In between working on videos on the recently opened parklets in Los Angeles, the upcoming Streetsblog mayoral candidates interviews, and catching three colds over the past month and a half I haven’t been giving Boyle Heights and the Eastside as much attention as I should.

But to catch up on what’s been happening on the Eastside, here are a few links to some stories:

Northeast Los Angeles River Collaborative awarded $2.25 million federal community challenge planning grant.

Community discusses LAC+USC Medical Center Master Plan 

Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council Planning and Land Use Committee voted to support the proposed Wyvernwood Redevelopment project

A look at weekend events:

El Sereno parklet opens Saturday on Huntington Drive.

Ovarian-Psycos Bicycle Brigade/Corazón del Pueblo host this Sunday Todos Somos Wyvernwood co-ed Bike Ride.

Save Wyvernwood potluck at the Wyvernwood Apartments on Sunday.

While a majority of my posts will be about Boyle Heights, keep on the lookout as I start expanding to other Eastside neighborhoods, including El Sereno, Lincoln Heights, and unincorporated East Los Angeles.
