Westside Urban Forum: Waiting for the Train

WAITING
FOR THE TRAIN

The
economy has imposed a building moratorium.  Yet, with the passage of
Measure R and possible stimulus money, Los Angeles is poised to begin the
biggest rail construction boom in a generation.  How can we ensure that
the right land use plans, development proposals, and procedures are in place to
support the infrastructure when construction starts and the projects
open?  What should cities, Metro and the private sector be doing now to
get ready?  Join the Westside Urban Forum on Friday, February 20 to hear
from some of those on the front lines who have the opportunity to shape our
urban landscape for the next generation.

SHIFTING GEARS:  Bicycle Mobility on the Westside  Friday, February 20, 2015 Los Angeles is no Copenhagen. And yet, throughout the city, bicycle infrastructure is expanding, and bike culture is exploding. CicLAvia events have given cycling center stage and attracted enthusiasts from all walks of life. The Westside, though, maintains a fraught relationship with this resurgent form of transportation.

A City for the 21st Century? Friday, April 15, 2011 Born into the middle of the last century when the car was king, Century City was designed to discourage the very things today’s urban planners value most: public space, pedestrian street life, and a sense of community.  But the freeway that was meant to serve this key […]
