The Short Week in Livable Streets Events

9:10 AM PST on December 12, 2011

It's a relatively short week for events here in Los Angeles, but the Metro Board meeting on Thursday promises to be an absolute circus if the FTA's report on alleged Civil Rights Violations drops between now and then.

Thursday - Live from the Metro Board Room at 9:30 in the morning, it's the Board of Directors meeting.  As we previously stated, this meeting could be an ABSOLUTE CIRCUS, even by Metro Board standards.  I'll be interviewing writers for our Boyle Heights position, but we'll have full coverage sometime Thursday afternoon.  Or, you can listen on via telephone at 213-922-6045.  Read the meeting agenda, here.

Thursday - Down in Long Beach, Mia Birk, the super-planner from Alta Planning and Design, visits Long Beach for a bike ride and group discussion in support of her new book, Joyride.  Long Beach's advocacy group, Bikeable Communities, is hosting the event and has all the details, including ticket reservations, here.

Saturday - GOOD L.A. needs your help to physically demonstrate how a small change in commuting habits can lead to big changes on L.A.'s streets.  Oh, and they're hanging out at a bar afterwards.  The fun starts at noon, Downtown.  Get all the details, here.
