The Week in Livable Streets Events: Big Thursday, CicLAvia

It’s easy to look ahead to CicLAvia, but there’s a lot of other good events on the calendar this weekend.

  • Tuesday – Walktober kicks off with a “Day of Action” from our friends at Los Angeles Walks. The pedestrian advocacy organization is using costumes and colors to draw attention to pedestrian safety at three of L.A.’s unsafest intersections starting at 8 am at Hollywood and Vine. Get all the details for their other stops in Mid-City and Downtown Los Angeles at the Streetsblog Calendar Section.
  • Thursday – Food & Film @ the Train Tracks is an event showcasing the Glendale Metrolink Station, including the historic Southern Pacific Railroad Depot.  Feedback from participants attending the event will help inform the City and Project Team on how to move forward with policy recommendations for the neighborhoods around the Metrolink Station. Get the details at the Streetsblog Calendar Section.
  • Thursday – The Los Angeles Young Transportation Professionals and LADOT host a symposium to discuss how technology improvements impact transportation and community planning. Accelerate Los Angeles will be an engaging discussion of big ideas, creative problem solving, and cutting-edge technology with current and future leaders in the tech and transportation fields. The event starts at 6 at LADOT’s Downtown Offices. Details. 
  • Thursday – The coalition of environmentalists, homeowners and businesses in West L.A. and Santa Monica will meet to discuss not just whether or not Santa Monica should consider turning large portions (or all) of the city’s airport into a park, but what amenities the park should have. We have their flyer in our calendar section for this Thursday’s meeting.

Be Traffic! The good kind, though, because it’s Bike Week. It’s that fresh springtime week when some entities that do very little for bikes most of the time talk about how much they do for bikes, while finalizing their budgets that contain nearly nothing for bikes. Smile for the camera! It’s also a good time […]
