Should Your Blog Be in the Livable Streets Network?


This summer I was asked to put together a list of blogs that would qualify to be part of the Livable Streets Network that launched earlier this week.  Currently, there are 145 blogs nationwide that are part of this new network of "the best of the nation’s bloggers on sustainable transport, smart growth and livable streets."  However, currently there are only eight blogs from the Greater Los Angeles area: Streetsblog, MetroRider, Bicycle Fixation, Gary Rides Bikes, Soap Box LA, the Bus Bench, the LACBC’s blog and LA Visions.

Of course, we’re not done collecting blogs yet.  If you thing we missed your blog when combing through cyberspace, just click here and fill out this form to submit your blog or your favorite one.

LA Streetsblog v.2 featured […]
