The Week In Livable Streets Events

It’s a short week.  Middle weeks in July so often are.  To make matters worse, Metro Board Committees aren’t meeting until next week.

Monday – Latino Urban Forum invites you to join a lively discussion on food, equality, food justice, and healthy food choices and why these issues are relevant to Latinos in Los Angeles.  The meeting starts at 6:00 P.M. on the Eastside.  Get all the details, here.

Tuesday –  Join Van Alen Institute at the Caltrans Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles  for a presentation of winning entries from the Life at the Speed of Rail competition and a conversation about the role of design in California’s high-speed rail future.  The meeting starts at 4:00 P.M.  Get more details, here.

Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee meets to discuss the final approval of Jaime De La Vega as Transportation Committee Chair and higher fees for parking scofflaws.  You know, the normal.  The meeting starts at 2:00 P.M. at City Hall.  You can read the agenda, here.

Friday – SCI-ARC, the Southern California Institute of Architecture and METRO invite members of the community to a Neighborhood Design Workshop, exploring a more livable future via walking, biking and mass transit.  Get all the details, here.

Sunday – Meet the Flying Pigeon LA crew in front of the shop at 3714 N. Figueroa St., Los Angeles, CA 90065 at 10 a.m. on the 3rd Sunday of each month for a fun, slow-paced, group ride to a dim sum restaurant in the L.A. area.  Get more information on this an other Flying Pigeon Rides at their events page.
