Ok, ok...we hear you. You don't like that we put the Streetsie polls in five different posts. Loud. And. Clear.
After the jump, you can find each of our five Streetsies polls. For more people's choice action, head over to the Streetsblog USA Streetsies. Knock yourself out.
But first, a pitch.
2014 was an exciting year for Los Angeles. The arrival of Seleta Reynolds heralded a new day for LADOT and the promise of Great Streets should be realized in 2015. But the hope and promise for the coming year was tempered by the roadblocks to safe streets put up on North Figueroa, the Hyperion-Glendale Bridge, Westwood Boulevard in West L.A., Santa Monica Boulevard in Beverly Hills and too many other streets throughout the county.
2014 was also an exciting year for the Southern California Streets Initiative, the non-profit that co-publishes Streetsblog Los Angeles with OpenPlans. Melanie Curry and Joe Linton joined Sahra Sulaiman on the writing team as Damien Newton focused more on the management of the non-profit, fundraising and public events. LongBeachize and Santa Monica Next both took off as independent news sources in their own right as Brian Addison (LBI) and Jason Islas (Next) proved that Streetsblog-style Impact Journalism can work in cities of all sizes.
And, we have another big announcement coming. But you're going to have to wait another couple of weeks...
Make a tax-deductible contribution to Streetsblog before the end of the year and you'll also be eligible to win this beautiful PUBLIC R16 bike:
Okay, now enjoy the voting. Polls close Friday at noon. We'll run the results early next week after the Board and staff votes are taken into account.
Don't forget to give! Have a Happy New Year! We'll be finishing a cleanse so you'll have to tell us all about it.
