Your Turn: What Do You Want to See on Los Angeles’ Streets in 2010

Last summer, Streetsbloggers wrote stirring defenses of the transit-friendliness of their communities for a series aimed at finding the most transit-friendly community in L.A.  I’m hoping to repeat that success with a short series, to run the week between Christmas and New Years, on what you want to see change on Los Angeles’ streets in 2010.  There’s no limit on words, but there is a minimum.  For example, a post such as this won’t get published:

I want to see Sharrows.

The only limit on what is acceptable is your imagination.  You could write a lengthy piece on how the City of Los Angeles should spend its share of Measure R funds to balance the crippled DASH Budget; or you could write about a CicLAvia on Wilshire Boulevard from Santa Monica all the way to the Downtown.  Send your submissions to damien@streetsblog.org.

h/t to Jen Peterson who originally suggested this idea in a slightly different format.
