The Week in Livable Streets Events

8:50 PM PST on November 8, 2010

More speed limit increases!  I wonder if the fatal crash in the Valley last week will have anyone thinking twice about raising limits....

Tuesday - Meetings for the Crenshaw Corridor light rail project continue forward.  This week only features one meeting, on Tuesday night at Crenshaw High School.  For more information, click here.

Wednesday - The Los Angeles City Council Transportation Committee meets at 2:00 P.M. at City Hall.  On the agenda?  Speed Limit increases.  Five of them.  Blech.  See the agenda, here.  More coverage coming later today.

Wednesday - Our friends at the American Institute of Architects hosts a conversation on Green Streets, Complete Streets and Living Streets with an all-star lineup of participants including LA Streetsblog Board Member Deborah Murphy.  Space is limited, so RSVP today.  Get more information, here.

Wednesday - Any Westsiders or UCLA students who need some help getting around without a car might find this event useful.  It's called "Getting Around LA without a Car," and will be held Wednesday night at the UCLA Public Affairs building.  Get more details, here.

Saturday - So.CA.TA has their monthly meeting at 1:00 P.M. at Angeles Plaza near Pershing Square.  Get more information, here or visit

Saturday -  This is the inaugural bike event being sponsored by the Optimist Clubs of the Central Coast as a benefit ride for the Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center.

Sunday - Riding Bikes with the Dutch will be showing at the Art Theatre in Long Beach.  Our friend Drew Reed interviewed the movie's film maker, Michael Bauch, back in May.  To read his interview, click here.  For more on the screening, click here.
