The Week in Livable Streets Events: Tour LaBonge, 710, Streetfilms Fundraiser for Shay and More

Right Now - The Metro Board of Directors meets to vote on various matters related to the "Measure R+" ballot initiative for the November ballot.  The Board will vote on the language that will appear on the ballot, an amendment allowing the Metro Board (with a two-thirds vote) to move funds from highway to transit projects within a geographic region, and many other things.  You can read the full report prepared by staff, right here.  Once there's news, we'll announce here and on our social media.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday - Metro is sponsoring a series of "community meetups" to discuss the I-710 Corridor Project, known affectionately here as the "Big Dig."  You can read a pretty "pro-" article on the project on the Eastside Sun.  You can read a negative article pretty much all over this website.

Thursday - Councilman Tom LaBonge's office pitched this "Tour LaBonge" ride through Hollywood as a great chance to see how things are improving in Hollywood.  Tempting, but I'm busy on Thursday. If any of you go to the ride, let me know what you think. Get the details, here.

Thursday - Is our fundraiser, sponsored by Bike Nation, to benefit Shay Sanchez's "Kick Butt and Get Better" Fund at Flying Pigeon L.A. This is the second stop on our "Eastside Tour." There's going to be tacos, and Streetfilms, and a Bike Nation presentation, and more! Get all the details, here.

Friday - Once your done partying with us on Friday (or riding around with Tom LaBonge, whatever) make sure you're ready for another fundraiser for a good bike cause. Communities for Mobility, formerly known as the LACBC's "City of Lights" program, is holding their first fundraiser, Fiesta de Las Luces. Sounds like fun. Get the details, here.

Saturday - You know what makes streets livable? Trees. That's why there's a great tree planting ceremony in NELA this weekend. Find out more, by clicking here.

Sunday - The folks at Bikerowave have a great free class this Sunday on soap making...that also includes a special on "back to school" bike riding.  Westsiders, check it out.
