The Week in Livable Streets Events

Ok, it’s been a busy couple of weeks.  Take the day off, and get back to work on Tomorrow.

Tuesday – The Transit Coalition holds its monthly meeting at Phillipe the Original.  This week’s meeting features guest speaker is Robert Turnauckas, the Chief Customer Engagement Officer for Metrolink.  Get the rest of the details, here.

Wednesday –At 2:00 P.M. in City Hall, it’s the City Council Transportation Committee.  The highlight of the meeting for many will be the long-awaited report on the anti-harassment ordinance for cyclists, but there’s other interesting topics on the agenda including some talk of the city’s Measure R funds.  Read the agenda, here.

Thursday – This week’s Metro Board meeting is packed with important and exciting resolutions.  We’ll break the agenda down when it’s posted.  Keep your eyes on this link if you can’t wait for our analysis.

Thursday – For those of you more interested in two-wheeled transportation than transit, there’s an 11:30 meeting of the Caltrans Bicycle Advisory Committee and Open Space Committees in the Caltrans Building beginning at 11:30.  Get the information, here.

Friday – Critical Mass leaves Wilshire/Western at 7:30 P.M. Traditionally, Critical Mass shrinks when the weather gets cold.  Whether that pattern holds after 2,000 bikes attended last month and in a post-CicLAvia future remains to be seen.

Saturday – Some of you may remember that I used to be the marketer for the Eco-Home and Eco-Home Tours.  Those tours are over, but there’s lots of great “green living” tours still happening throughout the city.  The best of those happen every couple of weeks at the Eco-Village.  Get more information, here.  The tours are 2:00 to 4:30.  Learn more about the Eco-Village at the official website.

Saturday – “Bike the Vote” with Congress Woman Jane Harman and Assembly Candidate Betsy Butler down in the South Bay.  The ride ends with a party in Venice.  Get the details, here.
