The Week in Livable Streets Events


Tuesday – The highlight of the week could be our first event.  The Bike Coalition, Midnight Ridazz, and Mayor Villaraigosa announce the winner of the bike safety poster contest.  I hear they’re going to film a P.S.A. too.  As long as it’s not the Mayor teaching me how to strap on my helmet, I’m in.  The event will be at 10:00 A.M. in front of the LAPD’s new digs.

Tuesday – Living Streets is working with City Planning and some other municipalities on pilot projects that will turn a few streets into the kinds of public spaces that we’d like to see every street become.  Find out about their efforts and how we can get more pilot programs underway at 6:00 at the Jewel Box (525 S. Figueroa).  For more information, click here.

Tuesday – The Transit Coalition meets for their monthly dinner meeting at Phillipe’s the Original in the Downtown.  In addition to Transit Coalition business, the Los Angeles to Palmdale High Speed Rail Team will present the latest on plans for this segment of the Line.  The meeting will begin at 6:46, for directions, click here.

Wednesday – Have I mentioned the LA Streetsblog fundraiser and "re-launch" party before?  The one at 7:00 at 11555 National Blvd. in West L.A.?  I did?  Good.  Just in case, you can read more about it here.

Thursday – Los Angeles Streetsblog resumes its normal publishing schedule.

Thursday – There is no full Metro Board meeting this week, which is a shame because those are these easiest stories to write of the entire month.  However, there will be a meeting of the Measure R Independent Taxpayers Oversight Committee.  For more information, check here.

Friday – Now that we’re in our third month of the LAPD/Critical Mass rides, it’s hard to remember the ugliness of the May "Critical Mass Attack."  Anyway, if you’re looking for a fun way to explore the city on bicycle, and make a statement about cyclists’ rights, this is the ride for you.  Meet at 6:30, leave at 7:30 from the Wilshire/Western Subway stop.  Yes, there will be cops there.

The Week in Livable Streets Events

Wow!  That’s a lot of stuff on Thursday.  Last time Move L.A. had a conference, it led to Measure R.  Wonder what they have planned for this week. Monday – Caltranst hosts a seminar on "how to prepare a succesful Safe Routes to School" application.  This should be required for anyone working at LADOT, but […]

The Week in Livable Streets Events

It’s a short week this week, which could be a sign that the summer slowdown is upon us, or that I’m about to get a lot of emails with event information.  Never the less, the Transit Coalition has a nice headliner this week, Expo Construction Authority’s Rick Thorpe and the last Friday of the month […]

The Rest of the Week in Livable Streets Events

Streetcar.  Get the rest of the details at The Transit […]

The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday – Apparently there’s this plan to completely demolish Beverly Hills High School (hey, I read the Courier) that Metro is pushing that will also allow them to build a subway extension.  Weird.  How have I not heard of this before?  There are meetings scheduled from 5:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. this week […]
