Talk about having an immediate impact. Thanks to a grant from the L.A. County Department of Public Health, Green L.A.is looking for a "Living Streets Coordinator" for Boyle Heights.  You can read the full job description here, but here’s a taste of what the Coordinator will do:

The Boyle Heights Living Streets Initiative will increase people’s ability to safely and pleasantly cycle and walk in Boyle Heights by implementing 3 prototype Living Streets near the Mariachi Plaza and Soto Gold Line stations. Currently, City of Los Angeles’ standard street improvement projects do not give any special consideration to cyclists and pedestrians. This Initiative will take advantage of the opportunity afforded by approximately $25 million allocated through various grants and funding programs to design and install street improvements near these Gold Line stations according to Living Streets principles.

Applications are due by May 7.
