The Week in Livable Streets Events


Weeks before a three-day weekend tend to be slow around here.  Not true this time.

Monday-Tuseday – Everyone remembers the Community Transportation Expo in L.B. this week, right?

Monday – At 1:00 P.M. in City Hall, the Transportation and Budget and Finance Committees will hear proposals on the fare hikes planned for LADOT transit services.  Streetsblog will have more on this hearing later this afternoon.

Tuesday -The LACBC’s 4th Street Bike Boulevard Committee meets at 7:00 P.M. at the Larchmont Bungalow.  On the agenda?  A future meeting with Councilman Tom LaBonge.

Tuesday – The Transit Coalition’s monthly meeting has a coup of a guest speaker, Metrolink CEO John Fenton will speak at Phillipe the Original at 6:45.

Wednesday -It’s been two months since the LADOT was directed to devise a plan in two weeks (that would be seven weeks ago) for the Mt. Olympus community to pay for its own traffic calming.  We’ll find out the results of that study at this week’s City Council Transportation Committee meeting.  The meeting begins at 2:00 P.M. in City Hall, and the agenda can be read here.

Thursday – Live at 9:30 in the morning, it’s the Metro Board of Directors!  Since the Board’s regularly scheduled meeting last month, the Board has met twice to talk about fare hikes and pass next year’s budget.  So what’s left to talk about?  How about the 710 Tunneling Project?
