The Week in Livable Streets Events

Finally, the long saga of the Bike Plan is at an end.

Tuesday – The Bike Plan goes in front of the Full City Council for Final Approval.  I swear to God, if they postpone a vote, I might lose my mind.  The meeting starts at 10:00 A.M. at City Hall. You can watch the hearing online at the City Clerk’s website.

Tuesday – But what good is a Bike Plan without an implementation plan?  Just lines on a street.  The Bike Plan Implementation Team (BPIT) for the City of LA meets on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 2:00 PM in City Hall, Room 721.  Topping the agenda, bike facilities for 7th Street.

Wednesday – After three years of public process, and public meetings, the Bike Plan is passed.  It’s time to celebrate.  LACBC is throwing a mini-party at the signing ceremony at 9:30 A.M. on the steps of City Hall.

Thursday – The California High Speed Rail Authority board meets in LA on Thursday, 3/3 – and each of the three Southern California alignments (Palmdale to LA, LA to Anaheim and LA to San Diego) will present updates.  Get the meeting details here, or view the meeting online here.

Thursday – Have you ever wanted to take a tour of the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles?  Do you like riding your bike at 3 in the morning?  If so, check out the “Ports are Ours” ride later this week.  Read an email from ride leader Alan Alessio, here.

Friday – Have we mentioned Streetsblog’s birthday party yet?  It’s at 5:00 at the Spring Street Bar.  No RSVP required, but you can leave birthday messages on our Facebook Page.
