The Week in Livable Streets Events

11:18 AM PDT on October 6, 2014


Bike counts, bike meetings. Walk to school day, mural walks. And a bridge. It's a diverse week in Livable Streets Events.

    • Tonight! -  Los Angeles City Councilmember José Huizar will join the Bureau of Engineering and architect and bridge designer Michael Matzlan at a meeting tonight in Boyle Heights to show the latest model and update the community on the Sixth Street Viaduct Replacement Project. We've given a lot of coverage to the plan for the new bridge as it could be a major bike-ped connector between the Downtown and Eastside. We'll have a full report tomorrow. Or, you can go to the meeting tonight. Details, here.
    • Tuesday, Saturday - Over the next two weeks, LACBC is conducting volunteer bike counts at locations throughout the city. Visit our calendar section to find out how you can volunteer,
    • Tuesday - We don't always promote Reason Foundation events, but when we do they are around congestion pricing and mileage-based user fees. There's a symposium tomorrow. Smart people will be there. Get the details, here.
    • Wednesday - While there are Walk to School Day events planned throughout Walktober, this is the official date. If you're school doesn't have something planned, don't despair, you can program one literally at any time. My son's Walk to School Day is the 24th. For more on Walk to School Day, visit the official website.
    • Wednesday - The City Council Transportation Committee hearing meets at 2 p.m. There is an update scheduled on Great Streets and an overall comment on how LADOT is doing from LADOT GM Seleta Reynolds. Read the agenda, here.
    • Thursday - At 6 p.m., the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism hosts a panel to explore community building in and around USC and South Los Angeles, with a focus on movements and organizations that are responding to the disparities and injustices that structure life in South L.A. Get the details, here.
    • Sunday - Following the success of the Pacoima Mural Ride is the Pacoima Mural Walk. Come take a stroll down Mural Mile in Pacoima on Sunday, October 12th to celebrate LA Mural Day with Los Angeles Walks and the Public Art Initiative. The walk will feature 10 murals and a special guest speaker. Get more details, here.
