The Week in Livable Streets Events

0000_sblog_calendar.gif After you take a couple of days to recover from the Street Summit and the after parties, get ready for some big meetings of the Metro Board and the City Council Transportation Committee.  Then after a hard week’s activism, you can relax a little with the Tweed Ride on Saturday.

Tuesday – But first…tomorrow night is the Transit Coalition’s monthly meeting at Phillipe’s The Original at 6:45 P.M.  This time, instead of having a guest speaker, the Coalition will discuss their "Simplified Service Plan" for Metrolink.  Sound familiar?  Streetsblog covered this plan back in December of last year.  For more information on the meeting, click here.

Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee will meet to discuss (oh, no!) speed limit increases and the Mt. Olympus communities D.I.Y. plans at 2:00 P.M. at City Hall.  A longer preview of this meeting is coming later today.

Wednesday – Saturday – Metro is asking for volunteers to help with its bike counts and surveys along the Metro Orange Line in the Valley.  Their looking for cyclists, or anyone really, to talk to people using the Bike Trail to find out how the trail changed their commute and transportation choices.  On Wednesday they’re looking for morning and evening volunteers, and Saturday they’re looking for volunteers mid-day.  For more information, click here.  Volunteers who sign up on the web site can pick their own station and time.

Thursday – At 9:30 A.M. Downtown, it’s the Metro Board Meeting!  Look for a full preview tomorrow, but if you want to speak I’d get there early.  Lord only knows how they’ll change the public comment period rules this month.

Saturday – C.I.C.L.E.’s Tweed Ride was so popular last year, that they’re doing it again!  Meet at Hollywood High in your best duds to mingle with L.A.’s "most dashing characters."  Sounds like its going to be great fun, with a lot of good prizes and a fun ride.  For more information, click here.
