The Week In...

The Week in Livable Streets Events

8:45 AM PDT on June 10, 2013

It's a big week, with fundraisers, meetings and something called an Architecture Rumble. Let's get right to it.
    • Monday through Saturday -  Even as we speak, UCLA's Architecture Rumble is about to begin. It's a week-long, free event open to anyone who cares about architecture and the city. There's great events everyday. Get the details, here.
    • Tuesday - The controversy over new bike lanes in San Pedro, that are somehow more to blame for 20 minutes of congestion near a school than the parents who insist on dropping off their kids in an SUV, comes to a head at a community meeting held by Council Member Joe Buscaino. Buscaino has supported the lanes thus far, but an ugly crowd can always sway a Council Member. Join the fun, get the details, here.
    • WednesdayMove L.A. holds a fundraising dinner to salute outgoing Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. Oh my God! Someone wants to say something nice about the Mayor! Alert the press! Or, go to the event. Ticket pricing and other information, including a host of VIP'sin attendence, can be found here.
    • Wednesday - But do you know a VIP that won't be there? Tom LaBonge. Why? Because LaBonge is leading a bike tour of Griffith Park to anyone who wants to hang out. Cool. It's just part two of a six part "Tour LaBonge." Get the details, here.
    • Thursday - The Women's Transportation Seminar, known quickly as WTS, is holding a luncheon with Council Member Jose Huizar to update on the Downtown Trolley. Get the details, here.
    • Thursday - If anyone is planning to be in San Gabriel on Thursday night, the American Planning Association, Los Angeles is honoring a group of visionaries that are re-shaping L.A. County, that includes myself and Sahra Sulaiman...and the Mayor! Oh, my God! It's the Mayor's Going Away APA Awards Dinner Party! Alert the Press!  In all seriousness, if you'd like to join us we'd be honored. You can get all the event details, here.
    • Friday - The fate of the Spring Street Green Buffered Bile Lane could be decided at City Council. A motion by Council Member Jose Huizar, backed by the community and cycling advocacy groups, directs the lane be repainted. Council Member Tom LaBonge is on the warpath against the Green Lane. Nobody will talk to me "on the record." It's going to be wild, and Mayor-Elect Garcetti is nowhere to be seen. The meeting start at 10 am in City Hall. We'll have a full preview once we hear back from anyone.
    • Friday - We're hosting a party in NELA! A guided tour of the future NELA Bike Lanes, a bike party afterwards, and an all around good time at the Flying Pigeon bike shop in Northeast L.A. While the party is open to all, we have not invited and have not received an RSVP from Mayor Villaraigosa. Get the event details, here. Join us on Facebook, here.
