Next Round of Meetings Announced for Westside Mobility Study

Help shape the future of mobility on the Westside!

Transportation planners are gearing up for the next round of public meetings to discuss the Westside Mobility Study. The study is part of a project to create a transportation blueprint for the Westside – including multimodal travel, north-south rail connections, and parking solutions.

We first told you about the study earlier this year — when three community open house meetings were held to introduce the Westside Mobility Study. According to the project coordinators, community feedback has been robust over the last several months and additional outreach will continue to help guide project recommendations.

The project team needs to hear more of your ideas on how to improve circulation, parking and other ways to quickly move people through the Westside. Four identical community open house meetings will be held to obtain input on the project:

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 – Brockton Elementary Avenue School

Thursday, November 3, 2011 – Penmar Recreation Center Gymnasium

Monday, November 7, 2011 – Paseo del Rey Natural Science Magnet

Thursday, November 10, 2011 – Henry Medina West LA Parking Enforcement Facility

The meetings are designed to allow you to attend at your leisure. Stations will be established throughout the room to allow participants to suggest mobility improvements and have questions answered on specific subjects.  Topics include:

1) Project Overview

2) Bicycle and Pedestrian

3) Transit – Light rail, bus, BRT

4) Roadways

5) Smart Choices for Commuting

6) Parking

7) Project Ideas via Electronic Surveying.
