The Week in Livable Streets Events


This is an interesting week, as there’s a lot of important, but very different, meetings and events on the calendar.

Tuesday: The Transit Coalition features Expo Construction Authority CEO Richard Thorpe at its monthly meeting.  With certification of the FEIR for Phase II on next week’s Authority Board Agenda, this discussion promises to be "spirited."  All are invited, and the meeting begins at 6:50 P.M. at Phillipe the Original.

Wednesday: Vroom!  The City Council Transportation Committee will debate a new series of speed limit increaes.  Burn Rubber to City Hall to be there at 2:00 P.M.

Thursday: One of the highlights of the month for transportation activists and wonks is the organized chaos monthly meeting of the  Metro Board of Directors at the Board Room in their towering offices downtown.  The meeting begins whenever enough Board Members can be bothered to show up at 9:30 A.M.  At the time of posting the agenda hasn’t been posted yet, but Streetsblog will summarize the agenda when it is.

Friday: Ironically, the day after the "organized chaos" of the Metro Board is the "organized Chaos" of Critical Mass.  The riders should meet at 6:30 P.M. at the Wilshire/Western Subway stop.

Saturday: Culver City is holding a public meeting to receive comments on their new draft bike plan.  The plan, prepared by Alta Planning, has received high marks from the bike groups that have contacted me about.  The meeting begins at 10:00 A.M. at the Garden Room, in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium,
4117 Overland Ave.
