#DamienTalks SGV 3: Pasadena Parklets and Temple City Complete Streets

11:35 AM PST on February 8, 2016

Welcome to episode 3 of #DamienTalksSGV, a public affairs podcast interviewing people that create and advocate for sustainable transportation in the San Gabriel Valley.

Today, #DamienTalks with livable streets advocates in Pasadena and Temple City about chances to get involved with efforts to bring parklets to the Pasadena Playhouse District and a complete streets plan for Las Tunas Drive in Temple City.

First, #DamienTalks with Greg Gunther, a resident and activist from Pasadena. Gunther has been working for years to bring parklets to Colorado Boulevard in the Pasadena Playhouse District. After years of work, Pasadena seems close to approving the plan for two parklets on each end of the Boulevard in the Playhouse District. If you want to get involved, join the Facebook Group here or the mailing list, here.

Second, #DamienTalks with David Diaz Avelar, a program manager with Bike SGV. On Thursday, the Temple City Council is scheduled to vote on one of three plans for Las Tunas Drive. Despite its history with progressive transportation, community pushback is causing some to worry that the Council won't go for the more progressive plans.

Bike SGV has a good rundown on both the meeting and the politics here. More details are also available in the actual podast.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of Downtown L.A.
