sblog_calendar Monday – Wednesday –   Two of the three updates announced for the Westside Subway environmental review will occur this week in at LACMA (Monday) and Westwood United Methodist Church.  How much could really have changes since the hearings last fall?  We’ll find out…For more information, click here.

Monday – Rail L.A. hosts an open forum at 7:00 tonight in the Downtown featuring our own Joe Linton.  Get the rest of the details, here.

Monday – After (literally) years of work, the LACBC and City of Glendale are ready to release the Safe and Healthy Streets Plan.  Funded by a grant from L.A. County Department of Public Health, the plan is designed to provide a plan to make Glendale a better place to walk, bike, play and live as well as make the link between better streets and healthier citizens.  The plan will be unveiled at tonight’s meeting of the Glendale City Council Transportation and Parking Committee.  For more information, click here.

Tuesday – The Southern California Association of Governments provides a “Toolbox Tuesday” lunch event that looks at the impact of mixed-use development (i.e. development with retail and residential components) on making areas safer for pedestrians.  Get the details, here.

Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee has been canceled for this week, for the obvious reason.

Thursday – The power of the state’s open meeting laws face another challenge when the Metro Board of Directors hold their first meeting of the new year.  The last time they met they almost changed Metro policy on spending sales tax dollars without letting anyone know before hand…what shenanigans does Thursday’s meeting hold?  The agenda is not yet online, when it is we’ll post it on Streetsblog.  If you want to look for it yourself, you’ll be able to find it here.

Friday – Is Critical Mass.  What’s next in the history of this evolving ride?
