LACBC Graduate Research Night

Supporting A Bike-able Los Angeles With Research

LACBC believes in the power of student research to help inform our organization’s campaigns & local policy makers to create a more bike-able Los Angeles County. Join the LACBC Board Planning Committee & hear the latest bicycle related research findings from recent UCLA Urban Planning Graduate Students.

After the student presentations we invite everyone to brainstorm about projects or campaigns in some way inspired by the research. Stickers will be provided to mark ideas you like, and hopefully at the end of the meeting we’ll coalesce around one or two ideas that the LACBC Board Planning Committee can work on.  LACBC members and supporters are invited to get involved with the Planning Committee and LACBC campaigns.

Projects Presentations:
York Boulevard; The Economic Impacts of a Road Diet – Cullen McCormick (2012)
Redefining Impact; How California Cities Have Leveraged CEQA to Support Complete Streets – Jen Karmels (2012)
Bicycle Parking Ordinances; Examples From the United States – Rye Baerg (2011)

When: Wednesday, June 20th, 2012, 6:30-8:30pm

Where: MALDEF Building, Edison Room
634 South Spring Street
Los Angeles, CA 90014
