"The more I think about the LADOT's new plan for the Olympic-West Pico-East project the more I think they may have gotten things backward," began Streetsblogger Damien Newton about the first public meeting for the project last night. "While the public is discussing what alternatives they would like to see studied, the LADOT is promoting a plan they've already written which would take away peak hour parking and re-time the traffic signals to increase vehicle flow between Fairfax and Sepulveda. In other words, we're being asked to provide alternatives for the LADOT to study that would compete with the alternative they've already developed." There are still two more meetings left tonight and next week if you want to weigh in.
