The Week in Livable Streets Events

Monday – AEG will make a presentation to the City Council’s ad-hoc stadium committee focusing on transportation and traffic issues.  At this point, there’s no hand outs or other back up materials available to the public.  The meeting starts at 8:30 A.M. in City Hall.  Get the details, here.

Tuesday – SCAG’s Toolbox Tuesdays is back with a session on Parking Systems Management.  You can join them in their Downtown offices or online.  All the details are here.

Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee meets with a pretty ho-hum agenda, except for the small matter of allocating $200,000 to insure that CicLAvia has a healthy 2012.  The meeting starts at 2:00 in the Downtown City Hall.  Get the details, here.

Friday-Sunday – Santa Monica’s annual expo of the best in more environmentally friendly cars rides again.  Non-profit row is a good place to see a lot of L.A.’s best transit advocates.  Get the details, here.

Friday – Critical Mass rides again.  Wilshire/Western.  Ride leaves at 7:00.

  • No Parking No Shopping

    Where do the people at SCAG park their cars in downtown LA?

  • Marco Anderson

    Many take transit.  For those that drive there are 4 paid parking lots along Flower between 7th and 8th.  With prices that range between $6-9/day

  • Actually the non-profit participation at alt car has wilted up as they no longer can afford to provide free booths to groups. Transit is represented by Big Blue Bus and Metro. And there is a bike panel Saturday morning.
