The Week in Livable Streets Events

Man, it’s been years since we had meetings on the Bike Plan. Fun!

  • Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee meets to hear a discussion of VROOM, speed limit increases! Hooray! Finally, someone is looking out for the beleaguered scofflaw drivers of Los Angeles. Much more on this tomorrow. Read the full agenda, here. 
  • Wednesday – All eyes in the local biking world will turn back to NELA, as the Department of City Planning hosts its first community meeting on the environmental studies for the Bike Plan at 6 p.m. Get the meeting details here. Learn more about one of the streets in the center of the study, North Figueroa Street, by clicking here.
  • Thursday – From NELA, the eyes of the community turn towards “Center City.” Bike activists get to celebrate Valentine’s Day by going to a meeting. That’s cool. We love our bikes and all. Details: here.
  • Saturday – There’s one Parklet opening left (for now). The last of the four “pilot projects” opens in El Sereno this weekend. Get all the details, here.
