a BYOB lunch event, but it should prove interesting. More details, here.
  • Friday – Critical. Mass. 7:00 p.m. Wilshire/Western
  • Sunday – Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Ahh, it’s the first of our Holiday themed events on the calendar. The LACBC holds it’s Holiday Tour de Taste at 9:00 a.m. in Culver City. Enjoy.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.

Today! – We’ll be broadcasting a discussion on the mayor’s race and Streetsblog’s coverage strategies going […]
