The Week in Livable Streets Events


There’s a full calendar this week with something new and different every week.  So who’s up for a trip to Riverside?

Monday – Metro holds its second hearing updating the progress of the Regional Connector.  It looks as though the Little Tokyo community is on board, so there’s few roadblocks in the way of bringing this important rail project to reality.  For more information for tonight’s meeting, click here.

Tuesday -The My Figueroa team also Finnish their current round of outreach, following up on Saturday’s hearing.  If you’re a stakeholder in South L.A. or the Downtown, you should make time to tell the team what you want Figueroa to look like.  The meeting is at the 7th and Fig Art Center.  For more information, click here.

Tuesday – The Beverly Hills City Council meets for their bi-weekly meetings.  Granted, this isn’t usually something that would make this calendar, but this week their going to discuss their position on the Westside Subway.  Fearless prediction, they won’t like it if it goes under their community.  For more information on the meeting, visit Beverly Hills’ website.

Tuesday – The City of Los Angeles’ Bicycle Advisory Committee meets in Hollywood at 7:00 P.M.  The meeting has a packed agenda, as always.  If you want to go to the meeting, check out the agenda and get directions, here.

Wednesday – Is either Walktober or Bike It! day for kids heading to school.  Regardless, it’s a good day for some people powered transportation.

Thursday – Our friend Diane Meyer is opening another amazing exhibit, but this time it’s a little farther away than Santa Monica.  Bike Culture in Southern California opens all the way in Riverside.  But there is good news, it runs until December 31.  Who’s up for a road trip?  For more details, click here.

Friday – CICLE sponsors an Art Ride in Pasadena.  Sounds like a good time.  Get the details, here.
