The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday – The Gold Line Foothill Construction Authority is sponsoring station planning workshops to learn the latest on the proposed Gold Line.  Get the details on this week’s meetings here.

Monday through Thursday – Metro and Caltrans are holding a series of hearings on what to do to alleviate traffic congestion concerns in the North Valley’s High Desert Corridor.  Apparently there’s a transit option being considered instead of just “building a highway.”  Well, that’s something I suppose.  Get the meeting details, here.

Monday through Thursday – The L.A. County Bike Plan is holding the last of its group of hearings for this round of public outreach meetings.  There are some issues with the plan, and we’ll have more on that later this week.  In the meantime, check out the meeting details, here.

Tuesday – People for Bikes is having a big party and filming a P.S.A.  It sounds like a great, great night.  Check it out.

Wednesday – The Los Angeles City Council Transportation Committee is going to begin the process of removing the city’s accidental ban on bucket bikes for children and front facing car seats.  Meeting starts at 2 in City Hall.

Thursday – It’s the Third Annual Bike Night at the Hammer!  I have yet to make one of these, but am constantly assured that this event is awesome.  I’ll be baking brownies for the next day.  But, for those of you who still get out after it turns dark, you should go.  Get the details, here.

Friday – Bright and early, the Westside Urban Forum hosts its monthly discussion program.  This month its “\A City for the 21st Century?” and it will be examining the future of Century City.  See what they did there?  Get the details, here.

Friday – Did I mention we’re holding a fundraiser later this week?  I have?  Well, once more won’t hurt.  Join us on Facebook, or get the details, here.
