Last night was great, and we worked out the technical glitches that lost about 20 minutes of the broadcast so they won’t happen again. Thanks to everyone who came out and we’ll have more later this morning.

    The Project Description for the Bike Plan Draft EIR for MyFigueroa and several other major bike lanes is a story that I think would have top billing and analysis on Streetsblog. I know that the story has been “done” – but local reflections alongside the routes of these lanes, interviews with Neighborhood Council members, cyclists, etc. would really make great fodder for proponents and opponents of bike lanes along these streets. If nothing else, it will provide us with an idea of the political temperament of the public and our politicians towards these lanes before the heavy lifting gets done and they go in and the complaints start pouring in.
