The Week in Livable Streets Events

9:08 AM PDT on September 27, 2010

sblog_calendar

Public hearings for Metro rail projects and the city's bike plan roll on.  We also have some interesting public events at the end of the week, including a fundraiser for L.A. Streetcar Inc.

Monday - Wednesday - While both public hearings for the Westside Subway will have the same presentations; the Monday hearing in Beverly Hills could be the most exciting.  The last time Metro held a hearing in Beverly Hills on the Subway to Westwood, the media showed up expecting an outraged public.  Instead, they got a mostly supportive one.  Will Monday be a rerun?  For more information on the hearing, click here.

Tuesday - Regional Connector hearings kickoff Downtown.  Historically, the Japanese-American community Downtown have opposed the connector because of the impact construction could have on several cultural landmarks.  Metro's made some moves to try and address these criticisms, because this project is considered by many to be the keystone of all the Measure R projects.  For more information, click here.

Wednesday - Thursday - Bike plan hearings roll on after kicking off on Saturday.  Wednesday night is the Westside's turn, and Thursday is a rare bike plan outreach meeting in South Central Los Angeles.  For more information, click here.

Thursday - Thursday evening there will be a fundraiser for L.A. Streetcar Inc.  You can get some details in the calendar section, but we'll also have a feature article a little later this week.

Friday - Mark Lakeman will guide participants through a slideshow lecture on turning streets into public spaces.  Naturally, this event will be held at one of my favorite places, the L.A. Eco-Village!  Check out the Eco-Village events website for more information.

Saturday - We usually don't promote events "all the way" down in Long Beach, but this one looks too interesting too ignore...a bike tour of the Port of Long Beach.  There are several "guided tours" of the port that day for cyclists, and you can get the details here.
