This Week in Livable Streets Events

0000_sblog_calendar.gifWe have a small calendar this week that is dominated by public hearings.  I guess we’re all partied out from the weekend?

Tuesday: If you live in the 2nd Councilmanic District, don’t forget to vote today in the runoff between Paul Krekorian and Christine Essel.  Both candidates filled out questionnaire for Streetsblog.  You can read Krekorian’s here and Essel’s here.  I spent too much time watching the national news.  The CD2 Special Election isn’t until December 2.

Tuesday/Wednesday: Metro wraps its hearings on the proposed subway stations that will be completed as part of the Subway to the Sea with hearings in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills.  Before the Wednesday hearing in 90210, the Westside Service Sector Council will hold a community meeting on buses.  For more information on the bus hearing, click here.  For more on the subway station hearings, click here.

Wednesday: The City of Los Angeles bids a sad farewell to the Draft Meetings on the Bike Plan as the series wraps with an added engagement in Northeast L.A.  Some of the original cast, the consultants from Alta Planning, won’t be brought on for the final showing, but city staff has been diligently working as understudies and are ready for their star turns.  The event is co-sponsored by the Northeast Neighborhood Council and the Bike Oven.  Naturally, there is some pretty sharp criticism of the plan from cyclists in NELA who have been left out of public meetings until now.  For more information on the meeting, click here.

Thursday: Metro kicks off its community meetings on the Regional Connector, formerly known as the Downtown Regional Connector.  While the meetings are kicking off in Pasadena this week, the fireworks will be held for next Thursday’s meeting in Little Tokyo.  For more information, click here.

Saturday: Cycle Chic takes on the hippest street on earth, Melrose Blvd.  Meet at Scoops in the East Hollywood Bike District at 3 P.M. and bike down Melrose to the shops west of Highland.  For more information, visit the C.I.C.L.E. calendar.

This is a big city, and I’m just one person.  If I’m missing something, or you want to promote your event, email me at damien@streetsblog.org
