This past week, two more pedestrians were killed by car on Hollywood Blvd. The Friday before last, another cyclist was tragically killed by a hit and run driver just off Hollywood Blvd.
This street is on the High Injury Network, acts as the face of LA for visitors, and is regularly closed for events. CicLAvia's Meet the Hollywoods showed just how friendly, safe, and successful a pedestrianized Hollywood can be.
San Francisco just voted to pedestrianize Market Street.
Manhattan just voted to prioritize buses and pedestrians on 14th street.
Now it's our turn.
At this first meeting, we will begin organizing and planning this grassroots movement to make Hollywood Blvd car-free year-round between La Brea and Highland.
Coffee and light food will be provided.
