Another month, another Metro Board meeting.  This month is a big one...bus service cuts on the agenda.  We'll have a full preview of the agenda tomorrow.

Monday, Wednesday -Metro hosts a pair of community outreach meetings for the Westside Subway.  The real fun starts next week when the meeting goes to Beverly Hills, but for now we can settle for a pair of 6:00 P.M. meetings at LACMA and Westwood United.  Get the details, here.

Tuesday - SCAG hosts another Toolbox Tuesdays, live on your computer, at 10:00 A.M.  A panel of expert consultants will discuss how planners, can think strategically about the kind of community their city has the potential of becoming, rather than looking at piecemeal tactics for revitalizing under-used parcels.  Get the details, here.

Tuesday - Project RENEW is hosting a series of workshops on TOD and Open Space in South L.A. around the Blue Line.  The last of these will be Tuesday in Watts.  Get more details, here.

Wednesday - The City Council Transportation Committee meets at 2:00 P.M. in City Hall.  The agenda is a bit blah after all the excitement about Expo, Bike Plans, Safe Routes to School, and anti-harassment ordinances.  But we'll post the agenda anyways.

Thursday - The Metro Board of Directors is expected to vote on 309,000 miles of bus service cuts, a master plan for Union Station and other assorted goodies.  The agenda isn't online yet, but will be available here.  The fun begins at 9:30 A.M. in the Metro Board Room.

Friday - Critical Mass.  7:00 P.M.  Wilshire/Western

Saturday - Explore culture and art in Highland Park.  The tour begins at the Highland Park stop along the Metro Gold Line, and includes a visit to our Folk Art Everywhere partner, Figueroa Produce. We’ll learn about hidden gems from historic signage and architecture, to unique public spaces and independent businesses, and conclude with a picnic at La Tierra de la Culebra Park.  The Folk Art Walk begins at 11:30 A.M.  Get the details, here.

Saturday - This is so cool.  It's a bike ride to raise funds to fight a freeway widening.  The Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice (CEHAJ) is hosting a bikeathon event on the Lower Los Angeles River on March 26th. The event’s slogan is “Communities Over Freeways.” The goal is to raise awareness and funding – in opposition to the widening of the 710 FreewayFind out if there's a start point near you.
