West Hollywood Bicycle Task Force Screens Streetfilms’ Moving Beyond the Automobile

The West Hollywood Bicycle Task Force is screening the Streetfilms.org film Moving Beyond the Automobile on Wed. Dec. 7th at 6:30 p.m. at the new West Hollywood Library at 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. We would like very much to be included in your calendar of up-coming events as I know your readers are interested in the topics covered in the film.
A panel discussion will follow the screening. As of today’s date the panel includes Alexis Lantz of the LACBC, Ryan Snyder of Ryan Snyder Associates, an urban planner and Alan Thompson, a senior regional planner from SCAG. We are still looking for a fourth panel member from the bicycle or city government community.
Here is a link to an article about the screening, please feel free to attach the link or use any info you deem necessary.
