Planning the Future of Our Streets – An LA StreetsBlog Event
Tuesday, January 18, 2011
7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Streets can play an important role in the life of a community besides being a way to move cars from one place to another. Join LA StreetsBlog at KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum for a night of envisioning a new way to look at streets as a place to live, not just a place to drive. “Planning the Future of Our Streets” is a two-way conversation, not just a lecture where attendees will get a chance to model their own street, and discuss the issues with planners, advocates and politicians.
First Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris, UCLA Urban Planning Professor (and Pasadena resident) will present about the importance of sidewalks, their design, and how they fit into making a street great. Loukaitou-Sideris has written about this subject and her most recent book is Sidewalks: Conflict and Negotiation Over Public Space.
Rojas has led these workshops literally around the world, from L.A.’s Eastside to United Nation’s conferences in South America.
