My Figueroa at Transportation Committee - POSTPONED
UPDATE (10/07/13): At the advice of the City Attorney, the motion will be postponed to a later, undetermined date so that the appeal and the motion can be on the same track. We'll update you all when the MyFig motion and appeal will be presented.
My Figueroa is the most ambitious street transformation underway in the City of Los Angeles, promising to transform a bleak commercial corridor into a prime linkage between USC and Downtown L.A. While LADOT solves the technical challenge of engineering Los Angeles’s first protected bike lane (a.k.a. cycletrack), the project’s political prospects recently became murkier. Under pressure from stakeholders along the Figueroa Corridor, CD 9 Councilmember Curren Price introduced a motion calling for further study of traffic impacts and asking for mitigation.
The Price motion asking for further study will be heard at the next Transportation Committee meeting. LACBC will be there along with project supporters TRUST South LA, Community Health Councils, LA Walks, and the (newly formed) USC Bicycle Coalition to keep the project on track.
Transportation Committee Meeting
Where: L.A. City Hall, Room 1010 – 200 N. Spring St., Los Angeles
