The Week in Livable Streets Events

 What a week!  Start with a City Council meeting, end with a bike ride.

Monday – A joint meeting of the City Council Transportation and Budget and Finance Committees will meet to discuss (what else) transportation-related budget issues.  The meeting is at 1:00 P.M. at City Hall, and we’ll have a lot more on this in a little bit.

Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday – Public meetings for the Westside Subway aka The Subway to the Sea continue.  For more information, click here.

Tuesday – The Cyclists’ Bill of Rights goes to the Venice Neighborhood Council for an endorsement.  Bikeside has the details, and expects this common sense statement of basic rights to be somewhat controversial with the somewhat conservative NC.

Wednesday – Metro’s Planning & Programming and Finance & Budget Committees will hold separate hearings on the Mayor’s "30 in 10" plan.  It’s hard to picture anyone actually opposing it, but then again this is the Metro Board.  Anything is possible.  The meetings start at 1:00 and 2:30 respectively in the Metro Board Room.

Wednesday – C.I.C.L.E. hosts a talk at Caltech on creating great places to bike.  They’re promising, " a tantalizing talk, a sexy slide show, short-n-sassy films, and handy-dandy handouts."  Cool.  For more information, check out the C.I.C.L.E. website.

Thursday – It’s Earth Day.  I got about 1,000 different promotional things for Earth Day.  Just make sure to do something outside and you’ll be fine.

Thursday – It’s the Metro Board Meeting.  On deck, "30 in 10."

Saturday – C.I.C.L.E. hosts the Lorax Ride, a moderately paced tour of some of Pasadena’s greenest locales.  Sadly, there’s not going to be a sexy sideshow.  For more information, visit C.I.C.L.E.’s website.
