The Week in Livable Streets Events: Let’s Get Ready To….

This is an all-star week of events.  Starting tonight…

Tuesday – Following Friday’s LAPD/Critical Mass debacle, the LAPD is promising some answers at tonight’s Los Angeles Bike Advisory Committee Meeting.  The LAPD has confirmed attendance of one of their representatives, and cyclists are planning robust attendance.  If you’d like to go to the meeting, get the details here.  If you want to "Storm the Bastille," click here.

Tuesday – Of course, tonight isn’t just the organized showdown between the LAPD and cyclists, but also the "Last Battle of Farmdale."  The "Below Grade or Nothing" crowd will battle the "but they’re giving you a freakin’ train station" crowd over the layout of the Farmdale intersection with the Expo Line…aka the Dorsey High stop.  We’ve written a lot about this, and you can find the details here.  Since the NBA Finals won’t start until Thursday, there’s no excuse not to attend.

Wednesday – Metro will host a design workshop for transportation planners who want to build better bike infrastructure.  It starts at 9:30, so if you’re interested, get in touch with them right now.  And get the details here.

Wednesday – Remember the L.A. County Bicycle Master Plan outreach plan?  It’s the one that actually follows the time schedule originally laid out for it.  They’re having another outreach meeting this Wednesday.  Read more here.

Friday – The Urban Land Institute hosts an all-day symposium on transit oriented development issues.  Streetsblog and ULI don’t always agree on every issue, but they have a group of heavy hitters, and even when they don’t they’re always interesting and educational.  For information on the conference, visit ULI’s website.
