The Week in Livable Streets Events

Short weeks sometimes get off to a slow start, but tonight's meeting on the Bike Plan environmental documents for the Westside promises to be a doozy. And don't forget a couple of big fundraisers on Saturday including Bike Prom and our Westside House Party.

Today - As we said, tonight is the big meeting on the environmental documents for a handful of Bike Plan projects on the Westside, including the apparently controversial Westwood Bike Lanes that would add connectivity to the future Expo Bike Path and light rail station. Get the details for tonight's meeting at our calendar section.

Thursday - Two days later, it's the Valley's turn for a public meeting on the Bike Plan DEIR. They're doing a much better job reaching out for these meetings than they did the creation of the plan itself. I'm just sayin'. Get the details, here.

Saturday - C.I.C.L.E. tends to have fun bicycle rides. I actually met Joe Linton at one in early 2008. True story. This weekend is the Wild West Chatsworth Ride. Sadly, I'll be missing it for the "Wild Westside Toddler Swim Class" but I'm missing this one in all senses of the word. It looks like fun. If you're going and want to share some pictures with us, please let me know at Oh, and you can get the event details here.

Saturday - Westsiders and other interested parties, we're hosting the first of our house parties at Joel Epstein and Karen Sarachik's house in Brentwood. You can get the details here, but email me if you're coming and I'll get you the house address. The event starts at 6:30.

Saturday - So here's the thing. When I took my date to the prom years ago, we went out for dinner first. So you certainly can stop at Joel Epstein's house and still make it to Bike Prom. In fact, you have to. Anyone that does both, I'll buy you a corsage. Really.  Don't worry, it's downhill. We love 1980's prom attire, really. For more on Bike Prom, which sounds completely awesome by the way, click here.

Monday - It's been awhile since we covered James Rojas' innovative transportation/land use planning model and he's got an update. A new outdoor version of the original plan is in the works, and you can experience it next Monday in DTLA. Check it out.
