Villaraigosa wants to “close down some streets” on Sundays
Speaking about ideas he’s gotten from the Copenhagen conference, he had this to say:
“In the area of bicycling I’ve got to do a better job and the city’s got to do a better job… we’re planning to… close down some streets in the city. We’re going to give people, probably on a Sunday, an opportunity to just take over streets. Much as we took over the freeways you remember on the 110.”
That sounds a lot like cicLAvia to me, Mayor!
The freeway comment is referring to ArroyoFest, the memorable event that opened the historic 110 freeway to people several years ago. Coincidentally or not, Bob Gottlieb, one of the movers and shakers behind ArroyoFest recently wrote an opinion piece in the LA Times also extolling the virtues of a ciclovia in LA.
