“Safe Streets” Community Meeting in Burbank

2:02 PM PDT on September 2, 2009

Assemblymember Paul
Krekorian (D-Burbank) is set to host a free forum to address safe streets on Tuesday,
Sep. 15 in Burbank. The Safe Streets Workshop will give residents an update
about Krekorian’s AB 766, the Safe Streets Bill, and what lies ahead for
ensuring local control over speed limits.

AB 766, legislation to give local municipalities
greater control over setting their own speed limits, was held in the Assembly
Transportation Committee in May after registered opposition from statewide
groups derailed support.

Despite that setback, Krekorian is pressing ahead with
a public forum to elicit suggestions for ways to make streets safer throughout
San Fernando Valley and the next steps toward local control
over speed limits. The forum will include information from state officials and
an update from local law enforcement on street safety.

Buena Vista Library, 300 N Buena Vista St., Burbank

Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 7 to 8 p.m.

While free parking is located in the adjacent lot and on the street, there are
a number of bicycle racks and the library is accessible via Metro’s multiple bus lines that run
through the area. Light refreshments will be provided, but a limited number of
seats are available. To RSVP, please call Krekorian’s District Office,
(818) 558-3043 or email
with “Safe Streets Forum” in the subject line.

Paul Krekorian represents the cities of Burbank and Glendale, and the Los
Angeles communities of Atwater Village, Los Feliz, North Hollywood, Silver Lake,
Toluca Lake, Valley Glen, Valley Village and Van Nuys. His website is
