Panel Discussion on Open Urban Space

If all the parking spaces in downtown Los Angeles were spread across one lot, more than 80 percent of downtown would be reserved for cars. And yet, two-thirds of the county's children don't have a park within walking distance of their home.

This Center Scene Public Program explores how Los Angeles uses it land and what those choices do to our health. Join us on the eve of the second annual Park[ing] Day LA, an event that raises awareness about the need for open urban space, to discuss how we can all help create healthy communities and make Los Angeles the right kind of "park city."

Panelists:

Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris,
Professor, UCLA
Department of Urban Planning

Joe Linton,
author, activist and co-founder
Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition

Emily Gabel-Luddy,
chief urban designer,
Urban Design Studio, city of Los Angeles
Department of City Planning

Moderator:
