The organizing meeting of the Transportation and Mobility Committee of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils Congress will take place this Saturday, February 10th from 11 AM – 1 PM at Los Angeles City College on Vermont Avenue in East Hollywood. The meeting will be in Room AD311 on the third floor of the administration building.
Our special guests will be Miss Transportation, Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, and Dr. Paul Kim, President of the City of Los Angeles Board of Transportation.
Running the meeting will our Committee co-chairs James Okazaki, former Assistant General Manager of LADOT and Allyn Rifkin, former Principal Transportation Engineer of LADOT.
The purpose of the meeting is to determine how LANCC can help neighborhood councils individually deal with their local transportation needs and to discuss how NC’s can work together to tackle the regional problems facing the city.
A new program that might permanently alter traffic in this city by changing the commuting patterns will also be previewed.
LACC is located on the west side of Vermont Avenue at 855 N. Vermont, one block north of Melrose and one block south of the Red Line Station at Vermont and Santa Monica.
The meeting will be at Los Angeles City College in the Cesar Chavez Administration Building, (AD). The front of the campus is at 855 N. Vermont, just north of Melrose, however, the Ad Bldg. is at the back of the campus, essentially on Heliotrope. (See attached campus map.)There is parking under construction, so you should park in either the Snyder field lot on Vermont or Lot # 5, on Heliotrope. It may be crowded as school is in session now.
Parking is also available on the off-campus lot across Vermont from the meeting location at Marathon Street. Turn east on Marathon from Vermont to enter the lot.
Lastly... I will be appearing on KNBC's web newscast starting today every Friday at 2 PM for a 5 minute recap of my weekly blog postings:
