Transit Coalition Bart Reed To Address LANNC Transportation Committee!

Transit Coalition Head Bart Reed To Address LANCC Transportation Committee This Saturday

Executive Director of the Transit Coalition, Bart Reed, will speak to the Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils Congress Transportation Committee regarding the history of his organization, what it has done, what projects it is working on and how the neighborhood councils can work with them. He will also suggest ideas on how we can effectively organize ourselves and become a citywide resource for individual NC’s to address local and regional transit problems.

A more detailed agenda will be sent out later, but the primary mission of the meeting is to discuss organizing the committee, what goals we have and how to best achieve those goals. If anyone has any ideas on these subjects, please email them to me and I will circulate them among those who have asked to be on the committee. And if you do wish to be on this committee – please email me at bradywestwater@gmail.com.

As for specific issues, we will discuss Northwest San Pedro NC’s motions to look at NC involvement in a citywide study and to ask LADOT to develop LA specific trip generation guidelines for development projects rather than using existing national standards. Pico-Union NC has also asked that we discuss the proposed making of Pico and Olympic one-way streets from downtown to the Ocean, particularly as it impacts communities nearer downtown.

The meeting will be held at the DWP Saturday April 14th in the Los Angeles Room behind the DWP cafeteria from 1 PM – 3 PM. This will be following the meeting of the NC Planning MOU Oversight Committee. The John Ferraro LADWP Building is located at 111 N. Hope Street due west of the Music Center. Enter from parking garage level on floor below the main entrance. Parking is free if you say you are attending the LANCC meeting and the nearest Red Line stop is the Civic Center Station at First and Hill Street. I can be contacted at bradywestwater@gmail.com.
