Angelenos do not yet have jetpacks or tele-transporters to rescue them from gridlock. But they do have a new Mobility Plan. Passed by the L.A. City Council in June, Mobility Plan 2035 seeks to rethink L.A.'s streets for the 21st century.
The plan envisions Los Angeles as a truly multi-modal city, with emphasis on transit, bicycling, walking, and place-making -- and de-emphasis on the personal automobile. It also seeks to reduce the city's 200 annual pedestrian fatalities to zero. It will institute road diets, speed restrictions, and infrastructure upgrades in every corner of the city.
The question many are asking -- and suing over -- is, will the plan create gridlock in the process?
Please join the Westside Urban Forum to discuss this historic plans and its impact on all Angelenos (at least those without jetpacks).
