Happy 4th of July, See You on Thursday
The Los Angeles Streetsblog team is taking tomorrow off, but we’ll be back on Thursday and Friday with our regular coverage. I know Kris is working on a story on a recent Boyle Heights Neighborhood Council meeting, I’m working on an update to A.B. 904 which would eliminate parking minimums in certain situations and Gary and Sahra are working on updates in South L.A. and Santa Monica.
In addition to the July 4th holiday marking the signing of the Declaration of Independence, it also closely follows the end of the fiscal year for a lot of organizations including the Southern California Streets Initiative, the local co-publisher of Los Angeles Streetsblog. To say that this year has been a success would be an understatement. Our budget tripled, readership doubled, we produced the first Spanish Language Streetfilm and our coverage has gotten better with time.
At the end of the calendar year, it’s traditional to thank everyone who made the year possible. As I finnished balancing the books yesterday, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the support that so many of you have given us. In particular thank you to our fiscal sponsors, advertisers, and event patrons:
- The California Endowment
- The David Bohnett Foundation
- GEK Law
- First Five California
- The Robert Group
- Bike Center
- New Belgium Brewing
- Consensus Inc.
- Los Angeles Eco-Village
- Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition
- Earl’s Gourmet Grub
- Joel Epstein and Karen Sarachik
- Mark Gorton
- Amanda Lipsey …
…and all the rest of our readers, volunteers, board members, donors, authors and everyone that made the last fiscal year such a great one.
