The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday-Wednesday – The Southern California Association of Governments continues its public outreach for the upcoming regional transportation plan.  Lobbying SCAG can be a little “in the weeds” but the agency helps set standards for Greenhouse Gas deductions and helps determine how some federal dollars are spent.  The meeting in Downtown L.A. was last week, but there are meetings in Carson City, Santa Clara and Santa Monica this week.  Get the details, here.

Monday – The Operations and Implementation Committee of Metro’s Bicycle Roundtable meets at 6 in the Metro Board Room.  Get the details, and agenda, here.

Tuesday – This week’s scheduled speaker at the Transit Coalition Monthly Meeting is David Alba, the Project Manager for GRID/ECSTC Systems.  The meeting starts at 6:45 at Phillipe’s the Original.  Get more details, here.

Tuesday, Thursday – Metro hosts public meetings on extending the Green Line to LAX.  The Thursday meeting is in Downtown L.A., so all you Downtown transit guys have easy access to a meeting.  Get the details, here.

Don’t forget, next week, August 30, we’ll be at the Library Alehouse in Santa Monica all day.  Come eat and drink and 10% of all proceeds come to Streetsblog.  You can get all the information about the event and our auctions, right here.
