    LANCC agenda has been posted, Legislative item #1 appears to have transformed the anti-road diet motion into one that still argues (without evidence) that road diets have negative effects:

    1. The Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) (XXXXXX Neighborhood Council) takes the position that there shall be no blanket prohibition of road diets; some are beneficial and some are not. The Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC) (XXXXXX Neighborhood Council) recognizes the beneficial effects of a road diet along certain corridors, but road diets create confusing, negative effects along other corridors. Communities that will be impacted with a potential road diet, including neighborhood councils, shall be consulted extensively both before and after road diets are proposed.

    Everyone in attendance who cares about Vision Zero and reducing roadway deaths should speak out against this motion.
