West L.A. Neighborhood Council Traffic Safety Town Hall

ROSENDAHL, SAFETY ADVOCATES ANNOUNCE TOWN HALL MEETINGS TO ADDRESS TRAFFIC ISSUES 
 
WEST LA — Councilman Bill Rosendahl and organizers of the Sawtelle-Bundy Traffic Safety Program announced two town hall meetings to address the problems associated with our gridlocked streets on the Westside.
The goal of this new program is to reduce cut-through traffic in our residential neighborhoods, and draw attention to the noise and air pollution that this traffic creates. The group plans on achieving the program goal by listing specific neighborhoods with traffic issues, and what days and times are the worst.
A traffic engineer will attend to describe possible traffic mitigations and solutions to make our West L.A. community safer
A limited fund has been established by developers of local projects to help provide for new stop signs, speed bumps, crosswalks and other solutions for a safer community.
Please encourage friends and family to attend one of the following meetings:
Thurs., April 5, 2012 – 7:00 p.m.

1645 Corinth Ave. 2nd floor, Los Angeles 90025

Bill Rosendahl, Unplugged in Del Rey

Photo:UWEC Last night, Westside Councilman Bill Rosendahl held a forum for residents of Del Rey to discuss their traffic concerns with officials with Caltrans and LADOT.  At first, I wondered why it was called a "traffic" and not "transportation" forum, but I soon learned why as the only question that wasn’t about moving cars or […]

City/Locals Clash on Pico-Olympic Plan

Could there be a better illustration of the divide between the DOT and the community? As I sat and watched angry/scared locals from along the Pico-Olympic corridors testify against the Mayor’s Pico-Olympic plan, I suddenly felt bad for LADOT Transportation Engineer Ken Husting. Basically, it shouldn’t have been this way. The residents and business owners […]
