If you’re here, you’ve already probably been to Streetsblog, but if you haven’t, Damien posted an extensive report on yesterday’s Transportation Committee meeting. I was happy to read that the Councilman Bill Rosendahl promised that the Cyclists’ Bill of Rights would not be amended, and in general, it sounds like the meeting – while not an unqualified success – was definitely a step in the right direction. As Damien ends his report:
Reading this post, you might wonder why the mood was so celebratory when so many uninspiring things happened during the meeting. The answer is simple. For a constituency used to second class treatment, seeing an engaged and animated City Council taking their sides was a watershed moment. Hopefully, it’s just one in a series until we live in a different Los Angeles.
