The Week in Livable Streets Events

sblog_calendarTuesday – Last month, Joe Linton brought you coverage of the installation of bike lanes, and a corresponding road diet, occuring on Wilbur Avenue in the Northridge-West Neighborhood in the Valley.  Last week, I talked about Council Man Smith’s angry reaction.  But what does the neighborhood actually think?  The Northridge-West Neighborhood Council meets in the Beckford Ave. Elementary School,19130 Tulsa Street Northridge at 7:00 P.M.

Tuesday – Friday – This week, Metro Board Committees will be meeting to determine what items make it to the agenda for next week’s Metro Board Meeting.  Unlike the City Council, where Streetsblog focuses almost exclusively on the full Board, and not the committees.  This week, we’re going to change that by going through the agendas and discuss each of the committees, the day before they meet, just in case people want to make their voices heard.

Friday – It’s Park(ing) Day!

Friday – The Westside Urban Forum is hosting a talk that’s basically asking whether or not the City of Los Angeles can afford to “go green” in the current economic climate.  Of course, we all know that when it comes to transportation, green is cheaper than any other form of transport.  To read more about the event, including how to pre-register, click here.

Saturday – CicLAvia is hosting a “bicycle beauty contest” with the proceeds benefiting the big day on 10/10/10.  For more information, visit the CicLAvia blog.

Saturday – How many holidays can we have in one week.  Friday is Park(ing) Day, and Saturday is Crankmas III.  This could be the best attended bike ride of the year.  For more information, check out their Facebook page.

Editor’s Note: Biking In L.A. has a good rundown of bike events over the next week, which you can read here.
