New Livable Streets Group Rises in Alhambra
Earlier this year, urban planner and Streetsblog Board Member James Rojas wrote about a harrowing experience he had while trying to cross the street in his home town of Alhambra. While the cause of the experience was some poor driving, the urban planner in Rojas couldn’t help but believe that with better design, Alhambra could be made a better, cleaner and safer city for pedestrians.
Yesterday, Rojas announced the formation of a new organization, Alhambra Beyond Cars (ABC) through social media on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. The purpose of ABC is to, in Rojas’ words from the above video, “If you look at mobility issues in Alhambra, walking, biking, and health, we need to increase the mobility of residents without driving.”
We usually don’t list calendar events from outside the city in our calendar, but we’ll make an exception for the first couple of organizational meetings for ABC. Stay tuned.
