The Week in Livable Streets Events

sblog_calendarSchools are on their Spring Breaks, most Council meetings are in recess, so our schedule is a little on the light side.

  • Wednesday – L.A. City’s Board of Public Works discusses mitigation measures for tree removal for construction of Metro’s Crenshaw line. A joint neighborhood council task force has been negotiating with Metro and the city of Los Angeles. The community is pressing for robust tree replacement, including maintenance commitment. The item has been postponed from today’s BPW agenda; agenda for the Wednesday 9:30 a.m. meeting should be available shortly here.
  • Wednesday, Thursday – The Metro Board of Directors’ host their committee meetings to discuss what will be discussed at next week’s Metro Board hearing. The agendas look a little light to me, a claim that bike share contracts could be released in May is the highlight that I can tell, but sometimes local transit reformers chime in with something I missed. Regardless, you can read all about them, here.
  • Thursday – The City of Los Angeles hosts an online primer for those interested in finding out how it’s doing implementing the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2010 Bike Plan. How are they doing? What does the future hold? Find out Thursday at 7 p.m. Get the details on Facebook.
  • Saturday - Pacoima Beautiful is programming a street closure at Bradley Street between Van Nuys Boulevard and San Fernando Gardens from 10 am to 4 pm as a demonstration of what the area would look like if they had a plaza instead of street. The demonstration is part of a future People St application, so you could be seeing the future. Part of the plaza event includes an “interactive planning” session with James Rojas and two live models presented throughout the day on topics such as “Pacoima Wash 2050″ and “Plan your own Plaza.” The interactive modeling is part of a #LA2050 Listens series.
