On Sunday, September 30th, CicLAvia is partnering with the LA Phil and Community Arts Resources (CARS) and clearing the roadways between Walt Disney Concert Hall and Hollywood, transforming them into an auto-free zone where you can walk, run, skate, scoot, bike, and wander however you like! Six hubs along the route will feature art, food trucks, screen-printing, kid-friendly fun, and dancing, as well as live music from LA’s best musicians. Think of it as an eight-mile free space saved just for you – do with it what you will!
The Neighborhood Council Initiative (known to us as the Street Blitz), run by the Bureau of Street Services (BSS), will be in Granada Hills North real soon. Our area will be assigned a two-person crew on a hot asphalt truck for one day to patch street potholes, pop-outs, small eroded or cracked areas, and do minor curb and sidewalk patching. The crew is not equipped to handle tree roots that have damaged the street, or are they able to do any major repair for uplifted sidewalks.
Up to 15 locations will be inspected, so we’re looking for the worst spots that can be patched. Depending on the conditions and amount of asphalt required, not all identified locations will get fixed during the blitz. Remember, you can always report troublesome locations via 3-1-1. We’re asking for your help in preparing that list for submission to BSS. Since this is based on Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council boundaries, the locations MUST be north of the 118 freeway, west of the 405 freeway, and east of Aliso Canyon, up to the County line. Click here for a map of our boundaries.
Please make your submission no later than July 6.
Include the type of repair (pothole, pop-out, depression, minor lifted sidewalk, etc.), the address (preferred) or intersection, and which side of the street (north bound, east side, etc.). The more info you can provide, the less time spent by BSS trying to find the location. Remember, potholes and minor repairs only. Tree root damage is out, as are streets and sidewalks that require more extensive repairs.
Send your request to [email protected].

The City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning is exploring ideas to encourage vibrant communities and employment hubs around the region’s growing transit network through the Los Angeles Transit Neighborhood Plans (LATNP) program. The planning effort looks out to the year 2040 and considers how new land use and zoning regulations for the neighborhoods around five Orange Line stations can promote active, walkable places and achieve State objectives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by planning for growth near transit. At these open houses, the community will have an opportunity to learn about:
• Community input received at workshops held in July 2016
• How community input is being incorporated into the initial concepts
• What the next steps in the planning process are
Both meetings will consist of an overview presentation, followed by an open house featuring stations covering each geographic area. Drop in any time during the open house to learn about the plan and provide feedback.
If you are unable to attend a meeting, visit www.latnp.org to:
• View materials and learn about the planning effort
• Provide feedback and ideas
• Sign up for the interest list

For over 40 years, our sidewalks, crosswalks, and bus stops have gone mostly unimproved in the City of Los Angeles. The Tripping Point goal is to highlight the importance of these public amenities on our quality of life. Come join the movement to support an even better Los Angeles with safe, accessible, and dignified travel options for all.
This past June we hosted a free Advocacy Summit to organize residents and build a constituency that can effectively advocate for fixing sidewalks, crosswalks, bus stops, and planting more trees in our communities. We hosted over 150 residents from across the City in Boyle Heights (recap here), and this month we’re taking this organizing effort to the Valley in Panorama City on Saturday October 21.
