The Week in Livable Streets Events

Metro wraps up it’s current round of public meetings for the I-710 Big Dig and the High Desert Corridor. And, conveniently before Critical Mass, there’s a chance to speak with a bicycling attorney about the rules of the road.

  • Monday – If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you aren’t going out to Palmdale to find out more information about the High Desert Corridor Highway/Bikeway/HSR project. But, you can watch the presentation online. Get details on the US Stream and meeting in our calendar section
  • Tuesday – Joshua Cohen, Los Angeles Bike Attorney, will give a bird’s-eye overview of legal and factual issues cyclists need to be familiar with to safely navigate the streets of Los Angeles. Get more info at the Streetsblog Calendar Section and Facebook.
  • Tuesday – I know, I know. It seems like they just started, and now they’re over too soon. It’s sad, but spring becomes summer, summer becomes fall, and the leaves on the trees wither and die. It’s the last of this round of all-community convenings for the I-710 Big Dig. I bet it will be months, or at least weeks, until the next round. Details.
  • Wednesday – At 2 pm in City Hall, Mike Bonin takes his first turn chairing the City Council Transportation Committee. The first agenda has a mix of the good: an update on the plans for the Expo Bikeway at Centinela/Exposition, the bad: a proposal that allow people to park at broken meters and the ugly: a complaint that LADOT/BSS isn’t painting crosswalks and bike lanes correctly. Read the agenda, here.
  • Thursday – Speaking of new chairs, Thursday marks the first Metro Board Meeting chaired by Diane Dubois. The incoming chair promises a “light” meeting. I’m not sure there is such a thing. Read the agenda, here.
  • Thursday – The On the Map series examines how architecture of a major building can change a community’s charecter. This week, the series is looking at the South Los Angeles Animal Care Center & Community Center. Get the details, here.
  • Friday – Critical Mass. Wilshire Western. Arrive at 6:30, ride leaves at 7. Details on Facebook.
  • Saturday – The City of Los Angeles is updating their housing element and wants you to come to an open house and public hearing. It might sound like a bad way to spend a Saturday, but it’s a good way to fight for the neighborhood you want to have. Get the meeting details, here.
