Villaraigosa Talks About Safe Streets for Pedestrians in State of the City

Earlier this week, Mayor Villaraigosa gave the annual State of the City address and for the first time it discussed a future with reduced auto dependency.  The following paragraph appears as part of a larger discussion of the Mayor's Clean Tech Corridor initiative.  It's not much, but it's more than last year:

The Clean Tech Corridor will rest alongside the Cornfields Arroyo Seco– the first and only LEED-pilot neighborhood by any big city in theUnited States of America.  A cluster of pedestrian-friendly streetssitting along public transit lines.  A model for future communitieswhere residents walk more, drive less  and have access to quality jobsand affordable housing.

For more on what a "Clean Tech Corridor" actually is and what it could mean to L.A.  Check out this post at blogdowntown by Eric Richardson.
