Our next regular meeting is Thursday, October 16th at 9am at the Coffee Connection, and we’ll be discussing ideas for Great Streets, the Mayor’s plan for improving streets in the City of Los Angeles, and specifically in our case, Venice Blvd.

Venice Blvd between Beethoven and Inglewood has been designated a Great Street, and with that designation will come beautification and safety improvements, as well as walkability upgrades and infrastructure enhancements.

But what will it look like and what ideas are possible? Join us for the meeting to start taking a look at what other parts of LA are up to, as well as what other cities are trying.

Here’s an article in the Argonaut mentioning Great Streets, Venice Blvd and the Mar Vista Business Association (now Chamber of Commerce).

We meet at 3838 S. Centinela at 9am. See you there!

    I think it’s crucial that Venice Blvd – which used to be an old Pacific Electric route – get some transit infrastructure upgrades (which, if done well, should get more people out of their cars and reduce congestion). If the city builds some decent off-street parking (like near the Promenade in Santa Monica) or uses zoning incentives to get developers to provide it, it might be possible to use some of the space currently used for parking for a Bus Rapid Transit lane like Wilshire’s getting.
