The Week in Livable Streets Events

sblog_calendarAnother full week of activities. If you haven’t yet registered to vote, do so now. Literally stop what you are doing, and register to vote. The link is right here…

  • Today – Today is the last day to register to vote, or change the address at which you are registered to vote, and be counted for the November 4 election. You can register online, here.
  • Wednesday – The City Council Transportation Committee meets at City Hall at 2 p.m. The full agenda can be found here, but the most interesting thing seems to be a report on the cost of the city re-instituting its speed humps program, and a motion on how L.A. City might improve Metro Orange Line BRT operations.
  • Thursday – The Metro Board of Directors meets for its near-monthly Board Meeting. This month the Board weighs in on Active Transportation, a potential BRT from North Hollywood to Pasadena, revising the Metro Call for Projects and more. Read the agenda for their 9 a.m. meeting, here.
  • Saturday – Get involved in local freeway removal efforts! Join this two-Saturday free visioning workshop, though rsvp requested. Renowned architect and urbanist Stefanos Polyzoides will lead two sequential visioning workshops Saturday, October 25 and Saturday, November 8, 9-noon at Maranatha High School.   Transportation, economic and land use experts will provide information and answer questions.  They will lay the foundation upon which citizens’ ideas can be integrated to turn this fallow land into an economically and aesthetically viable district of Pasadena. Get more details, here.
  • Saturday – On Saturday, October 25, through a sponsorship by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), C.I.C.L.E. (Cyclists Inciting Change thru LIVE Exchange), along with Mujeres Unidas and other community partners, will lead a costumed bicycle ride, “Pedal to the Port: A Two-Wheeled Wilmington Halloween!” Get more details, here.
  • Sunday – Come join the “Boyle Heights Prometor@s” and Multicultural Communities for Mobility as we discuss potential bicycle lanes on Soto Street and Boyle Avenue. Along with any questions and concerns and see how other communities, nationally and transnationally are putting Bicycle Infrastructure in their own hands! Get more details, here.
