Councilman Joe Buscaino (CD15) announced this week that he is taking his Public Works Committee on a series of hearings around the City to gather public feedback on his proposal for a $3 billion general obligation bond to reconstruct the 8,700 lane-miles of streets that are in failed or near failed condition. When the idea was first floated in January, LA Walks and LACBC, along with over 20 other advocates and organizations, responded swiftly, calling for any new revenue to be put toward complete streets, not just rebuilding our 20th century infrastructure.

The downtown one of this new series of hearings was last night and LA Walks and LACBC were again represented, reminding Councilmember Buscaino of our recommendations to incorporate complete streets, sidewalks, and multimodal performance measures into the program. Now it's your turn to call for complete streets when the hearings reach your neighborhood. You can read our policy brief or jump straight to some talking points to use at your local hearing.
