  • Wednesday 8/24 – The Streetsblog L.A. endorsed Healthy Streets L.A. initiative is scheduled for a vote of the Los Angeles City Council at their 10 a.m. meeting this Wednesday [agenda]. If the council does not approve it, then the measure goes before L.A. City voters, likely in the 2024 primary election. From Streets for All’s alert:

After a year and a half, it all comes down to THIS WEDNESDAY. The City Council has item #20 on its agenda to consider adopting Healthy Streets L.A. now, or send it to the 2024 ballot. The City Council no longer takes remote comments, and we need you to show up in person Wednesday at 10am at L.A. City Hall (200 N. Spring St. Room 340) and make public comment asking them to take Option #1, and adopt Healthy Streets L.A. Here are some talking points you can use. We suggest timing yourself to make sure you can say everything you want to say in 1 minute.
