A mix of a hugely important Metro Board meeting, some great bike
events, a Streetsie party and some news from some other Westside cities.
– Does a Pacoima Pedestrian Plaza qualify as “P3″? Attend and give your
input for the planned People Street Bradley Avenue Plaza. Meeting
tonight! Get the details, here.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – The Big Blue Bus
continues to plan for the arrival of the Expo Line. This week, they’re
holding three meetings to get feedback on how they should alter the
existing routes when the line opens in less than a year and a half. Get
the details, here.
Wednesday – The City Council is in summer recess so
there will be no City Council Transportation Committee. However, this
seems as good a place as any to congratulate Committee Chair Mike Bonin
and his husband Sean Arian on their marriage this weekend. Wooot!
Thursday – Active transportation, congestion
pricing, short range transportation plans, poor management of the
Sheriffs, it’s a full agenda for the Metro Board of Directors in their
last meeting until September. Read the full agenda, here.
Friday - Critical Mass. Wilshire Western. 7:00 p.m.
Saturday - Join Walk ‘n Rollers in Culver City for a
fun day learning how to bike and walk safely in your community. All
ages welcome and we’ll even have bikes and helmets for those without
(helmets are required on the course and group rides). More info.
Sunday – We’re having a small private party to
celebrate the Streetsie Win of Santa Monica Mayor Pam O’Connor as our
2013 Elected Leader of the Year at 2 p.m. If you’re interested in
joining us, drop me a line at email@example.com
